I’m 13 and I haven’t had my period in 3-4 months…..

…..I’m not sexually active and the first time I had my period was when I was 10-11. So shouldn’t my flow be normal already? This type of problem had happened before when I was 12 or 13. I hadn’t had my period for 2-3 months but I came back then disappeared again… should I be worried?

Thanks for asking this!

It is important to know there are many reasons why someone may not have a regular period.  When someone gets their period for the first time, it is possible for it to take some time before someone has a predictable and routine cycle.

Sometimes a person just naturally has a less predictable period, which can be perfectly medically okay.  Also, lots of factors can make a person’s period fluctuate. Things like being sick, sleep, stress, exercise, and diet can all make a person’s period change or fluctuate.
