It is normal for periods to be irregular for the first few years after starting your periods. However, it's usually best to check in with your doctor if it's been more than 3 months since your last period, if your period is coming more often than every 3 weeks, or if you haven't had your period in the past month and there is any chance you could be pregnant (in other words, if you've ever had sex).
