Periods, Period

My periods are nine months apart! Is this normal?

 
 
I’m 15 and have gotten my period a total of three times over the course of a year and a half. I can go as much as nine months between each period. Is this normal?

There’s really no such thing as a normal period, period. “It can be normal to be irregular. It depends on how long it’s been since you started your periods,” says Dr. Endrika L. Hinton, a gynecologist at Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

“Generally, if it has been more than two years, you should be getting more regular.” If after two years you are still not on a stable schedule, Dr. Hinton recommends seeing a gynecologist. “Some of the most common problems can easily be addressed so I wouldn’t worry, but make sure you see your doctor.”
