My Period Is Random

I've had my period for almost three years now, and it still isn't regular. My periods don't space out equally, and sometimes I get spotting in-between periods. I'm worried something's wrong with me.
 
Don't stress-during your adolescence, periods can be really wacky. In fact, it's normal for your period to be abnormal! You might get it late one month and early the next. It might be heavy and then light, and spotting is even normal, too.
 
Unfortunately, it can take many years for your period to be close to regular. But it's not a bad idea to talk to your doc about these questions at your next check-up. She or he can give you more info on what to expect and talk to you about your specific concerns.
