Your Bod

Its been a year, and my period is still irregular

Well, your period is normal! It can take up to two years for your body to get used to menstruating. In that time, it will come and go as it pleases-and that’s not unusual. Why? Your body is not producing hormones at even levels yet, explains Dr. Charles Wibbelsman, author of The Teenage Body Book, but they should regulate themselves soon. Just so you know, stress can get your cycle off-schedule, too. And for some girls, their periods are never all that regular, even after many years. While it’s annoying now, just try to be patient. Your body is working hard to solve the problem, we promise.
