I'm a 5'10'' 130 lb. teenage girl, and I've had my period twice ever, beginning last year. the last time I had it was 9 months ago. There is no pattern, and I'm really worried. Should I be concerned, and how much?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Irregular periods or long gap between periods can indicate possibility of anovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles without periodic egg release from ovary), hormonal derangements, PCOD etc. As you cross puberty and grow up, your menstrual cycles and hormonal levels start getting into a definite pattern, and you start having ovulatory cycles (menstrual cycles with periodic egg release from ovary) which are more regular. Discuss about this with your treating doctor/gynecologist. Go ahead with further management as indicated to regulate your periods. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
