Your doctor is right.This could occur while you are adolescent.Hormonal balance need to be established and that is the reason of an irregular cycle in this age.But, surely you need to be ruled out few conditions that is closely associated with irregular as well as infrequent cycle.Are you obese or deeply stressed? Those could be an issue.Also you need to be ruled out for thyroid disorders as well as cystic ovaries which could turn your cycle infrequent.So,meet your doctor to get tested for them,.
