i am 13 years old and i've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 2 years now.
I got my period about 2 and 1/2 years ago.but Lately I've noticed that my period has been really out of wack. It seems to be on the same cycle but much shorter and lighter. Could this be because i am a vegetarian? If so, what can i do (besides eat meat) to fix this? Will this be potentially harmful to my fertility when i am older?

I've been a vegetarian for last 20 years, and have regular periods, normally lasting 5 days. Also I know personally hundreds of other vegetarians (since their birth), and vegetarianism is not the cause of your problem. If you need protein (meat), you can find it in milk products, lentils, gluten, seitan,dal, on daily basis. So there is no need for meat at all.
