Dear Dish-It, I Keep Skipping Periods

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

Is it normal to skip your period for almost three months? My mom is getting worried. Beats me why, but I want to know if it's normal?
Ivet


Dear Ivet,

It can be normal to skip your period - or not have a regular period - for the first couple of years of menstruation. The reason it's not uncommon to have irregular periods is because your bod is going through a billion changes during puberty and it can take a while for it to regulate itself. There are a lot of great sites out there that can explain it better than I can. You can check out the section on periods at kidshealth.org or the teen section of www.healthywomen.org. Your mom might be worried because she thinks you're sexually active. If you're not having sex, then pregnancy is not an issue, and you might wanna tell her that so she relaxes. If she's still worried, maybe it's best to make an appointment with your doctor.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
