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 .
