Skipped periods within 1st couple years of starting periods are normal, related to hormonal fluctuations, growth spurts, and other things mentioned above. Of course consider pregnancy only if indicated. Big weight gain or loss, depression, or missing 3 months of menstruation in a row is time to have her see her doctor.
