Cycles vary: especially related to age, hormones. activity, stress, tension and illness. Quite normal at your age. Keep a diary.

Yes: Most teens do not have real regular periods, and not all women follow a 28 day cycle, that is normal. Totally off subject, but I was in Tetouan many yrs ago (you would have been just a baby!) as part of a medical team from the United States, giving lectures across Morocco from a variety of specialties. Met some wonderful doctors there!
