In brief: Menstrual calendar
Normal periods come anywhere from 21-35 days apart and should last less than 8 days, and wear less than 8 pads or tampons per day.
There should not be any bleeding in between periods. If periods are irregular and ou do not want to get pregnant, birthcontrol pills is an easy and safe way of regulirizing your cycles. If you don"t have a history of blood clots, no allergies, no undiagnosed abnormal

In brief: Good diet/exercise
Many things can make a period irregular. You should first take a pregnancy test and then see your doctor. Stress, diet, medications, exercise, etc can influence the timing of periods.
Likewise, problems with your thyroid, obesity and disorders of the ovaries can also effect your cycles. Contact your doctor for appropriate tests/treatments.

Depending on the type of irregularity, your doc may want to make sure there is not a risk of cancer.
