In brief: Transitions

In the 6m-1yr after first menses, the body is responding to various hormonal changes.
They often do not release eggs , so a hormone that sets timing does not form, leaving the estrogen driven buildup to breakdown in menses in irregular patterns.As long as 3 months between cycles can be seen & if delayed, they are often heavy.After egg release normalizes, a pattern forms & periods more predictable.
