In brief: Menses vary

Depending on when you started having your period, it can be very variable.
This usually settles down by two years later, but then many things can disturb your period - extreme weight loss, chronic illness, or just plain stress. In fact, worrying about your period can make your period late! How to worry less: Avoid behaviors which concern getting pregnant. Use contraception if need to.
