In brief: Common finding

During the first year after menses, ovulation is not occurring on a regular basis and delays up to 90 days or so are not uncommon.
Once ovulation becomes more regular after the first yr, cycles are more predictable.If the girl is a bit overweight and has more body hair than expected, you may be dealing with polycystic ovaries that often yield irregular cycles. A visit with your doc can help.

In brief: NO

, the beginning of the menstrual cycle, can be irregular initially.
It will become regular after several months. If this irregularity continues for more than 1 year a specialist should be consulted.
