Hi!
Since you just started your periods in Nov 2012, it is normal to have any of these: very light periods, heavy periods, missed periods, sometimes light and sometimes heavy periods, irregular periods. After the start of periods, it may take up to 3 years for a girl to get a very regular cycle. So, it is normal to miss periods. Also the routine the girl maintains during this time, her diet and family history of settling into a regular cycle of periods plays an important role. Stress both physical and mental, irregular sleeping hours and diet poor in nutrition can all cause the periods to become irregular in a girl who started her periods less than 3 years ago. Try to regularize your routine and see. Eat a balanced diet and do something like yoga or meditation or listen to music to distress yourself. However, if you do not get periods by March end, you can consult a gynecologist about this. Polycystic disease of the ovary, low iron, hypothyroidism and hormone imbalance (which can happen due to reasons other than mentioned above) can all cause the periods to become irregular. Please talk to your mother regarding this. Often daughters follow the same menstrual history as their mother’s or that of their maternal aunt or grandmother. Hope this helps. Take care!
