Hi, Lavern.

When you miss a period it can be a bit concerning but chances are it is normal and/or due to a lifestyle change or sudden changes in your daily habits. Have you had any changes in your eating behaviors, or had additional stress in your life recently? During every girl's teenage years it's generally normal to miss a period and be irregular. Aside from that there are many causes for a late or missed period, but just to name a few; rapid weight changes, an eating disorder, excessive exercise, stress, side effects from medications etc.

However, for one girl, irregular periods may be normal to her and for another girl, it may be quite predictable every month. If your periods are normally regular, it is best to see a doctor to ensure it's nothing serious. Even though it could be normal, it's always best to be safe and see what's going on.

In the meantime it'd be a good idea to keep pads or tampons in your purse or backpack in case you get your period when you aren't expecting it such as when you're at school or out somewhere. Hope everything is okay, Lavern! Take care of yourself.

If you're sexually active, test.

Otherwise, have you had significant weight changes? New stress? Started working out? Is your weight low?
