Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Missed or Irregular Menstrual Periods

Irregular periods are common in the first few years after you first start menstruating. Periods then become normal and flow monthly on their own --without treatment -- but sometimes the problem of irregular periods can continue or worsen.

Speak to your parents, a responsible adult -- a teacher or guardian, or your health care provider. They can help arrange for you to see a doctor or nurse practitioner, if necessary.
