so im 13 years old, but almost 14, and i got my first period right before i started the 7th grade. well i find this embarassing and im not the kind of girl that can talk to people about this kind of stuff. i get my period like 5 times a year...it seems like. i never know when im gonna get my period because theres no pattern to it. the last 2 times i had my period was around new years eve and then around march 5th, and i havent had it since. and sometimes i go like 60 days without getting my period. and i have my period for 6 days. and i havent come across tissue in my blood. i cant really seem to find anything helpful online. and when i get my period, i usually dont get cramps. im not very active. im not overweight, i only way about 100 lbs. is this normal??? because i dont think this is. do i have a disease or something??? im a virgin. i saw something online that if u dont get your period for over a year, then u will never get it again...but this only happens to women in the 50s. i think its called menopause or something like that. so if i dont get my period for over a year, will i never have it again, even if im 14 years old??? if i ever get pregnant, will i have a miscarriage? can i even get pregnant??? please help me!!!!!! im afraid to ask my mom or my doctor, and i know i never will tell them about this. but please respond back! and i hope im not the only one out there that has this problem.
