  • Started to bleed the day after my 13th bday didn't bleed again until about 7 months later and then every month from then. It just her body, I doubt anything is wrong with her.

  • It is normal. However, if you feel really concerned about something, or if she is complaining of really bad pain then you should suggest going to the gynecologist.

  • Sounds like it is normal, it takes a while for a teen/preteen to become regular.
