  • As a teenager? Yes. My cycle didn't normalize until I was about 20 or so, and I started menarche when I was 11.

  • To me that seems awful close together and could be signs of several different problems. I'd still go to a OBGYN and get that checked out.I had that and ended up needing surgery. Better safe than sorry.
