Well... Aunt Ruby hasn't visited for nearly a month now. And this happened last cycle; a month or more late.
Perhaps it is because of my age that it so irregular? I'm 16. But I'm wondering if I'm doing anything wrong to cause these huge delays?

How much do you workout? If you workout a lot (3+ hours a day) then that is probably what is causing the delays. When your body is so focused on repairing muscle, it does not have time to focus on bringing your period. Also, your age is probably affecting your regularity. In time, if your period does not get more regular, you will need to see a doctor.

I'm the exact same way. I used to skip months at a time. I'm 16 also. What I did was go on birth control depo shot (This stopped any period from occurring) then I got off it after a year. And now my periods are much more regular. I get it consistently every month now. Try a period tracker on the App Store.

Working out too much, too little body fat, too much body fat and diet can all affect your hormone balance, which can cause irregular periods. If they are constantly very far apart you should ask your doctor about it.

Also some girls' periods don't get more regular till 2 or 3 years after they get it, if it's more recent for you.
