Your period can be irregular for a lot of different reasons (besides pregnancy) such as stress, exercising, gaining or losing weight, being sick, taking certain medications, or having a hormone imbalance. It’s a good idea to keep track of your cycles and talk to your health provider about your periods.

If you're quite young and recently started it can be pretty irregular (there was a point when I didn't have mine for 4 months when I was 13) but maybe talk to a doctor in case because 6 months is pretty long. And if you're older and it should have stabilised by now definitely talk to a doctor.

How many periods have you had before? It's normal for a girl to have her first period and then nothing for a few months, or have a few irregular ones and then a longer break before she gets into a regular cycle. But if you've already got into the cycle of having normal periods and then skipped six months then no, that's not normal, and you should see your GP.

If you've stabilised and have a regular cycle normally then yes.

It’s not standard but probably fine. Maybe due to over exercise or under weight maybe?
Just see the doctor to get things checked.

Its not fine - even if its due to being underweight its really bad long term. Fracture risk in particular.

As you say, GP.

Well to be fair most women don’t have periods for most of their life now due to long term contraceptives. Does no harm, though need to keep an eye on bone density.
But yes see a gp.
