Hi!!! Welcome to healthcaremagic community forum....

Menstrual cycles commonly are irregular in puberty age group women... They usually get rectified as one grows older...

However irregular menstruation, abnormal weight gaining, mood swings, depressive nature can be a symptom of polycystic ovarian syndrome which is also fairly common...

If no other cause such as PCOS is found, I expect your cycles to improve gradually and you are expected to have normal and regular periods by the time you reach 18 to 20 years of age. Persistently irregular menstrual cycle, more weight, persistence of mood disturbances necessitates a gynaecological evaluation and medical treatment...

Watch out for what you eat. Good and healthy diet with proper stress management is equally important; if you want to increase the chances of regularizing your menstrual cycle...

Hope this message was useful to you...
