It is normal to have irregular periods during the first 2 years of the periods starting. If it is more than 2 years since she started, she should be evaluated further by a endocrinologist or a gynecologist.
Usually during the first 2 years after her 1st menstrual period, the cycles are is irregular due to anovulatory cycles. After 2 years, the maturation of the axis should be complete and menses should be regular. If that is her case, you should take her to see a gynecologist or endocrinologist to have further evaluation.
