What is causing this irregularity?

For a while now, longer than a year, I have been having problems with my periods. I started my first one when I was about 14. I'm 17 now. On April 6, 2012 I got my period for the first time in months. But when it came it was so bad that I literally thought I was going to die. The pain was unbearable and the flow was extremely heavy (sorry for TMI). It lasted about 5 days I think, which is normal for my periods when they do happen. It stopped on the 11th and I was glad because I thought it was going to be normal again. I didn't get it for another 7 months. When it came the next time it was lighter than the last one, no cramps at all, and only lasted about 3 days then went away. Then I just got it about 2 weeks ago for the first time since the last one and it lasted 1 day and a half and was just medium flow with no cramps. I am worried why they are so spread out like this. I can go 6 and 7 months without getting it and all my friends have theirs. I have never told my mom or friends about it, it's too embarrassing. I also have odor and dampness. I change undies and shower regularly but when I put on clean undies, about 10 or so minutes later they are damp. :( Please help! Desperate!

You have no need to be embarrassed. You need to talk to your mom and you need to go see a doctor. There are a number of reasons for it to be irregular some serious some not. Just go and get a check up. Your doctor may want to put you on low dose birth control just to get you regulated.
