Teen stopping birth control

My 16 yr old daughter was on birth control for 7 months while taking prescription Accutane. She has been off of it for 3 months and her monthly period is not regular it's more of a discharge. Is this normal and how long can she expect before it returns to normal?

It is not unusual that after stopping birth control it may take awhile for menstrual periods to return to a normal schedule. For some women, this can take as long as a year (although this is unusual).

In addition, teenagers menstrual cycles are often erractic.
