  • You should first consider how old you were when you started your period. Usually, girls will follow their mothers in that way. It's not unusual for a girl to be 14 or 15 years old when she begins her period. Is she in puberty? If not, then I would ask her doctor.

  • I wouldn't worry to much about it right now my daughter didn't start until she was 15 years old. I was also concern about her starting late so I asked our doctor and he said that he wasn't worried about because there are alot of hormones in red meat and chemical in our food that is probably why she hasn't started yet and not to worry she will, But if you are still worried about it you can ask your doctor.

  • No! I didn't have my 1st one until I was 14 1/2. Is she otherwise developing normally? If you are concerned, get her checked out by her Doc.

  • Nope-she's just lucky!
    I had a friend who didn't start until she was 18, and she was very developed early. I on the other hand, had my period when I was 11, and I was very small and not quite developed. Everyone is different, and let her know that it will come, and then she'll curse it!

  • I got mine at the age of 12. My daughter just turned 13 in May and still hasn't gotten hers. I know it is coming because she is very moody, and bitchy.

  • My dd is 13 too and hasn't started her period yet either, she is very small for her age...and I was 14 when I started, my mom was 15...we're just late bloomers in this family!! I wouldn't worry yet...if at 16 she hasn't started then I'd say there may be a problem.
