Exclamation Puberty...

ok so I only have one daughter.... and she will be 14 in a few months... she has yet to have a period.... should I be concerned? I hear of so many kids starting their periods around age 9.... and it starts to make me feel like something is not right with my daughter... don't get me wrong.. I am more than happy that we don't have to deal with that yet LOL I am just wondering if it is *normal* should I make an appointment for her to see a Dr? She is in 8th grade,,, she will be a freshman in high school in the fall!

Re: Puberty...

NOPE! Some of us are just "late bloomers." I think I was about a month before my 15th bday. My sister was 17 16...it just depends.
Is she thin? Do you drink organic milk? Is she is ballet or gymnastics? All those things can contribute to starting later.

Re: Puberty...

IDK really know what is normal. I can only tell you that me and most of my friends got ours in 4th grade and by the end of 5th grade all of us had it. It was 16 of us. Also for the first couple of months I wasn't really sure what it was because it was only spotting so when it came I was thinking I had hurt myself while I was playing. kwim. Maybe she has had it but hasn't said anything because it is so light she isn't sure what it is.

Oh, yeah, sounds totally normal to me. But, I'm no expert or anything. Do you remember how old you were?

no I don't think she has... it is something we discuss and have even discussed with her friends ( who think she is so lucky) we talk about discharge and stuff... she is a big hypochondriac so I know if she even had a tint of something she would insist I make her an appointment LOL also she has not developed in the boob area really either

Re: Puberty...

Breast buds will come before menstration (in my experience).

The only thing the doctor can do is put her on a pill to start her. But, why would anyone want to do that? lol
