Dear BeingGirl Experts,

My 19-year-old niece has not started her period. She won't go to the doctor to have herself checked. Should she have any concerns about something being wrong with her?

Hi Erika,

Yes, when teen females reach 16 and haven’t started having periods (menstruating), they have primary amenorrhea (lack of menstrual flow). Your niece needs to see a gynecologist or adolescent medicine specialist. A physical exam and medical history is need for the practitioner to diagnosis and understand the cause. Once this is understood a treatment regime can be planned for her. It is very unusual for a girl to reach the age of 19 and to not have started menstruating. Insist she see her healthcare provider about this.

 

You sound like a caring aunt. I am sure your niece will appreciate your concern when she sees this can be treated. Thanks for your concern and we hope this is helpful.
