Late Bloomer Advice

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I've noticed some of the questions girls have asked you, especially the worried late bloomer. I just thought I'd share some advice as well. I had my first period when I was 15. So this is to all you late bloomers: Don't worry! It's all about time. If you're not comfortable with talking to your mom about your body and menstruation, like I am, pick up some pamphlets or check out this site for info. I know I learned most of what I know about menstruation from booklets. That's how I learned not to worry about being a late bloomer. And don't worry about skipping periods during your first year menstruating. I had my period every two months during my first year. Actually, be somewhat grateful. Now that my period is relatively regular (every 28 days), I wish that it would be like my first year. Now it seems like my period starts too quickly after the previous one ends. So to sum up, don't worry! If you haven't gotten your period, just be patient and be grateful for now because you don't have to step into a bathroom every 4–6 hours to change a pad.

I'm 13 and all my friends have theirs. I've had discharge since I was 11. I am a late bloomer, 32a. I am about 80 pounds and 5 feet tall. I have armpit hair, as well as hair down there. Idk if this has something to do with my weight. Does it?

Can someone help me? I will be 14 at the end of this month, and I haven’t gotten my period. I’ve had discharge for 2 ½ -3 years. I’m not underweight or overweight. I’m not in a physical sport. Sorry for the tmi and the long comment. But, around November, my discharge started to get chunky and thick. I decided to ask on bg, and a girl said she had gotten funky discharge for about a month before she got her period. But, a few months after that, it went away. I started to get light brown discharge. PLEASE TRUST ME WHEN I SAY MY LIGHT BROWN DISCHARGE IS NOT MY PERIOD! Sorry, but whenever I posted about the brown discharge, people thought I had gotten my period. I am 100% sure it’s NOT my period. But the brown discharge has gotten much more frequent, a weekly-daily basis. I get normal discharge and light brown discharge. And 1-2 months ago, I started to get cramps, they hurt. I’ve had at least 3, but I haven’t had one for a couple of weeks. I have all the signs, but no period. Help!!!!

Vadelma, It may be your weight, I'm going to be 14 in a few weeks and i'm 115, but thats normal for my height and age, you sound like you may be a little underweight. But it might not be that either, But i know how you feel, I've had all the signs forever! Sorry, I guess I'm not much help.

PLEASE HELP: I'm turning 14 in November, have pubic hair, armpit hair, discharge since 3 years, my boobs are 34A. But: I haven't got my period yet. Does that have anything to do with me weighing barely 70 pounds? Please help! Everyone else has 36B-C boobs and their period!!
