    Hello, I am 18 years old and still have'nt gotten my period, I mean nothing at all! My younger sister already got hers at the age of 10 and my oldest sister got hers at the age of 9! what is wrong with me?? Why am I super late? Is there any chance of me ever getting it? I have small mosquito bites and some pubic hair but not much... im still very under developed. help me please.

    Have you gone to see the doctor. I would start with that, especially since both your sisters started so early.

    Yes, My mom began to take me to the doctor when I was 16 years old since I still looked 8 who would'nt worry? lol and the pediatriciansimply gave me estrogen pills to get my buds to start showing and some sort of needle for growth.. I took them for about a month and then gave up on it, I grew on my own, im not so tall cause my family isn't and I didnt take the pills because I was afraid of the side effects. Then upon my 18 birthdya my mother took me to the Gynecologist.. but we never returned since then because I felt very uncofortable.. the assistance kept coming in askign me about my period problems and everytime I'd say still nothing they'd chuckle and It made me feel bad about myself so I never went back..... I do look older now ppl mistake me for 16 atleast but still.... no good. :/ I need a specialist of some sort

    The OB/GYN would be the specialist to see, but seeing as how poorly you were treated at the office you visited before, I think it's time to search for a new Gynecologist. Dr's shouldn't be there to ridicule, they should be there to help. I hope you find the right one!
