I'm 15, 16 in 5 months. I'm 5'0 and 167 pounds. I got one period when I was seven but I never got another one ever again. What could be wrong with me? I have no breast growth either. I'm still in the budding stage, the nipples have not risin. I'm really scared because my mother got her period when she was 13. So what's going on with me?
You probably have low hormone production. That could mean that you never fully develop or that you just develop really slowly. I'd go to a gynaecologist and have them do a blood test to check your hormone levels. This is relatively common. Sometimes they'll give you hormone replacements, but sometimes diet changes can be enough to help you produce the right hormones.
Still, it could be nothing. My mom started her period when she was 16, but my younger sister started hers when she was 13. You can never really tell when it'll start.
