    I started when I was 12 and they have always been regular. I'm on the pill now though so I haven't had a period for a few months!

    I'm a bit worried tbh, I'm almost 20 this year and I still haven't started. I went to see my doctor recently and he said it was normal and I should "Grow up."

    The healthcare in this country is ridiculous.
    I'm quite surpirsed that they said that to you :-/ I'm almost 18 and I haven't started neither. I FINALLY decided to go to the doctors in December and they scheduled me in for blood tests - and when some of my hormone levels came back as abnormal, I was referred to the hospital.

    At my first doctors' appointment, my mum told the doctor that she thinks I might just be a late developer and she replied by saying 'At ............'s age, it's not considered as late development anymore. It means that something might be wrong.'

    Since then Ive had three blood tests, had to take a specific tablet AND had an ultrasound. And I'm a few years younger than you .

    Ive been back and forth from that place for 4 months, and they STILL dont know what's wrong with me.
