We would recommend a full evaluation for delayed menses if a girl has not by 3 years after the first signs of puberty (nipple growth) or age 15. You can discuss this with her PCP, and see if there are initial things to look into, but this happens occasionally.It does so more often in girls who are shorter and develop later than their classmates.They grow another 2.5 inches after they start.
