Endocrine Eval: Menarche is considered delayed if after 16 yo. Most cases of delayed pubertal development are "constitutional" & will require no intervention. Additional abnormalities of the endocrine system can contribute to delay and some will also effect uterus development. Hyperprolactinemia can cause delayed puberty with a particular inhibitory effect on uterine growth and development. F/u w/ endocrinology.

Find out more: When menarche has not occurred by 15, an evaluation is in order to look for hormonal and other causes.Other than delay, defects in the formation of the ovaries, uterus, cervix & vagina are rare but possible.The description of hypoplastic uterus, suggests rokitansky syndrome or mrkh, a collection of problems when female plumbing does not form right. I would seek someone with experience with this pbm.
