Some basics: Puberty is a complex interaction between genes, hormones, diet & activity & time. It can be as short as a few years or take 7+. The only way to understand your status is to have a few tests done. These can be started by your regular doc who may send you to a specialist if the issue is not clear. A family history of delayed puberty would suggest a time issue.
