In brief: Be patient
The timing of menses involves a complex interplay of the hormones that grow you taller, and those that prepair your female organs for life after puberty.
Being first or last at anything at your age is stressful, but understand that you will stop growing taller soon after starting. Most only grow 2 inches more. Chances are your genes will make you grow taller & you will start when your body says so.
