In brief: Not necessarily

A girl should show some signs of pubertal change (breast bud) by 13 and menses by 15.
If neither are present an evaluation by a pediatric endocrinologist would be worthwhile.Sometimes a visit with your regular doc can get the workup started while you wait for the specialist visit.
