Ok, so I'm almost 15 years old and still haven't gotten my period. What's wrong with me? All of the rest of my friends already have theirs and I was wondering when I'm going to get mine! HELP!

As you may know, some women are "late-bloomers." a lot of facotrs go into this: heredity, body mass (women who are too small cannot menstrute), stress (from sports or school especially), etc.

If you do not start your period by the age 17, you will need to see a doctor.
