Puberty and no period at 16
Posted on: 12/04/2008
hi, i am 16 years old and i haven't started my period yet and i am not sexually active. my breasts look underdeveloped, but i do have pubic hair. yesterday i noticed a thick dark brown glob in my underwear, and more today. is this a sign of my period or an infection? and is it weird that i have not started yet? should i see a doctor?
My vote is that you are starting your period! Congrats! I would keep track on a calendar and look for a pattern, or see your doctor if worried!
