Period 15 days overdue
Posted on: 09/09/2011
My daughter is 11.5 years old. Her periods started at 11 years. This month her periods haven't come and she's 15 days overdue. Is this it serious or normal? Should I consult doctor.
When periods first start they are frequently not regular, which makes it hard for her to know when to expect them. You can help her by making a calendar she marks with headaches, cramps, and periods, so she learns how she feels before her period starts. She can also carry a pad and change of underwear to avoid surprises. Good luck!
