Hello Tyara, Thank you for the question.
Have you ever checked yourself into a specialist obstetric and gynecologist? Menarche is the time when a woman experiences her first menstruation which ranges from the age of 10-16 years. The average age of menarche is around the age of 12-13 years, or 2-3 years after growth of breast tissue (telarche), but can occur earlier or later. The age at which a woman first experiences menstruation varies and can be influenced by nutritional intake, physical activity and weight. You are advised to check with your obstetrician and gynecologist if you have not experienced menarche:
3 years after breast growth begins
at the age of 14 if accompanied by excessive secondary hair growth or have an eating disorder or excessive physical activity
at the age of 15 years
Why do you need to get checked first? Because your condition might be caused by other medical conditions that require further treatment such as hypopituitarism, the prolactin hormone, Cushing's syndrome, androgen insensitivity syndrome, and others.
In the meantime, please continue to consume nutritious foods, avoid strict diets, avoid excessive physical activity, and maintain ideal body weight.
Hopefully this information is useful.
