Hallo ek is baie bekomerd ek is 14 en het nog nie begin menstrueer nie .ek word 15 in oktober ,ek is baie maer omdat ek te min eet ek weet ek moet gewig aansit en werk daaraan . Ek is net bang my tyd loop uit om te begin menstrueer en dit sal beteken dat ek nooit kinders sal he nie (waarvoor ek baie lief is). Ons dokter het gese dat ek 48kg moet weeg om te begin menstrueer is dit waar ,is daar enige iets wat menstruasie kan aanhelp.

Dear Lalla

It is important to mention whether you have developed any secondary sexual characteristics such as breast development and pubic hair development. Should this be poorly developed, than I would suggest urgent investigation.

However, if the breast developmental stage is complete, and other sexual characeristics are in place than I would not begin investigations as yet. It would become necessary once you have reached 16 and no menses have occured.
