Dear Andy, My mom says I'll start late at the age of 16. I am a girl, and I'm ten. Is that true or false?

ANDY'S ANSWER: If you haven't started puberty yet, there's no way to tell when you will get your period. Your Mom may have some inside information if she was a late bloomer herself. Even if she was however, it doesn't guarantee that you will be the same.

You will have some signs that puberty has begun and you can somewhat gauge when you can expect your first period from these signs.
