I’m 18. I have breasts and hair in the necessary places, but no period. Should I be worried?

Girls who are active in sports or are very thin may get their period later than other girls. Eighteen is definitely on the late side, so it’s a good idea to make an appointment with your health care provider to find out what’s causing the problem.
