How slim is slim? Underweight?

Best advice go to the GP if you think her weight is causing a delay in her periods.

My DD didn't start until 14.5, but she was a lot smaller. She suddenly started to grow just before she turned 14.

No not under weight but a sow developer. She has tiny boobs going on so in that regard I'm not worried

When I was fifteen and no periods I was sent to all sort of tests. The tests concluded that I was a slow developer. My periods finally started when I was 17.5. But my was also 17 when hers started.

How much does she weigh. Apparently it’s a thing for women who weight less than 45kg (regardless of height) not to have them. Not sure how true it is but I have heard it a lot over the years.
