By what age should you get your first period

What is the oldest age a girl should wait before going to doctor, before she gets her first period?

DM

Dear DM,

Most girls will get their first period between ages 9-16. The first period usually occurs about two years after the beginning of puberty (growing underarm and pubic hair), so you can estimate when to expect the first period.

If a girl hasn't gotten her first period by age 16, she should check with her doctor.

Sincerely,
Amy
