Am I a late bloomer?

I was reading that you usually get your period around the same time your mom did. If that's true, I should have my period by now. I was wondering if that's normal not to get around the same time. Am I just a really late bloomer?
That is not necessarily true. The important thing to remember when it comes to periods is that EVERY girl is different and develops at a different rate. Some girls may get their periods around the same time their mothers did, and some will get it earlier or later. It’s not unusual for girls to get their first periods in their late teens. It’s really just up to Mother Nature!
Comparing your body to your mother’s, your aunt’s or your sister’s is silly when you think about it. When they mature earlier than you do, these comparisons can make you think that there must be something wrong with your, since your not following the schedule their bodies set. But , babe, you’ve gotta remember: There is no normal when it comes to puberty. A chat with your doctor can really help put your mind at ease…and make sure there really isn’t anything wrong with your bod.
