This is Dr. David
this can be normal for some girls to have their puberty come after age 16
she should see her doctor to get blood testing if you are worried for pituitary hormone
that is good she is very active on cheer competition squads.
is her growth and height normal for her age on growth curves?
when was the last time she saw her pediatrician?
