My daughter is 12 and missed her period this month. She is 95 pounds and very athletic. I just have no idea what could the problem. Please help.

Also, if she has low body fat, her periods could stop altogether. She could still get pregnant, though, so make sure she's not sexually active.

It's pretty common for it to take a year or two before they are more regulated. My girls have been getting their periods for 2ish years and will still sometimes be 'late'. They are also quite athletic.
