Maybe take your daughter to an adolescent medicine doctor. They specialize in adolescent gynecology and would probably know much better if this is a concern or not.
If you need referrals in the tri state area, let me know.

My sisters my mom and I got our periods pretty early. Most between 10-13.
When my daughter turned 15 and she hadn't gotten hers yet I went to the pediatrician. She told me not to worry and if she doesn't get it within the next few months I can come see her again. She got her period at 15.5, a few months later.

I also got my first period on my 16th birthday (my pediatrician also told us that until 16 is ok, and she would only get concerned after that), and was irregular for years. I got married several years later than my friends, and all those years had secret fear that I would have trouble having kids. BH BH I have a few already, kein yirbu, with oldest born very normal amount of time after my wedding and others following closely.
I hope your DD is totally fine too!!

I was 15 and a half when I got my first period but even that period wasn’t so heavy and didn’t seem like a regular part of life until about 16/17 years old. My periods only became ‘regular’ cycle after I had a baby.

Haven't read all the responses.
I took my DD to the pediatrician around her 15th birthday since she hadn't got her period and was pretty under-developed. DD actually asked me to make the appointment.
Doctor said as long as development has started (small breasts and pubic hair) - nothing to worry about.

At 15 I wouldn't be worried, even if other familiy menbers started earlier. As others have said up to 16 is in the normal range and even if she starts later than that it doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem.

Does she show other signs of puberty? If so, did she start developing at a later ago than her sisters?

I got my period at 16. Best thing ever, I wish the same for my girls.
OP, before 16 there's nothing to worry about.

My DD got her period at 15 1/2. One thing her pediatrician told me at the previous visit was to load her up on calories and calcium, and that will help bring it on. Icecream, dairy products, etc...go for it OP. You'll feel relief when she gets it B"EH.
