Hello...., Malnutrition or anorexia nervosa  can delay puberty . The normal variation in the age at which adolescent changes occur is so wide that puberty cannot be considered to be pathologically delayed until the menarche has failed to occur by the age of 18.. So you still have time ..it not pathological yet . Vide variations in age is common . Anyhow consult endocrinologist once.
