Default 18 and still no menstrual cycle

My daughter will be 18 in 1 week. Ever since she was 16 I have taken her to the doctor and GYN. We have done the ultrasounds everything looks good, we have done the blood work everything seems normal. We have done the vaginal check to make sure everything looked good down there (poor baby)- NOTHING-

GYN said to bring her back once she turns 18 and they will look further into it, and that although it is not common it is still normal to start later in life.

I was 14, most of my female family members were between 13-16. What should I do? Anyone have any ideas? Anyone know of any websites about this?

Dumb question - especially coming from a guy who is not in the medical field - but is your daughter extremely thin?

No she is around 5'7" and roughly 150lbs
She eats healthy- with the exception of being a typical teen.

Actually I was thinking along the same lines as Big George. Is she developing in other ways - breasts and pubic hair? Is she very athletic? Have they tested her hormone levels?

I should have cover all this in my original post.

Normal development in all other areas- along with the mood swings normal teens have.

Not very athletic in that aspect- she has been in dance, drill team, soccer but nothing extreme.

Hormone levels are normal- and have been tested since she was sixteen.

I just don't know what to do-

Is your daughter freaked out about it? ... extremely worried?

Okay, thanks. I've got no other ideas.

My wife was a "skinny mini" when she was in high school - not more than about 95 lbs on a good day. No periods for her (according to her, I did not know her then) until she was about 18.

Oh honey, please relax. I had the opposite problem. I started when I was 9.
It's akin to a couple trying to get pregnant. It will happen. It's just not her time yet. She feels your stress, and her body is complying.
