I am 14 and I still haven't gotten my period yet. Is this normal ?

Okay. I am 13 years old, turning 14 in August. And I still haven t gotten my period yet. Is this normal ? Also. What do you think is better, a pad or a tampon ? A tampom looks like it could hurt. My mother was 13 when she got hers. My sister was the same. And my mother does not use tampons , only my sister does. Cause she s a lifeguard during the summer.
