Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Usually by this age girls have secondary sexual characters such as enlarging breast bud, growth of axillary and pubic hair.
If these features are not present I suggest you to take her to pediatrician for clinical examination.
Tests such as complete blood picture, thyroid profile, and other investigations can be planned after physical examination.
Hope I have answered your query.
