You may want to edit out your height and weight as that breaks code of conduct.

It sounds like you're a bit underweight (although posting weight figures is against the Terms of Service/ Code of Conduct, so please edit out the figure). Typically, being underweight can delay menarche, so you might not get your period till a bit later. However, it is normal for females to not reach puberty up until 18. It's not "typical" but it's not uncommon either. Sometimes ballerinas and dancers get their period on the later side, due to their physique (low percentage of body fat). If you're an athlete, it's not uncommon for your period to be a bit delayed.

If your doctor hasn't said anything, you should be perfectly fine If you have any concerns though, you can always call your doctor and ask questions. But I'd say just relax and wait for it. Trust me, no need to rush tampon usage

My mother didn't get hers until 16. It happens sometimes. I wouldn't worry about it unless you are getting abdominal pain, then you may want to see a doctor for things that might be putting it off that are unhealthy. Also, next time you get a check up with your doctor, mention it. Your doctor might be able to give you more info pertaining to your weight.

Like the others said, you could just be a late bloomer. My aunty didn't get hers until she was 17, but my mum, her sister got it at 11. Everybodies, bodies develop at different rates so don't worry, it will come

168 cm is like... 5'6" or so right? If the problem is that you don't weigh much for you're height (it's been edited but I read the mention of you're being a bit underweight on my way down) that could be a problem. I am not saying it's a bad thing, but I have been told being really light or really heavy can cause delays in puberty and/or periods (after you get your first one).
You might just be a late bloomer. It really isn't that big of a deal, 10-16 tends to be the average, with most people falling around 12-13/14. It's one of those things where you hit a certain age and want it. Then you get it and hate it. Eventually you get over hating it but still. You might want what ever pride or gratification comes with it, but don't worry about it to much. If you are almost 17 and still don't have it, I'd check in with your OB/GYN but you still have at least 2 years

You should ask the doctor about it. Has rest physical maturity come in.. breasts hair curves.. etc... ??

I don't think you should worry to much till your 16... but ask about it just to make sure there is nothing wrong and that your just a late bloomer which there is nothing wrong with.
