Where is the cyst?How large is it?Does she have breasts and pubic hair? If so, at what age did they appear? Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.
Perineural cysts usually cause no symptoms, and I've never heard of them preventing periods.Periods usually begin 2-3 years after breasts begin to develop. Average age to begin periods is somewhere around 12.5 to 13 years.Most likely the 14 year old will start periods before she is 15. If not, I would take her to a doctor. Best wishes.
