Is it just puberty?

I'm a 16 year old female, I'm 5'3" weight 90 lbs.

I'm flatchested and I look like I'm 12. I've been menstruating for roughly 3 years but I've recently had an ovarian cyst and my period has disappeared for several months now. I don't know if thats because of the cyst or not but whatever. I'm very thin, but I'm wondering if my weight will change as I continue to grow. Am I skinny because of puberty or what?!

Will I continue growing? Will my breasts grow? Do I have a hormonal problem or am I just a late bloomer? HELP!

    When you are very thin it can stop your period. Once your body hits a certain body percent as in fat mass your hormones will go out of wack. Thus causing your period to stop. I suggest eating more. The Cyst really shouldn't have anything to do with it. I'm pretty sure it's the weight factor. It's not a big deal now, but when you get older say child bearing age then I would suggest putting on a few pounds to help with this problem.
