To become pregnant as young child do you neccessarily have to have a period?

I remember my cousin started her period at 10 and I remember her dad telling her you know you can become pregnant you know. I don't know if that was a warning or an advice. Me and my cousin were and still are good girls. I thought that was strange.

  • A period is the body's response to a lack of the egg implanting in the walls of the uterus. So in order to bleed, the body needs to know the egg that has come down the tubes wasn't fertilized. First the egg, then implantation or not, then period or pregnancy. That's the series the body goes through month after month.

    Once a period has started, ovulation has also begun and pregnancy can occur regardless of the age of the girl.
