  • I was 14, My sister was 9.
    For you dd, it should be around the time you started yours.
    I only have boys so this is something I will never go through. :(

  • My daughter had her first period just a few weeks before she turned 13; she started about 6 months after I did. The hormones in meat and dairy can cause girls to get their first period as young as 9.

  • Our DD is 12, nearly 13 yrs old and has not started yet. She has begun to develop and shaves her legs, but that's it. Now, I started when I was 14 so we think she has a bit to go.
