From what age can a woman carry a child?

Is it from like 11 onwards or when she gets her period or what? Sorry I think I have a morbid curiosity, theoretically if a girl got her period at like 7 or something the pregnancy would most likely damage her or wouldn't go to term? Sorry I have a friend who's child started her periods at 7 and I was just wondering...

  • If I'm not mistaken, as soon as a girl starts her period, she can get pregnant.  However I'm not sure if a seven year old would be able to handle a pregnancy.  Lets google it and see, ;)

  • Yes, as soon as she gets her period.
    There was a girl aged 5 who had to have a cesarean, but at term, many years back.

  • I think your body is "ready" to make a baby as soon as you start your period
    But Im sure that it takes a toll on the person who is very young like 9 or 11

    also the 9 year old that I heard about is not a cuirrent pregnancy I know about it
    we were studying different american cultures in my psychology class and she was a study. It happened like 5 years ago

  • It's so sad, she was obviously raped.

  • i would think as soon as she gets her period. however im sure a child carrying a child would damage her body and stretch things that aren't even fully grown yet.

  • There was a 11 year old on Montel once who was pregnant ..they kept her anon ...but she had to have a c-section because her body was not 'built' yet to push out a full term baby.
