  • This is totally normal they start around your daughters age, no need to go see any doctor, what you need to do is have the puberty talk before it happens.

  • What is a doctor going to do? Time to have the PERIOD talk with her. With in the next 2 to 5 years she will be having one.

  • Wow, I didn't get my period till I was 14yrs old and puberty didn't hit me till I was 12. I didn't know it could start that early!

  • @worriedmommy600: I didn't get my period until 4 months before I turned 16. LOL I was about 12 when it hit me too.

  • My daughter is 7 and I noticed a couple of pubic hairs last time the dr checked her down there. I was concerned about early puberty, but the doctor did not seem concerned at all when I asked her about it-she said it was normal.
