11 year old development

My 11 year old daughter just started sprouting breasts within the last few months. How soon do you think she will get her period? I honestly cannot remember with myself. It seemed like it all happened pretty fast, lol.

  • I'd guess anywhere between now and the next year or so.

  • On average the time between breast buds and menarche/first period is 18 to 24 months. While that is average, it may not be the case for your daughter. Those who progress rapidly can reach that milestone within a year whereas those who progress slowly may take 3 or more years.

  • It's different with different girls. It could be a few months ( my niece) or a couple of years (her sister).
