What The Age You Had Your First Period Says About You (Says Science)


Welcome to womanhood.

I know exactly how old I was when I got my first period. I was in 6th grade, so I was 11. I don’t remember much about the first glimpse of scarlet in my underwear. I’m sure I was upset, frightened, and alarmed.

You can imagine how unhappy I was when I read this article in Bustle.
The age you are when you first start menstruating, also known as menarche, has a sizable influence on many factors in your life. But what’s most concerning is that women who got their period before age 12 are at a higher risk for both heart disease and chest cancer.
Thanks, Aunt Flo!
