Question: My daughter will turn nine in December. She has begun to grow pubic hair. What is the approximate time frame in which I should expect her to start her period? Is it as unusual as it seems to be maturing at this age?
physical changes of puberty occur somewhere between the ages of 9 and 16. The first
sign in females is breast development, which usually occurs between ages 8-14, with an
average age of 11-12. Pubic hair appears, on average, at age 12-13.
Menstruation usually occurs one to two years after
