Average Age


When I was younger, I know the average age of first period was between 9 - 13. Now, I hear that you can get your first period as of 8 years old.

Does anyone have an idea of the average age?

How would I bring it up to my daughter?

My daughter asks what my tampon is all the time. I just keep telling her that I'll tell you when you get older.

Tomorrow is her 7th birthday. Now, I really gotta start thinking. Help?
