How young can a girl be and start her period ?

The average age for a girl to start her period is around 12 years old, but it can range from 9-16 years old. Every individual develops at their own pace and there is no specific age at which a girl should start her period. If a girl starts her period before the age of 8, it is considered early or precocious puberty and it is advised to consult a doctor. It is also normal for periods to start later, as late as 16 years old.
