The average age to start menstruation in the US is 11-12. There are several reasons a girl may start later. Athletes, dancers and very thin girls tend to start later. It may not be a bad idea to take her in to the dr and get a physical just to rule out anything else.

No, actually the time for a girl to start her period should be between the ages of 7 to 18 any time before or after that you should see a doctor. If your child is physically active then she probally will start it quite a bit later.

If you read my answer, it says the "average" age in the US is 11-12. It may be "normal" as you state to start anywhere between 7-18 but that would be different from what I said.

Like what most people are saying, 12 or 13. I got started mine a few months before I turned 13. But it's not the same with everyone.

A girl usually starts her period at the age of 12 but that doesnt mean that all girls will have their period at the same age.

Well most girls get their periods at 12 or 13, some get them at 9 (early) or 15 (late). All are normal.

I don't know, usually they start from 10 to 13 or 14 so I do not think you should worry that much, but I would see a doctor just in case
