I believe it’s a different age for everyone but,I think it’s once a female starts having their period
When a girl starts her period, she is able to have children. For each girl, this will be different. Does that mean they should? No, of course not.
You have several pregnancy questions — some you should know by the time you’re old enough to be on the pill (previous question). Ask your mommy or your health care professional.
Yes there are some sad cases of very young girls having babies, Girls can start having babies when they start having periods.
Some girls start their first period at 8 or 9 years old, while others don’t start it until they’re 15 or 16. The average age is 12 or 13. The best way to figure out when you may start menstruating is to look for other signs of development, and ask your mom or older sister when they started their first period.
The YOUNGEST girl to give birth on record was 5 years old. She never gave the name of the man who raped her.
Lina Medina was born on September 27th, 1933 in Ticrapo, Peru. At age 5, her mother, Victoria, brought her to a hospital because her stomach was increasing in size. Her parents originally thought Lina was possessed by evil spirits, but upon examining her, Dr. Geraldo Lozada found she was approximately 8 months pregnant. A month and a half after her diagnosis, on May 14, 1939, Lina gave birth via caesarian section to a baby boy.
As soon as they start having their periods. Its common in some countries for 10 year olds to get pregnant. The barbaric practice of sex trafficing & selling girls to older men makes this very dangerous
Whoever impregnated that 10 year old girl should be in jail!!!! And if it was another minor, then both mothers and fathers should be arrested for impersonating parents!!!! No joke intended. This is a heinous and reprehensible act!!!! Also,the 10 year old is not a woman,she’s a child!!! Someone should have protected her from this. Someone was NOT paying attention!!!
They can get pregnant whenever they start menstruating. The youngest age was 5, but no not all 5 year olds get their first period then. It is different for all girls. But, just because they are capable to have a child, doesn’t mean they should. And no, you can’t just get pregnant on your period. So, leave the nasty til’ you’re married and are mentally, physically, and financially ready to have a child with a man that you know and love. Leave that first time for someone special. Don’t just go ‘bang’ any guy you see because you don’t think you can get pregnant. You can get pregnant any time of the year, not just when you are on your period.
A child at the early age of her period as the same thru, when she’s ready as becoming a woman and ready to start a family.
As the age is most important factor affecting a women chance to conceive and have a healthy child. As every women age their fertility declines. A women fertility starts to decline in the early’s 30.
