at what age periods start



When your first period (menstruation) will come, it depends largely on genetic factors, such as when your mother or sister’s menarche came. Many times environmental factors and your physical weight also play an important role in Period’s arrival. The right weight of your body and the right amount of fat in the body are important for producing hormones, due to which your first period comes. This is the reason that usually the weight of girls increases slightly before menarche. Due to the increase of obesity in society, the period of girls started coming early.
Girls whose periods are preceded by the age of 12, they are at higher risk for breast cancer, obesity, type-2 diabetes, and during pregnancy, other women may face more difficulties.


If a girl’s menstruation comes before 10 years of age or after 17 years of age, then the risk of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure are higher than other girls.
It has also been seen that the girls whose period starts after the age of 12 live longer life.
