Is it possible for a 4 year old to start her period?

My friend is trying to say she started her period when she was 4years old. I don't see how it would be fiscally possible.

I know there is quite an age difference between 4 and 9, but didn't you hear about the 9 year old girl (recently) in Mexico that had a baby by a 17 year old?

I have heard, that because of all the hormones they put in foods, it affects how fast a person "grows" up. So honestly, I wouldn't be too surprised.

However, I do think your friend is pulling your leg.

Is there by chance you have a site or something to prove that? No offense but I just don't understand why she would say she has.

Your friend is lying to you since there is no way she could have started her period at the age of four. the average age where girls can start their menstrual cycle is 12. However, there are others who can begin as early as eight years depending on their hormones.

That sounds very unlikely. How does that even get brought up?

I agree with the others, without puberty there's no way.

There can be possible reasons a 4 yr old can have vaginal bleeding-such as sexual abuse and injury, but menstrual cycles, though they have been reported in adolescence as young as 7-would be highly unlikely in a 4 year old.
