Hi,

I myself started puberty very early; in fact I began my cycle at just 9 years old. I recall my breast growing in before that too. I hope this helps.

I think typically it's around 11- 17 but i have know a girl as young as 8 to start, I remember remember a story in the paper when I was younger of a 9 year old who had a baby and she was just 3 when she started puberty how true that was i dont know but it stuck in my mind. these cases are very rare.

Hi I am a Mom of 3 grown daughters. I have known little girls to start at 8 but that is unusual. My mom was 10 , I was 12. My oldest was 16 my middle daughter 13 and my youngest 16 so you can see it really varies but I think typically it really is around 5th and 6th grade so 11 and 12. Hope that helps.
