Menstruating Too Soon?Dr Weil was asked, "My daughter is six weeks short of her 11th birthday, and just got her first period. I was surprised, as family history on both sides reveals onset after age 13. We have been very careful to eat organic dairy, meats and produce, so the theory of hormones in the food causing early onset shouldn't apply. She is developing normally (the start of secondary sexual characteristics, height and weight). Should I be concerned? And what is the average height gain after onset?"
