i was 10, it was a night and i had to pee. i felt something thick sliding down and when i looked down it was what i now know to be a muscle lump. i freaked out bc we never had conversations about it and shouted for my mom. she came in and told me to shut up bc dad was sleeping (walls were made of cardboard), then just helped me put on a pad and said "this means youre a grown up girl now!", telling me how hers went and yada yada. in retrospect telling me to shut up about it wasnt the best thing to do but in general it was an okay experience. my next one was ~6 months after that when i was 11.
my mom and aunts all had their periods at 12-14, so my mom went crazy going to endocrinologists etc. with me about it. it paid off in a way that we found out early that i had pcos and could then treat it.
after this, my sister got assessed early on and now she gets hormone blockers.>>7299>the docs also told me basically what says pesticides, fertilizers and all the crop protection products they grew up in the middle of were endocrine disrupters that could cause early puberty amongst females."
the docs also told me the same thing fam, but the twist was that meat these days has a lot more endocrine hormones (so that it grows faster), which causes the girls who eat it develop faster than in the past.
>girls who have early period tend to be plumpier and more curvy than other girls.
