The First Period and Hygiene
On average, we get our first period (menstruation) between the age of 12 and 14. Some girls start as young as the age of 8. Other girls are 18 years old when they get their first period. Our first menstrual cycle starts when our body is ready. It usually arrives during puberty. It is important to keep our bodies clean during menstruation.
