9yrs, I was so early Mum hadn't talked about them before and I thought I was injured...

11. Apparently the earlier you start, the later you finish.

14. I thought I was a late bloomer. I got one period and didn't get another for 9 months. The doctors said it was because I was underweight. They were wrong. I have pcos. Yes skinny people can get it to. I wasn't diagnosed until I was trying to have a baby.

I'd just turned 9, my daughter was 10
