Not yet, but I'm sensing it coming. I asked my doctor about it about 6 months ago and she said "Nine and a half, ten, that's not considered early anymore." Ugh!

Starting a period at 10 or 11 is perfectly normal nowdays. And when a girl first starts it's also very normal for her periods to be very irregular. She may have a couple a month, one then not another for months, one every other month, etc. Until her body regulates it, they can be crazy, but perfectly normal.

My dd will be 11 in June and hasn't started yet. BUT she has breasts and pubic hair so I know it won't be long! I started when I was 10!
