 Girls Who Have Early Periods may Face Birth Issues

A new study from the University of Cambridge has revealed that girls who have early periods are at risk of facing complications while giving birth later in life.

The study analyzed 3,739 first-time mothers, who had given birth in the 21 months between April of one year and the next December. The study revealed that girls who started their periods before the age of 12 needed interventions later in life during pregnancy as compared to girls who got their periods at a later age.

"This study aimed to test the prediction that earlier onset of the menstrual cycle is associated with an increased risk of operative delivery for any given maternal age," said lead researcher Professor Gordon Smith.

The study also said that girls who got periods after the age of 15 needed the least intervention.
