Girls usually start their periods between 10 and 16 years of age. Most girls get their first period when they’re around 12. But everyone develops at different rates, so there’s no right or wrong age to start having periods.

Your periods will start when your body is ready. This is usually about 2 years after the first signs of puberty appear. In girls, the first signs of puberty tend to be breasts beginning to develop and pubic hair starting to grow.

Having your period whilst preparing for an exam or travelling can be inconvenient – delaying your period can be helpful when these important events occur. We provide period delay tablets for those looking to stop their period affecting an important event.
