Hi Stunka

There is no specific age that girls start to menstruate. Some girls start as early as 9 and others as late as 16-17. So don't worry, everything in good time.

you are 12 years old!i dont think you need worry for at least another year or so.
most girls get it between the ages of 12-14 but most the latter half so no need to stress about it.
and enjoy it while you dont have it becoz if you dont use tampons its quite a hassle
but good luck anyway
