How to Talk to Your Daughter About Menstrual Periods

Your little girl is growing up and is showing signs that she is about to start her period. Where did the time go? How should we talk to her about this? We know parents have many questions as they gear up to have this vital conversation with their daughter about periods.  This week on the podcast, Dr. Lesley Breech, a Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecologist here at Cincinnati Children's offers practical information about when and how to have this conversation. Listen as we discuss the average age a girl should start her period, how long first cycles should last, irregular periods and when to visit the doctor, plus, when to talk to your daughter about her period, and so much more.
