    According to a study published in Pediatrics in 2010, 15 percent of American girls now reach puberty by age seven.Among black girls, the rate is at least 25 percent at that age. And the thing is, the average age of onset seems to be headed downward, at least for white and Latina girls. While the age of menstruation hasn't declined as rapidly as the age of breast development, it nevertheless has dropped steadily. Currently, the average girl starts menstruating at 12.4 years. In the middle of the 19th century, in contrast, the age of onset was typically more like 16 or 17, and it was 14.6 by 1950. Since then, it had dropped an astonishing few months every decade.
