this girl says she knows a girl that got pregnant at age 11 is that possible?
World's Youngest Mother
Peruvian five-year-old Lina Medina, accompanied by her 11-month-old-son Gerardo, and Doctor Lozada who attended her son's birth, are shown in this 1940 file photo taken in Lima's hospital.
When her child was born by Caesarean section in May 1939, Medina made medical history, and is still the youngest known mother in the world.
Lina Medina's parents thought their 5-year-old daughter had a huge abdominal tumor and when shamans in their remote village in Peru's Andes could find no cure, her father carried her to a hospital.
Just over a month later, she gave birth to a boy.
Medina was born on September 27, 1933 in the small village of Paurange. She was only 5 years 8 months old at the birth of her child on Mother's Day, May 14, 1939.
Born at full term at Lima's maternity clinic, her child was taken through a caesarian operation (Dr. Lozada and Busalleu, operators, Dr. Colretta, anesthesiologist). The child (boy), weighing 2,700 grams, was well formed and in good health. Child and mother were able to leave the clinic after only a few days.
Doctor Lozada has conducted very detailed studies since the diagnostic of the pregnancy which aroused much curiosity in the country; he took an x-ray of the child and her baby, established a diagnostic of the fetal situation, observed the state of functionality of the little mother who had begun menstruating at the age of 8 months. At four years old she had already developed breasts as well as pubic hair, her body proportions were a bit amazing and her bone hardening a bit advanced, things that are often observed in cases of such premature pregnancy.
After taunting from schoolmates, Medina's son, Gerardo - who was named after one of the doctors who attended Medina and who became their mentor - discovered when he was 10 that the person he had grown up believing to be his sister was in fact his mother.
Gerardo died in 1979 at age 40 from a disease that attacks the body's bone marrow, but it was said it was not clear there was any link with his illness and the fact his mother had been so young at his birth.
Medina herself married and in 1972 had a second son, 33 years after her first. Her second child now lives in Mexico.
The nerd is right but it happened many many years ago and wasnt confirmed. There have been many 8, 9 and 10 yr olds who have had babys. Most through abuse. Its very sad to think your friend MAY have gotten pregnant at this age. I really doubt the story though. She sounds like an attention seeker friend I had in yr 7 at school lol.
yeah I have herd of a girl like 7 or 8 that got pregnant- the girls mom ended up raising both of them - it is a really weird situation, and very possible.
Yes Its possible.
AT AGE OF 5??? I have never heard of that. I've heard that the youngest mother
was 8 years not 5... Wow... Thats TOO young :S
only if she had started her period ... but she would probly have to have an abortion cause the brith would most likely kill her and the baby
Nerd is very funny tell me about the girl that got pregnant at 5.. well you can get pregnannt as soon as you have started seeing your period
what THE HECK???...how disgusting!...get a stable life, get married, then have kids!...some people are just TOO impatient
nerd is right a girl got pregnant at age 5... doesnt that creep you out? but anyways it is possible.
yes, it is most definantly possible
as nerd says, the youngest mother was 5 years old
I didnt know that nerd thats crazy but yea if you have a period you can have a baby!!!
I did not know someone got pergnate at the age of 5 wow how freaky is that.

Yes thats possible. If the girl had a period and had sex.
The world's youngest mother was 5.
