Hi Anon,

It is possible for her to begin her period, but bleeding could be a symptom of other conditions.

Please contact her health care provider to have this checked out.

If it is her period, this information may be helpful. Sit down with her and look at it together.

My 10 year old just got her period yesterday too and i'm devastated. Check to see if its a steady flow of bleeding and if so it's probably a period.
