19. I honestly don't know what to make of this
I was fed soy formula. I began menses at 12, which isn't particularly early, I don't think. But I also have both endometriosis and a fibroid, which I've read may be connected to the phytoestrogens in soy formula. But I don't know that that issue has been settled.

Of course, I've also heard these things blamed on the hormones they give milk cows.

So, damned if ya do, damned if ya don't.
