Question: maasik dharma (periods) start at what age and what precautions should be taken once it is started?
Answer: normally masik dharm starts at the age of 12-13 or it should start in this age. It is called menarche. Compared to the girls of cold countries, it starts early to the girls of hotter countries. Due to today's atmosphere and climate it has started to occur at the age of ten also. Contrary to earlier times, these days it is easy to get information about sex. Movies, books, novels, magazines, television programs and internet- all these provide sufficient information to girls about men-women relationships, their body structures, their love and sex. Due to this girls do thinking and discussions about this topic. Hence this thing affects their minds.. Mind and menstrual cycle have a very deep relationship and this relationship continues till the cycles are on.maasik dharm stops at the age of around 50.
