When is the right time for a girl to start shaving?!

Question: When is the right time for a girl to start shaving.?
Please help! I would really like to know when I should start shaving. Right now, I am 12 years old. Should I wait until I "start", or what.? I don't think I have "started" yet.Health Question & Answer

I'm not sure what area you are talking about shaving. Here is a timeline of shaving you can try out though:

Shave legs: Middle school (6th or 7th grade)
Shave bikini line: Freshmen year of high school
Brazilian wax (woohoo!): Senior year of high school

Edit: I started shaving my legs in the 6th grade, but didn't get my period until 8th grade, so you should be fine shaving now.Health Question & Answer

i waited till i was in gr 7. in the summer though, to get practise.

and im glad i waited! your legs stay smooth for like a day, and then you get prickly legs!

also, you get cut alot.

i say, wait and see what your friends do. and make sure its okay with your mom :)Health Question & Answer
