This cross-sectional study aimed to determine the age at menarche and its socioeconomic determinants among urban female students (nÂ =Â 680) in Bangladesh. The mean age of the respondents was 14Â Â±Â 1.43Â years. Majority of the respondents were unmarried (98.4%). The mean age at menarche was 11.6Â Â±Â 3.6Â years, median 12Â years. Almost one-third (35.7%) of the participants had menarche at the age of 12Â years. There was no statistically significant difference between age at menarche before and after 12Â years with the socio-economic characteristics, except education (pÂ =Â <0.001). In the multivariate model, only higher education was statistically significant predictor of age at menarche.
