    $\begingroup$ What is your definition of reproduction? Does it just involve a female getting pregnant, or does it involve carrying it to term. It seems highly unlikely that a 3 year old could carry a fetus to term. $\endgroup$ – Cort Ammon Jun 6 '18 at 3:45

    $\begingroup$ Cross-posted at Health and underresearched.- please delete one post and refine the other, most of all add some prior research and correct the 3 years for a girl's reproductive age. That's just plain nonsense. $\endgroup$ – AliceD Jun 6 '18 at 12:26

The youngest fathers recorded were 11 years old (see wikipedia > List of youngest birth fathers).

The youngest mother recorded is L. Medina was 5 years, 7 months and 21 days old when giving birth, which is rather astonishing! Of course, she gave birth by a caesarean section. She had an extremely early puberty; she appears to have had her period when she was 3 years old only. You might want to have a look at wikipedia > List of youngest birth mothers. According to this article, a mother (L. Gryshchenko) became a mother at 6 years old and gave birth "naturally" (not by cesarian section).

    $\begingroup$ @L.Diago Not probably, not definitely, but definitely not - in its current shape the question is unfit for any site in the SE network. Whoever upvoted the question should re-think their motivations to do so -1. The answer is fine but removed my upvote as it's an answer on a question that should've been improved first, or put on hold altogether. $\endgroup$ – AliceD Jun 6 '18 at 13:04
