Today at the age of 83, the woman who became a mother in her childhood still refuses to tell her story to anyone. The struggle she had to face in her childhood as a mother was unexplainable but the world wants to know her story in her words as she holds the record of the youngest mother in the world till now.
Meet Lina Medina, who was just 5 years old when she gave birth of her first son, Gerardo. Yes, you heard it right, she was just a child when she became a mother.
On May 14, 1939, her parents admitted her to the local hospital doubting that there is a tumour inside her stomach. But after examining her, doctors were shocked that she was actually 7 months pregnant.
She was suffering from a disease called precocious puberty for which her first menstrual cycle started when she was just 2 years old.
At the age of 5, she had started becoming a woman. Her father was suspected and also got arrested for raping her but released for lack of evidence. Till now she never spoke about the real father of her first son.
