A cohort study of 3,169 girls born in April 1984-April 1987 in Odense and Aalborg, Denmark, was performed to examine whether maternal prepregnancy body mass index (BMI) accounted for daughter's age of menarche (AOM) and, if so, whether it accounted for part or all of the association between daughter's BMI and AOM. Multiple regression analyses adjusted for covariates indicated a weak inverse association between maternal BMI and AOM and a much stronger inverse association between offspring BMI and AOM independent of maternal BMI. © 2011 by American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
