According to the History & Headlines,  Press reports stated that Lina Medina had been menstruating since 2 or 3 years old. A medical journal reports told that she had started breast development by age 4 and her pelvis had widened by age 5.

Lina Medina has never publicly revealed the father of the child nor the circumstances of her impregnation. However, her father was arrested on suspicion of child sexual abuse but was later released due to lack of evidence.
