Sickle cell hemoglobinopathy has emerged as a major public health problem in the tropical countries of the world including India. This paper deals with the age at menarche and first conception of women in relation to sickle cell genotypes. The mean age at menarche was slightly higher in sickle cell affected girls compared to controls. The delay in onset of menarche affects the age at first conception of the sickle cell afflicted individuals.
