No how many ribs dose a young girl have? Do you form more ribs or lose ribs as you grown older?

Men and women have the same number of ribs – 12 pairs, or 24 all told. You neither lose nor gain ribs with age.

The ribs are an integral part of the thoracic spine (which is 12 vertebrae that sit between the cervical spine and the lumbar spine).

It’s a miscomprehension of the Biblical story about the creation of Eve from a rib of Adam that men would have fewer ribs than women.
