Hello DHS member

I was checking three variables in the BDHS 201718 dataset: age at first sex (v525), age at first cohabitation (v511), and age of the respondent at their first birth (v212). When I cross-tabbed those variables following the commands
tab v525 v212
and
tab v511 v212
, I found that some women had their first child before the first sexual intercourse or the first cohabitation.

I am not sure what those mean, but those Are there really any discrepancies in the data, or are those births that occurred before the first sexual intercourse or cohabitation illegal births?

Look forward to the DHS experts.
