Are There Hadiths That Say Aisha Had Reached Puberty?

According to the most popular English translation of Sahih al-Bukhari 476, Aisha had reached puberty before her marriage to Muhammad was consummated. According to the most popular English translation of Sunan Abu Dawud 4915, Aisha started to menstruate as she was being taken to Muhammad’s house so he could consummate the marriage to her. But is this what these hadiths actually say in the Arabic, or are Muslim translators mistranslating passages? Moreover, are Muslim scholars like Jonathan Brown, and popular da-ees like Asadullah Ali Al-Andalusi, and Muslim organizations like the Yaqeen Institute deceiving their followers? David Wood and Al Fadi investigate.
