Comfitex Teenz - Understanding Puberty

Understanding Puberty

Puberty is one of those experiences that can totally freak you out if you don’t know what to expect or do. So, let us break it down for you:

Puberty is pretty much the maturing of your body. In girls, puberty is a little more complicated than in boys since you will not only experience physical changes, but major hormonal ones too.

The biggest sign of puberty for girls is getting their period. In many cultures around the world, this signals womanhood and there may be celebrations and other traditions carried out.

Other signs include the development of breasts, growing hair on underarms and the vagina (known as pubic hair) and sprouting of annoying pimples or acne. All these changes are caused by your hormones going crazy which happens during puberty.
