How do girls go through puberty?
As girls turn into young women they will notice breast
development, hair growth, and menstruation. The first change that
the female will probably notice is the change in their breasts.
Then you should get a cupped bra. Shortly after the breast
development she will notice the beginning of pubic hair. Around 12
years old she will notice the growth of underarm hair and on their
legs; shaving may be necessary around this age. The females
menstrual period will most likely come between the ages of ten and
16 1/2. A period is when you pee blood. Once the female has her
period, her ovaries will release an egg. If this egg is fertilized
by a males sperm, the egg will turn into an embryo (developing
baby). If the egg is not fertilized, the uterus will shed it's
lining because it is not needed (this is where the menstrual blood
comes from). For both men and women, they may experience a change
in hormones that may cause their skin to become oil. This extra oil
may result in an increased amount of occasional pimples or acne.
During this time period, the female will also grow in height and
gain weight as well as form a more womanly body shape (her hips
will widen in proportion with the rest of her body's growth).
