Boys- change in voice, hair growth around sex organ, increase in level of testosterone, muscle development, sexual urges.

Girls- development of breasts, development of vaginal areas, increase in level of progesterone, menstrual cycle

Girls breasts will start to grow bigger at first then menstruation will follow, They will grow pubic hair, this giving signs you have started puberty.

Boys genitals will start growing bigger, they will start growing hair under the arms and on the face above the top lip and on the chin, and pubic hair also. Their voices will break and deepen. This is just a few signs of puberty taking it's course.

Girls generally finish puberty first at around 15 - 16 years old.

Boys generally finish at around 16 - 17 years old. But for both sexes it can be slightly earlier or later as we are all different.
