hey there. estrogen is released during puberty...theres not too much you can do to force it. though Birth Control pills usually help to release estrogen and foods with natural estrogen like apples, carrots and high-soy foods help too. but it all depends on your genetics as to how your body will react to it all. im on birth control and i grew 1/2 a cup size...but that's it.

How does the growth of girls differ from the growth of boys during Puberty?

Girls have a different hormone controlling their growth from boys. Boys have Testosterone and girls have Estrogen. Girls breasts and hips grow, they start their menarche and begin periods, whilst boys genitals develop and they grow more muscles than girls.

What causes sore swollen nipples in a boy age 11?

Males and females make both female and male hormones. The ratio we make depends on our sex. Males make more testosterone than females and females make more estrogen than males. When puberty starts, production of both increases with the dominant one really increasing. Because of this, when a boy starts puberty he also increases his estrogen production. In many boys (about 20%) this causes a temporary growth of breast tissue, a condition called gynecomastia. Nipples will swell, they become more sensitive, they might even get actual breast growth. Fortunately, it's temporary and usually doesn't last more than a year. When testosterone production is at its peak its ratio to estrogen is much higher and the breast symptoms go away. It's the same reason why older women sometimes begin to grow facial hair (estrogen production drops and the ratio is closer), and men have less facial and body hair (testosterone production drops and the ratio is closer).
