Puberty brings in a lot of changes to your life and to your body, please don’t be scared as you should keep

a thing in mind that you are not alone in this journey. All the women in this world, be it your mother your

aunt your sister and your teachers all went through puberty. So from that moment you will be ready to grow

as it is totally normal and your parents and dear ones will be there to take care of you. Just keep certain

things in mind and we will tell you these things and you will be all fine

1) Significant Body Growth

You will notice a major change in your body, your body parts will start growing faster

than your childhood. This sudden increase growth is known as growth spurt. Initially you

will notice your feet and hands growing, then the arm and leg bones. In a short span of

time you will become taller. There will be an increase in weight also. You will look

awkward till the other body parts start growing and your body becomes proportionate.

Don’t panic this is normal and the first change you will notice, so be prepared and buy

clothes as per your growth.

2) Development of breasts

Some will say this is like the most significant change in a girl’s body. In the beginning

you will notice little swelling under the nipples, you needn’t panick it is natural and then

slowly the breats will start growing and will get bigger and fuller. Initially you will feel

sore around the breasts, then it will be normal. From this moment onwards you may

have to wear a bra, which is required to give proper support to your breasts. Pick a bra

which fits you. An important thing to keep in mind is each and eavery girl’s bosy is

different so some may have bigger fuller breasts, whereas some may not have that so

you needn’t feel inferior as it depends on each person’s physical genetic traits. In a span

of two to 3 years breasts will be developed fully.

3) Body Hair

Well another very significant, infact the most obvious change in one’s body after

attaining puberty is hair growth in new places. The hair starts growing first in pubic area

slowly and then covers the whole area. This sometimes affects girls they panick and feel

uncomfortable but please keep it in mind it is natural and same for everybody.

4) More Sweating

Once u attain puberty your sweat glands will grow larger and so you will start sweating

more, don’t panic for this as it is natural. Start using antiperspirant or deodorant.

5) Changes in hair and skin

During puberty the pores in the skin open up and produce more oil, especially on the

face. This oil will cause acne on your faces. So you will have to wash your hair and face

more often than before. You will have to start taking care of your skin and use acne

reducing and oil control skin products. Advice again be prepared don’t panick.

6) Development of Genitals

Your genitals, or private areas, also grow and change during puberty. Your outside parts

(the vulva) are enclosed by two sets of "lips." The larger lips have hair. The inner, smaller

lips don't. These increase in size a little bit. Inside your body, the vagina is getting longer

and the uterus is getting bigger.

7) Discharge/Flow happens

This discharge happens from vagina, a clear or sometimes cloudy fluid comes out of

vagina. The body produces this fluid to moisten and cleanse the vagina. If you notice

yellow or white stains inside your underwear don’t panic it is normal and it indicates

that the menstruation will start in 6 to 18 months time. Sometime this vaginal discharge

can be white, clumpy, thick or milky, it may be due to yeast infection. If that happens

talk to your parents and consult a doctor.

8) The Very First Period

All the above said things lead you to your first period. When it starts you will not be

knowing what will happen and what to expect. The menstruation is unpredictable for

the first 2 years. It will be irregular and it is normal. It takes 1 to 2 years for your cycles to

get regularized. So be prepared in these years with all the required sanitary products.

So these above said things keep them in mind don’t take them or expect them to

happen in order. Each woman is different from another woman. They are special. So

don’t get discouraged or irritated as these things are only sure indication that you are on

the way to enter your fascinating stage of life, Being a Woman.
