Puberty in Girls

Puberty is the time during which your body grows from that of a child to that of an adult. Your body changes in many ways. Puberty is also the time when you will start having menstrual periods.

Changes in your body:
  • You get taller.
  • Your hips get wider.
  • Your breasts grow.
  • You grow hair in new places.
  • You start having periods.
While all of these physical changes are taking place, your emotions and feelings might change too. It’s not always easy to go through so many changes so quickly. Puberty can be exciting, confusing, scary, or no big deal - every girl has her own reaction, and each reaction is perfectly normal.

Does this ever happen to you?
  • Your body seems to look different every week.
  • Your feelings seem to change suddenly for no reason.
  • You spend more time with new friends than with old ones.
So, How long does puberty last?

Puberty generally starts some time between the ages of 8 and 11. For some girls, it can last just a few years. For other girls, it can last 5 years or longer. Every girl is unique and will go through puberty in her own way.
