Proud To Be a Women
Yes! You have entered puberty. It is a natural phenomenon, which all girls go through, and now is your time.
When you enter the age of say 9 or 10 some physical and mental changes start taking place in your body. You don’t need to feel embarrassed or shy about these changes. All girls go through them and it’s about time you did too.
Understanding Yourself Better
Once you enter puberty certain hormones (estrogen and progesterone) are released by your body. These hormones work upon your body and bring about physical changes in you which are:
– Increase in height
– Broadening of hips
– Better defined waist line
– Development of hair in different body areas which includes underarms, pubic area and legs
– Start of periods (menstruation)
