Facts about the Physical Side of Puberty

What is acne? Acne is a skin condition that most teenagers go through during puberty. It shows up as different types of bumps.  There are differnt types of bumps, including blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts. Adolescents get acne because of the hormonal changes that come with puberty.  If your parents had acne when they were teenagers, it's more likely that you will get it, too. Under most circumstances, acne disappears almost completely by the time you are past your teenage years.

Bras and Crop Tops As a girl's breasts mature, she will need a crop top first, and them progress to a bra. This all depends on the pace she matures.

What are pads and tampons? Pads are peanut-shaped liners that are made of absorbent material. They can be used by attaching them to the bottom of your underwear. Some have extra material on the sides called wings that help hold the pad in place. Pads are also referred to as sanitary napkins. Tampons are used as another method of absorbing menstraul blood. The difference is they work from inside the vagina. A tampon is cylinder shaped and has a string coming down from the bottom. It is also made of absorbent material. Tampons are useful because they allow you to go swimming, when pads don't.

Peer PressureIt is important for you to fit in with your peers at school or around the neighbourhood. However, if you find yourself doing something just because others are doing it and it makes you feel unsafe, make sure you think twice about it.Remember that you always have the right to decide against something you don't want to do. It can be hard to say no to your friends, but this can be a critical part of staying out of trouble.Always consider what your family would say if they knew the position you were in.

What if I get my period at school? If you get your period at school, don't worry. Just remember that millions of other people have been in the same situation. In the meantime, ask your teacher if you can go and see the school nurse. She will be able to help out. Also, you should always have a pack in your bag that consists of some pads, and a spare pair of underwear.
