Physical Side of Puberty

What is acne? Acne is a skin condition that most teenagers go through because of the hormonal changes that occur during puberty.  It shows up as different types of facial blemishes, including blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts.

Bras and Crop Tops As a girl's breasts mature and grow, they will need additional support.  She will need a crop top first, and then progress to a bra.

What are pads and tampons? Pads are liners that are made of absorbent material, and can be easily attached to the inside of underwear to absorb menstrual flow.  Pads are useful if you don't feel comfortable inserting a tampon into your body. A tampon is cylinder-shaped and acts like a plug when inserted into the vagina. Tampons are useful because they allow you to go swimming, while pads don't.

What is a period? A period is one of the major stages of puberty for girls.   About every 28 days, an egg is released from the ovaries and makes its way down to the uterus.  The uterus builds up a lining of blood in case the egg is fertilised. If the egg doesn't get fertilised, the lining is released from the body as blood through the vagina.  This process is called menstruation or a period.

What if I get my period at school? If you get your period at school, don't worry! Just remember that millions of other girls have been in the same situation. Simply ask your teacher if you can visit the school nurse and she will be able to help out.  You should also have a pack in your bag with some pads, and a spare pair of underwear.
