More privacy please!

Part of growing up is about becoming independent and needing a bit more of your own space. We are not talking about moving out or anything, but a little privacy wouldn’t go a miss especially as you adjust to the changes which are happening to your growing body.


Puberty and girls

The first sign of puberty in girls is usually that their breasts begin to develop. It’s normal for breast buds to sometimes be very tender or for one breast to start to develop several months before the other one. Pubic hair also starts to grow, and some girls may notice more hair on their legs and arms.


Starting your periods

Signs that your period is on its way are if you’ve grown underarm and pubic hair. Typically, you’ll start your periods about 2 years after your breasts start growing and about a year after getting a white vaginal discharge. The average girl will get her first period around 12 years old, but it varies from person to person.


Coming Out

Coming out means telling someone something about yourself that isn’t immediately obvious. In relation to sexual orientation and gender identity, this means sharing with others that you are lesbian, gay, bi and/or trans (LGBT).
