Facts to Know
Puberty lasts for several years. It is the stage of your life
when your body is changing from the body of a child to the body
of an adult. Hormones, which are natural chemicals in your body,
are orchestrating these alterations in your body.
During puberty, one breast might grow
larger than the other; but donít worry, if there is any
difference in size nobody will be able to notice. Once your
breasts start growing, the differences will most likely be
so slight. And your breasts will even out before they are
finished developing. But if they donít, no need to worry
since many womenís breasts donít match each other
It might take a while, perhaps even a
year, for your periods to become regular every month. During
the first year, your cycle may be as short as three weeks or
as long as six weeks. Even after your periods become
regular, exercise, stress, or a change in diet could throw
it of track. If you are sexually active and skip a period,
talk to your health care provider immediately.

Teenage girls are increasingly expressing
dissatisfaction with their bodies, although more often than
not they are properly proportioned. Much of the blame is
being directed at media. This low body image among young
women is leading to an increase in the number of teenage
girls with eating disorders.
Two disorders are bulimia and anorexia nervosa. Someone with
bulimia will eat a huge amount of food and then vomit or use
laxatives to keep from gaining weight. This is also called
bingeing and purging. Someone with anorexia nervosa will
avoid food completely in fear of looking fat.
