Puberty is the transition to adulthood, when your sex organs grow and develop and your body becomes ready and able to reproduce. These changes can make you feel proud and happy, but they can also make you feel confused or embarrassed.
Puberty starts at different ages and lasts for different lengths of time for different people. It can start as early as 9 years old to as late as 13 1/2. The development sequence usually ranges from two to five years.
This is sometimes very difficult, because some of your peers may have entered and completed puberty before you have even started. There is no natural way to slow down or speed up the process, but puberty happens to everyone, so never fear, it will happen to you!
