What is puberty?

Between the ages of 8-15 (usually), all girls go through that life stage known as puberty. Basically, it starts with a rapid growth spurt - so you grow a few inches, your breasts bud, and then gasp - hair in new places! Finally you may notice a sticky white discharge on your underwear. It’s ok! This is just your body prepping for its first period. Once that happens, you’ve officially joined the club.
