Puberty

Puberty is the time when your body changes physically and emotionally from being a child to a young adult.

Your body is preparing itself to be able to reproduce.

These changes don’t happen all at once. It can happen gradually over years, and the changes are different for everyone. Exactly what they are and when they happen will vary from person to person.

Puberty starts when extra amounts of chemicals called hormones start to be produced in the body.​ The body produces the sex hormones Oestrogen, Progestogen and Testosterone, which are responsible for many different changes in the body.
