What are the step-by-step changes occurring in an adolescent girl during puberty?
In an adolescent girl, the beginning of the puberty can usually be expected around the age of 10-11 years.
- The first major change that the adolescent girl can observe is the enlargement of the breasts. It can look like a cone shaped organ with an apex in the nipple.
- Shortly, after the breasts develop, the girls can notice the growth of pubic (hair growing the genital areas) and armpit hairs along with the widening of their hips.
- The final stage of the puberty is the onset of the menstruation, wherein the sexually mature girl releases a considerable amount of vaginal blood and tissue on a monthly basis.
