Puberty - Things You Must Know About it!

What is puberty?
Puberty is the phase in life when the body of the child matures to become an adult. This change is mainly influenced by the developing reproductive system and it makes them capable of sexual reproduction. It a progressive change and happens over a span of few years. Girls start to develop breasts and might start menstruating whereas boys notice changes in body hair growth pattern with their voices beginning to crack.
The average age for a girl to attain puberty is found to be 11, whereas in boys, it is longer and the average age is somewhere around 12. Puberty also marks the onset of emotional maturity in kids as well.
Sometimes puberty can be seen at a very young age such as 7 or 8; this is called precocious puberty. This can make it physically and mentally taxing for a child and can be a sign of health issues.

What causes puberty?
The stimulation of the hypothalamus in the brain leads to the production of a hormone called Human Gonadotropin-releasing hormones (GnRH) which signal the Pituitary Gland to produce luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). This is responsible for sexual development.
Signs that may indicate the onset of puberty in girls:

The telltale signs of puberty in girls are:

  1. Development of breasts
  2. Growth of hair in areas such as armpits and genitals
  3. A growth spurt, i.e., rapid growth in height
  4. Start of menstruation or her periods
  5. Increase in body fat in certain areas of the body
  6. Development of acne
  7. “Mature” body odour

Signs that may indicate the onset of puberty in boys:
The usual signs of puberty in boys are:

  1. Enlargement of the testicles or penis
  2. Pubic, underarm, or facial hair development
  3. Rapid height growth — a growth "spurt"
  4. Deepening of voice
  5. Acne
  6. "Mature" body odor
  7. Increase in hair growth in other parts of the body such as the arms and legs

Along with these signs and symptoms, other signs can be changes in mood. Boys and girls may develop sexual urges wherein you will notice an unexplained attraction to the opposite sex. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

The normal tablet has been offered to decrease your insulin resistance in pcos and should be continued till 6 months. Irregularity in menses should not be measured on one single episode of bleeding.

Vaginal bleeding since 6 months. Bleeding medium to heavy. Initially there were no cramps, doctor suggested texid tablet, and then primolut N, but after completing the course for both, bleeding still has not stopped, and has intensified instead, with heavy cramping. Stomach aches too much. Kindly help. I have finished the 21 day dose of primolut 2 days back and since then, the bleeding had intensified a lot along with constant stomach cramps.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. As you have diabetes before pregnancy, it is essential to control it strictly with Insulin as being done now. Ideally blood glucose has to be maintained between 90 to 120 mg all through the day. (Fasting and PP). Your fasting looks good. What may be needed is to increase the Insulin dose pre lunch and Pre dinner by about 2 units. You will have to monitor glucose at least 4 to 6 times a day. Maintain a proper chart of Insulin dose and glucose level. Complications of uncontrolled diabetes are many on pregnancy. Major problems are improper growth of the baby, macrosomia (big baby over 3.5 kgs), unpleasant out comes of pregnancy like miss carriage. If you have any doubts please come back. Thanks.

Tea Bags Are Not Just For Tea - 5 Interesting Benefits You Never Thought of!

Tea is known for many beneficial properties that it contains. Whether it is black tea, green tea, white tea or any other kind of tea, there are numerous health, home and cosmetic benefits attached to tea. Tea bags once used do not necessarily need be thrown in the trash once they have been dunked and seeped into the boiling water and milk, if you are using any. There are a number of uses which one can derive easily from these tea bags so that one can get glowing skin and varied other health benefits. Read on to know more about the hidden benefits of these tea bags!

  1. Tea bags for your eyes: The number of antioxidants present in tea makes it ideal when it comes to banishing those under eye bags and dark circles. You could freeze these tea bags in the freezer after you use them and then press them onto your eyes for a few minutes the next day. This will help in visibly lightening the area and clearing the bags that may have formed under the eyes due to long hours spent working and other factors like stress.
  2. Tea bags for food flavouring: You can use these tea bags to flavor various dishes as well. That’s right this can be used as a robust condiment with pasta, grains and chicken. You can use these tea bags in the water which will be used to boil grains and pasta so that the flavor can get infused in these ingredients. You can use flavored tea bags like chamomile and cinnamon to make a difference to the dish that you are preparing.
  3. Tea bags in the garden: Whether you have a large garden, a small patch or a few pots that grow herbs and other smaller flowers and vegetables, you can easily use tea bags in the water that you use for watering these plants. This will help in preventing the onset of any kind of fungal infection as far as the plants go. You can also use these bags as ingredients for your comps bins so that you have natural fertilizer containing the rich goodness of tea as well.
  4. Tea bags to deal with odours: Tea bags can be placed in muslin bags and hung from various rods and placed in corners, to act as a deodourising agent. You can also place these tea bags inside the refrigerator so that you eliminate the various scents and odors that are not too pleasant.
  5. Tea bags for cleaning: You can also use these tea bags to clean your rugs and carpets. These can be frozen before they are opened and the dried tea leaves can be spread over the various stains before being brushed away. The stains will also lighten gradually. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Hi lybrate-user. On an average 9th to 21st day of a period are fertile and pregnancy is possible. However now it's too late for an emergency contraceptive in your case. I would suggest you wait for her period and if it gets delayed by a week, do a pregnancy test and confirm.

It could be due to exhaustion. Utility is always reduced if number of times we consume anything. Better is not to focus only in doing sex. But some time give to your body too. At lease give 1 hour in morning or evening in exercising or yoga. Keep healthy diet. Salads etc. Everything will go right.

Always keep the date of your last menstrual period as guide n not the expected date. Because hormonal changes inside the body may alter the date.

For protection, you have to do sexual intercourse of safe days which are just after the periods & just before the peroids. At these days, the chances of pregnancy is very less.

Hi, pelvic tuberculosis is one of the reason for the scanty flow during periods and also it can cause some delay in conception. Can understand your worry. You may require help. But it is not that you cannot conceive. You can. Please consult a good infertility specialist.
