In this guide we will discuss some significant changes that occur in boys and girls in puberty. Firstly let us talk about what's puberty. Puberty is a stage in human evolution once the reproductive organs begin working. At this point, women ovulate for the first time and boys can ejaculate. Certain new changes like facial and pubic hair, enlarged breasts and genitals start to appear. Emotions and feelings also changes in this period.
Puberty occurs because of the hormonal action. It starts in the mind where the hypothalamus activates the pituitary gland to begin to produce hormones. In women, the ovaries begin to release an ovum per month inducing menstruation. From the boys, the testes begin to produce sperm.
All the changes which happen during puberty, including the enlarged genitals and breasts and growth of body hair, are due to the release of hormones. This happens at different rates and times for each person. The changes occur more quickly for a few as well as in a different sequence.
The most frequent changes in girls during puberty are breasts growth and development of pubic hair around the genitals. Hair also grows below the arms, and thighs. During puberty, girls develop a lot over a brief period of time once the adrenal gland send growth hormones around the entire body, but it changes to individuals. Girls begin to have period at roughly 13 year old. They sweat more notably under arms and around the genitals. The voice gets a little deeper and muscles get bigger. Clitoris develops and becomes more sensitive.
The most frequent changes in boys during puberty are penis growth and development of pubic hair around the genitals. Now boys have an increasing number of erections. Hair also develops under the arms and on face and legs. During puberty, testes get larger and begin to produce sperm. Voice breaks wavering between low and high notes. Boys sweat more notably around their genitals regions.
After puberty the adolescent years begin when immaturity and dependence gradually give way to adulthood and independence. It's a period of emotional stress and strain, change in sexual features and body image and higher sex interest.
