Puberty is a time full of exciting changes. It’s when you transition from a child into an adult. Though it’s an exciting time, you may be wondering when puberty ends. When does puberty end for girls?
Puberty ends for girls about 5 to 6 years after it starts. Puberty starts for most girls between the ages 8 and 10. This means that puberty ends for girls between the ages 14 and 16. But don’t worry if you’re a late bloomer! It’s typical to start puberty any time before age 13. Of course, this also means you’ll end puberty a little later.
However, these are pretty big ranges. When puberty ends for girls depends a lot on the individual. Each girl is different and unique. Things like genetics (ask other female members of the family what they experienced during puberty) and environment have an impact on when puberty starts and stops. When will I know when I’ve started puberty?
There are a few signs to look out for that signal when girls hit puberty. The first is usually the development of breast buds, small mounds of flesh under the nipple. Breast buds can be very sensitive when they’re growing. Many girls prefer to wear soft, comfortable fabrics during this time to avoid any additional irritation. It may be time to start wearing a bra. Visit a shop for a fitting to determine what size bra works best for you. And don’t forget to have fun! Bras come in lots of fun colours and designs.
Breast buds will continue growing into fully formed breasts. Breast development continues until age 17 or 18, even after the end of puberty.What physical changes happen during puberty?
Puberty is also a time of physical growth. Girls grow taller, often gaining 5 to 9 cm a year. Girls reach their adult height by the end of puberty.
By the end of puberty, girls will have grown pubic hair, developed their own unique body odour, grown curves, developed vaginal discharge, and started menstruating, too.
Menstruation means that girls will learn how to use sanitary towels for protection during their period. ALWAYS Ultra are a great choice because they are thin and flexible, while providing up to 8 hours of leakage protection with an absorbent gel core for a clean, fresh feeling.
