Puberty

You’ll Start Noticing A Lot More Body Hair

Growing pubic hair is usually the second most noticeable change in your body. Short, curly hairs will begin to develop in your pubic area and will slowly get thicker and more full.  Hair will also start growing under your arms and faster on your legs. Don’t be freaked out by it — it’s really easy to shave it all off.

You’ll Probably Gain a Little Weight

Bye, bye baby fat; hello new womanly curves. The lower half of your pelvis and hips will start to grow in order to widen your birth canal. Your body will also start distributing fat in different ways. A gURL’s body usually becomes softer and more shapely, as your hips get wider, your waist gets smaller, and your breasts develop. It’s really easy (and normal) for a gURL to gain weight during this time.

Your Vagina Is Going To Look a Different 

Your genitals also change and grow during puberty. You’ll notice that the lips of your vagina will start growing and the color will change to a duller shade of pink. Inside, your uterus will be growing.
