Why Puberty ?: Physically body of a child, be it a
boy or a girl; goes through developmental stages. Every individual has
different timetable of growth, which is normal. Puberty changes takes
four to six years and transform child to adult; who becomes capable
to reproduce. Few changes are common for boys and girls, while few changes
are exclusively for Girls and few other changes are exclusively for
Boys. Female alone or male alone can not reproduce. So the marriage
takes place. After marriage, husband and wife to perform reproductive
act together, which is called sexual intercourse. If wife conceives
and becomes pregnant, a child is born after nine months or so.
In Girls : The pituitary gland produces hormones that stimulate
the growth of the ovaries. The ovaries then produce the hormone Estrogen
and release it into the bloodstream. Increases in estrogen lead to breast
development, changes in the shape and contour of the body, menstruation
and maturation of the reproductive system. Estrogen sparks the release
of the hormone called progesterone., which helps the thickening of the
blood lining of the uterus.
In Boys : The pituitary gland produces hormones that
stimulate the testicles to produce the hormone testosterone. Increases
in the level of testosterone lead to the growth of body & facial
hair, the growth of the reproductive organs, the production of sperm,
the changes in the shape of the body and the change in the voice. Other
hormones, adrenal, affect the development of muscles and bones, the
growth of hair, and the changes in the skin.
Body Odor : Sweat Glands are
mainly responsible for perspiration. They are activated by temperature,
exercise as well as emotional reactions. Fear, embarrassment, romantic
feeling may also increase perspiration. A hormone called Adrenalin is
released, which will result into more sweating. If you are the anxious
or aggressive type of adolescent, you have to learn to relax and cool
yourself. The oil-like secretions from these glands are the culprits
behind acne and smelly scalps.
Natural ways to reduce body odor.

to emanate from your feet. Wear cotton socks, and wear strappy /open
shoes to keep your feet dry. One can try washing /soaking feet, before

4.4 External Anatomy of female
: During puberty, PUBIC HAIR begin to grow on the MONS PUBIS, a mound
of fatty tissues that covers & protects the pubic bone. Below the
mons lie the soft folds of skin, called the OUTER LABIA. The labia protects
the CLITORIS, a small sensitive organ located at the top of the inner
side of labia. Clitoris is the most sensitive part during the foreplay,
masturbation and orgasm. More
4.5 Internal Anatomy of female : The
reproductive system comprises of number of organs inside the body located
in the lower ABDOMEN, safely under the pubic bone. Urinary opening under
the inner labia, is connected to the URETHRA(tube that carries the urine
from the BLADDER). The vagina, a tube-shaped spongy passageway, leads
from the outside of the body to the muscular organ called UTERUS. The
narrow lower end of the uterus is called the CERVIX, has a small opening
that opens in the vagina. FALLOPIAN TUBES are connected to the right
& left sides of the uterus. A small gland called the OVARY is connected
at the end of each fallopian tube. The ovaries are about
the size of a walnut, where hundreds of tiny egg cells(OVA) are stored

4.6 The Process of Menstruation : Menstruation
is triggered by a small gland located in the base of the brain, called
the PITUITARY GLAND, which produces HORMONES (chemicals that act like
messengers, traveling in the blood to the ovaries). Inside the body,
the reproductive system begins to function. During each monthly cycle,
one of the ovaries releases an egg cell (Ova), which is smaller than
a grain of mustard. It enters the nearby fallopian tube and travels
toward the uterus that has a special lining of blood and tissue, called
the ENDOMETRIUM. More
4.7 Intercourse and fertilization (Girls) :
Wife and husband have sexual foreplay like kissing, caressing, embracing,
whispering, fondling etc. , which arouse sexual feelings. Finally during
the act of sexual intercourse, husband penetrates his penis inside the
vagina of her wife. The vagina also become moist and lubricated during

is also called reaching to climax. It is the ultimate feeling during
sexual intercourse between husband & wife. After the fantasy and
sexual foreplay, wife also get aroused. The caressing of clitoris and
Labia with the hand as well as stimulation between penis and vagina
makes the inner muscles of vagina to contract and result into sweet

adult girls do experience romantic feelings as well as fantasy. Before
marriage and even after marriage, masturbation is the act of sex play

and labia is carried out with hand or fingers, mainly by self or sometimes
by husband. Masturbation is completely normal and many females have
enjoyed, without the risk of unwanted pregnancy. Pics
4.10 Safe days to avoid Fertilization :
Young Adult girls often wonder exactly what are "Safe Days".
Stimulated by hormones from the pituitary gland, the ovaries produce
the hormone ESTROGEN, which stimulates the onset of menstruation. A
second hormone, PROGESTERONE, is produced by the ovaries when ovulation
occurs. From beginning of menstruation between 11 to 14 years(Menarche)
to cessation of menstruation between 40 to 45 years(MENOPAUSE), the
rhythmic patterns of the female cycle are controlled by these hormones.
Each time a girl gets her period, a new cycle begins. The cycle usually
lasts about 28 days, but the length of the cycle varies from 21 days
to 40 days. The menstrual cycle(M.C.) is explained as under: More
4.11 Latex Condom : Safer way to
intercourse: It is a male barrier method. Condom fits on to the Penis
tightly, similar to rubber glove fit onto the finger. It stops the sperm
to travel into the vagina after ejaculation. More
4.12 Irregular Periods
: If an Ova is fertilised by a male sperm, then the next menstruation
period will be missed. It also means that a child is conceived and wife
has become pregnant. The menstruation can only start after the delivery
of a child or termination of the pregnancy(Abortion). If the regular
period is delayed by more than 15 days, young adult girls should consult
the Gynecologist to confirm the reasons. A simple urine test for pregnancy
can be carried out to confirm the pregnancy. A change in environment
or routine or any emotional stress or illness may also upset the cycle,
causing the period to begin later or earlier than expected.
4.13 Abortion : The ova is fertilised
by sperm and pregnancy is then confirmed by the gynecologist. It must
be a good news for newly married wife. But it may be bad news for unmarried
adult girl or for the wife who wants to delay the arrival of child or
for the wife who already have enough children. In such case, gynecologist
will advise to go for early abortion of Fetus(unborn child), before
it grows large and may require major surgery subsequently.
4.14 Vaginal Secretions : Young adult
girls may have sexual fantasy, which may induce the hormones to release
sticky liquid in the vagina. (The same liquid helps to lubricate the
vagina during intercourse.) The thick liquid may stain the crotch of
panty, as it comes out after sometime. Girls may unnecessarily worry
about the normal vaginal discharge /secretion. After menstruation, the
discharge may appear as a sticky white or clear substance. Around the
time of ovulation, it becomes more abundant and slippery in appearance.
Vaginal secretion that is excessive or discolored, that has an unusually
strong or bad odor, and/or that is accompanied by burning, itching,
or irritation may indicate that a problem/ infection exists. She should
tell see a gynecologist.
4.15 Personal Hygiene Teenage Girls
: More careful attention to personal cleanliness during menstruation
will contribute to a girl's comfort and confidence. Once menstruation
begins, the production of oil and perspiration may increase during the
days before the period is due. The following tips can be helpful as
girls begin to develop personal care habits:
==> Girls should gently cleanse the external genitalia
( mons, labia & clitoris) with soft soap & water as part of
their daily bathing to help eliminate odor.
==> After each toilet use, girls should wash / wipe the anus from
front to back to avoid the spread of bacteria from the anus to the vulva.
==> Girls should wash their hands before and after using the bathroom
and whenever changing menstrual cloth/pad.
==> Panties should be changed daily. Cotton panties or panties with
a cotton crotch are recommended because of cotton's superior absorbency.
==> The menstrual stain should be avoided on dress / panty. If panty
get stained during menstruation, presoaking in cold water will help
loosen stains. Girls can also keep separate set of panties for menstruation
==> Girls should change sanitary pads as often as needed, to feel
comfortable and to prevent odor from forming to high level. Odor develops
when the menstrual flow leaves the body and comes in contact with air.
==> Girls should wrap pads in toilet paper/old news paper & put
in the wastebasket.
==> Girls should carry at least one sanitary cloth/pad when they
are expecting their period
