Responses: 142



I'm 11 I have every one of the signs to puberty but no period. It has been going on for a year.

It's Difficult

I'm 10 yrs. old and I have already hit puberty. My friend is 11 and she is super worried that she is odd cause a lot of girls in our grade have already hit puberty and there are only a few girls left. But it's totally normal for her not to have hit puberty yet. So girls who are only 11 and complaining is all right the later you hit puberty the better, it's not all fun and games!!!

I'm 11, I have pubic hair, I shave (under arms), have little lumps and puffy nipples, but still no period! When will it come, I'm really nervous.

No period

I've got pubic hair, barely any armpit hair, size 28 A boobs, mood swings and no periods.

I'm 10 turning 11 in October and I have almost all the signs: boobs, hair except under armpit, and discharge I think. My mom didn't start until she was 16.

Everyone is Different

If you haven't gone through puberty it's ok, everyone starts at a different age. I started growing pubic hairs at age 10/11 and I got my first period like 2 weeks before I turned 12, I have noticed breast growth too. But if you haven't gone through it, it's ok don't worry

I'm 14 going on 15 and still no period.. I have hair and breasts (B cup) but not really any discharge. I'm currently in 8th but starting 9th in a couple of months. My mom didn't start till going into 9th grade so I hope this is why..
