Adolescents between the ages of 9 and 14 have probably started to experience puberty, or the changes that happen when one’s body changes from a child to a young adult. Then again, you they not have. Either way, there is nothing to worry about.
Puberty in girls can start as early as age 8 and as late as 13 or 14, but eventually everyone goes through it! Beginning menstruation, often called getting your period, is a normal part of going through puberty for girls. This video can help young people to understand this process and parents and guardians to start the conversation about Menstruation.
