Hi, and welcome to Ask Alex.  

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for reaching out and trusting us with what’s going on for you at the moment. 

What you are going through is completely normal and something that every young person experiences. Puberty usually starts around the age of 9 or 10 but this will be different for everyone.  Both male and female bodies will experience growth spurts, hormonal changes, mood changes, acne, pubic and underarm hair growth.  Boys will experience penis and testes growth and a deepening of their voice. Girls will start to menstruate; breast swell and hips widen.  All these changes don’t happen all at once, and the timing will be different for everyone.  It’s important to know that you are not alone.  As you continue to grow and notice the different changes in your body, you will have more questions. Do you have a trusted adult such as an older sibling, uncle, aunt, parents, or teacher that you would feel comfortable talking to about these changes and feelings? It may feel embarrassing talking about these changes, but you do have the right to information and support.  

Sometimes, it might feel a bit awkward talking to people you know about puberty so remember, Childline is always here to listen to you, and we would never judge anything you say. We have our online chat services at, or our phone service on 1800 66 66 66. All these services are available 24/7 and are completely free and confidential. We would be delighted to hear from you.  

Thanks again for your question! 

Take care,
