3 PUBERTYPuberty- a series of emotional and physical changes that both males and females experience when their bodies begin to maturePituitary gland- the gland that releases hormones and, when triggered by puberty, releases testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen (male and female sex hormones) in larger amounts creating several different maturations in males in femalesFemales experience puberty from around ages 10-14Males experience puberty from around ages 12-16
4 Female Anatomy: Changes during Puberty Increase in heightIncrease in breast sizeHair on underarms and pubic areaIncrease in perspirationThicker/darker hair on legsWidening of hipsIncrease in reproductive organ sizeMenstrual periods begin
5 Female AnatomyEstrogen- a female sex hormone that is released in greater amounts beginning at puberty and causes maturationProgesterone- a female sex hormone that is released in greater amounts during pregnancyEgg/ovum/ova- the female sex cell produced by the ovariesMenstrual cycle- the 28 day cycle that females experience including ovulation and menstruationMenstruation (period)- the release of an unfertilized egg along with the unneeded lining of the uterus; usually lasting 3-7 days about every monthOvulation- the release of a matured egg from the ovaries; about 14 days after menstruation
6 Male Anatomy: Changes during Puberty Increase in heightIncrease in muscle massIncrease in perspirationHair on underarms and pubic areaThicker/darker hair all over bodyIncrease in reproductive organ sizeVoice begins to deepen
7 Male Anatomy Sperm- the male sex cell Testosterone- the male sex hormone which is released in larger amounts beginning at puberty and resulting in maturation in males
9 Dealing with Puberty changes Acne begins to occur during puberty. This is something that can be treated with daily showers and washing your face regularly. Over-washing may make it worse! If it is more severe, products with benzoyl peroxide may be helpful.Deodorant/antiperspirant- masks and prevents sweating from the arm pits. Helps a person smell better and feel more comfortableShaving- girls often begin to shave their legs with the onset of more leg hair; however it is a choice that should often times be discussed with their mother/family before to ensure safety
