By now, you have probably gotten your period, and
realized that a lot is going on with your body. Now
would be the time to take a more in depth look at your
REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM. While you have become more
confident, and realized that all girls go through these
changes, you will need to be sure to practice good
HYGIENE. Practicing good hygiene and feeling
confident about your new body are great tools that boost
SELF-ESTEEM. As you get older, you will also realize
that you have different feelings about the opposite sex.
You may start thinking about dating and having a steady
boyfriend. While these are all natural thoughts and
feelings, you should get the
FACTS before you go any further.
