Dear BeingGirl Experts,
BeingGirl Experts, my friend is 11, and she has these signs of her period. They are: some (or little) pubic hair, little hair on her armpits, she has to shave her legs, she has buds, and discharge. Do you know how long it'll be 'til she gets her period?
Your friend is definitely going through puberty! When her period will arrive is still a guess. Breast development, hair under the arms and in the pubic area, a growth spurt and a white/clear vaginal discharge are all signs that one's body is maturing. She is definitely headed in the right direction; she should just hang in there.
For more information on puberty and first menstrual periods, read the My Period section on BeingGirl.com.
Hope this is helpful,
Your BeingGirl Experts
