Breast Bud for Girls Puberty and Preteen Puberty

preteen puberty

Preteen Puberty and Breast Bud For Girls Puberty are two topics that naturally go together, but maybe you feel a little upside down or confused about it (like the girl in the picture).

You don't have to be in high school, or even middle school to start puberty. In fact, you will most likely experience some of the first signs of female puberty before you are an official teenager. It is during this time when you are almost a teenager that you are considered a "preteen." Any part of female puberty that happens before you are thirteen is called preteen puberty.

Every girl develops differently in some ways so don't expect that your body will develop at the same time or same way as some of your other friends or family. No need to worry if you start seeing changes as early as age 7 or as late as age 13, you are normal and it will all come with time. Not all girls even start preteen puberty some start to develop after they are a teenager.

For most girls puberty starts between the ages of 9-13, but for some girls it can start as early as ages 7-8. One of the first things you will notice when starting female puberty are breast bud for girls puberty. Other signs of female puberty that will likely begin to show up in the preteen years are: pubic hair, armpit hair, body odor, acne, growth spurt, and sexual feelings.

What are breast bud for girls puberty?

Breast buds are a slightly raised bump behind your nipples (A nipple is the raised nub in the middle of each breast). It may just look like a button and make your nipple stick out a little more than when you were a child. The breast bud for girls puberty contains some tissue, milk glands, fat, and muscle. The Areola, or colored ring surrounding the nipple, will also expand a little when you get breast bud for girls puberty.

Breast buds for girls puberty are the beginning stage of breast development. There are five stages of breast development from breast buds to adult sized breasts. It takes years to go through all the stages, and you likely will be in high school or college by the time they are fully developed. On average it takes three to four years for breasts to fully develop. There will be times in your life, after puberty, that your breasts may change size--like when you have a baby and are breastfeeding or if you gain weight and have more fat tissue in your chest.

Some preteen girls will start to develop earlier than others, but that does not mean they will finish developing sooner. It also does not mean that if you are an "early bloomer" that you will have bigger breasts. It is hard to judge how fast or slow your breast development will be or how big or small your breast will be when you are done developing. You will just have to wait and see, and don't worry too much about it.

Common Concerns about Breast Bud For Girls Puberty

If you are experiencing preteen puberty, you likely have many questions and concerns about your newly emerging breasts...don't worry, change can be a little scary and you may not know what to expect, but it is also exciting and fun.

Itchy, Sore, Tender, Painful Breasts

Don't be surprised if your breasts (either one or both) feel itchy, sore, tender or even painful sometimes. This is normal, and does not mean anything is wrong. When you are developing breast tissue and experiencing growth you may have some "growing pains" but it is nothing to worry about and it will not last forever. Your skin is stretching as your breasts grow and this causes some of the itchness. How your hormones react to cause the growth may cause your tissue to be tender and sometimes painful, especially if you put pressure on the area.

Uneven or Lopsided Breast Size or Growth

Another concern some girls have is that one breast is bigger than the other. Uneven breast sizes is common, especially in the beginning stages of breast bud for girls puberty. It may take six months to a year for the other to catch up after one first starts to grow. In later stages of breast development, stages 2-4 (see page on breast growth ), you may still remain noticeably lopsided but usually by the ending stage, stage 5, they should mostly even out.

Lumpy Breasts and Breast Cancer

When you first get breast bud for girls puberty it feels like a lump under you nipple. Some girls may fear that they have breast cancer. It is normal for it to feel lumpy in the beginning stages and does not mean it is breast cancer. Breast cancer usually occurs when there are lumps in fully developed breasts, not in breasts that are just beginning to grow.

Getting Your first Bra

When should you start wearing a bra? This is really up to you. Some reasons girls wear a bra are: to support the breast so they don't "jiggle,"to prevent drooping breasts, for comfort, to add shape, and just for fun.

There is no right answer to this question of when to get your first bra. They make bras small enough to accommodate breasts that are just starting to develop. You may not actually need one in the beginning stages, but instead just want one and that is okay too. Or you can wait to get one until there is more tissue there to "hold up" in later stages of development. check out the page on choosing a bra to find out more.

Other Changes that can happen during Preteen Puberty

Pubic Hair
Pubic hair growth usually starts around the same ages as breast growth, but usually happens a little bit after you first notice breast buds for girls puberty. It also happens in 5 stages like breast growth, check out the page on it below.

Acne and Oily Skin and Hair
Acne, ugghh! It is one of the most dreaded effects of female puberty. Your hormones are causing your glands to produce more oil and as a result those glands can get clogged and make a pimple.

If you are still in elementary school when this happens you may feel out of place. Once you enter middle school or high school you will see that more more of your peers are getting it too. Although it can be hard to deal with, especially at an age when you just want to fit in and be considered "hot". It can effect how you feel about yourself to have one or two or a whole face full of pimples.

Maybe you compare yourself to others and see another girl in your grade that has "perfect skin" and think to yourself "this is not fair!" What you don't know is that she may take really good care of her skin and that is why it looks so good--you can take care of your skin too so that you feel comfortable with who you are.

The other thing a lot of girls do not like dealing with during puberty, but happens to all of us, is Armpit Hair and Body Odor

Growth Spurt and a Curvier Body Shape
Did you know that most teen girls grow 23-28 cm and gain 15-55 pounds (which is about half your adult body weight) during puberty?
