Biological Changes – Hormones & Sex Organs

Puberty is scary word. It is often misunderstood or glanced over during school. To put it simply, it’s the age in which your body begins to produce certain hormones that will change the human body. It begins to transition from children to men and women. This normally occurs between the ages between 12 and 14. However, it’s not unusual for it to begin earlier or later.

It all starts when your brain sends a signal to begin production of a special hormone. This hormone is named gonadotropin-releasing hormone or GnRH for short.

It then proceeds to go to work on all different types of aspects of the male and female body. If you’d like to learn more in-depth about the process we suggest checking here.
