ABSTRACT
Puberty is the stage when girls and boys mature sexually. The age of puberty on average is between 10 and 13 years for girls, and between 11 and 15 years for boys. A year or so after puberty a girl begins her menarche or menstrual period. For a boy during puberty, his testes grow and hair sprouts on his face, under his arms and around the genitals.
