Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A Girl's Guide by JoAnn Loulan and Bonnie Worthen, first published in 1979 and newly revised and updated, thoroughly covers questions about puberty and menstruation. The authors emphasize the positive (e.g., "Being comfortable with your own body is important") and use diagrams to familiarize readers with the inner workings of their bodies, including what happens during menstruation. A question-and-answer format in the last three chapters allows girls to locate easily the information they seek. A parent's guide bound into the back suggests how to begin a conversation about puberty, what to cover, etc. A thoughtful approach for young women facing changes. ; Jan.

    This is THE book to give your daughter!

    This is absolutely the best book for your daughter. My sister gave it to me after she used it as a tool to help her daughter and I passed it to my daughter and then to my neice. It covers all those difficult questions we couldn't ask our moms. A must have for moms of daughters.

    To bubbles and help:

    Bubbles: that is perfectly normal as each girl gets hers at different times. I got mine in 5th grade and my mom got hers in 8th. Some girls dont get theirs till 16 or 17! So dont worry and enjoy your time without it while you can!
    Help: douching is actually an un-needed process and can sometimes be harmfull. A womens vagina is a self-cleaning organ that unlike our mouths gets rid of the crud in it by itself which is disposed of as discharge in your underwear ( i know, tmi right?) and the soaps in douches can cause irritation or infection, please consult your doctor before douching if you are still convinced you need to.
    Good luck,
    Iris*

    To please help me asap and if you need help from me

    You're first question: What is puberty? Puberty happens between the ages 10 and13. This happens because you are now becoming a women! Some things that happen are: stinky armpits, crying for no reason at all, mood swings, and acne which are little red wars that keep poping up on your face. Next question: What is a period? Your period happens between the ages of 11 and 14. This happens because you are becoming a women! Before your period you will go to use the toilet and what do find white gooey stuff in you underwear. This means that you will have your period about six months later. Then one day you go use the toilet and you will find blood in your underwear this answers another question that blood is called discharge. When you find white gooey stuff or blood in your underwear scream for your mom immedeitly. If you hold it till' last miniute will only things worse. Your period will last for about a month and a half. The next questions are not appropiate to be asking me so ask your mom about sex. If anyone ever needs help with puberty, periods, boys, school, or fashion I'm your girl. I will answer questions or give advice for all of those things EXCEPT FOR SEX!!!! For me to respond to you have to write @southernbravegirl and your question(s). I LOVE TIPS!!!!!!!! THANKS!!! :)

    Everything you want to know about your period right here

    First of all, im gonna tell you that i just got my period on the 9th of july, 4 days after my b-day. I turned 13. The signs that tells you your period is right around the corner, are just the basic puberty signs. AKA you grow taller, your breasts develop, you start to develop hair around your vagina (called pubic hair) and under your arms, your hair gets oily, you start to sweat a little more, and then you find discharge in your underwear. Just because you start to notice discharge, does not mean that you are going to get your period the very next day. You will just have to wait and be pacient. When your body is ready you will start your period. For the first 2-3 years after you get your period, it won't be normal. This is because your body has to get regulated into a cycle. This cycle is called the menstration cycle. That means your period has become normal.

    This a wonderful book to learn about your period. Your peroid happens when your body builds a nest for a baby, but when a baby is not there, parts of the nest break off and then you have your period. But also talk to your mom or dad about this. Another great book to buy is The Care and Keeping of You by American Girl. Good luck!!!!

    Yes if you have not got breast and hhair in different placesthat means some things wrong, but some people don't start their period untill they are 14 or 15. Also when you are started you would prombly want to start with a pad and then move up to a tampon Ask Me -Girlfriend Keke
