I started puberty around 12. My breast begin to grow, my nipples got much bigger and stood out very much. I started growing hairy under my arms which got very noticeable and my pubic hair started growing, and when 18 came around I had a nice sized breast and nipples, thick underarm hair, and pubic hair was real thick, a full bush. I am a dark blonde on my head but my pubic hair was much darker, pretty near black.

My daughter experienced puberty at age 7, but did not grow breasts or have hair around her vagina until 13.

I started growing breasts at the age of 10. Now I'm 11 and they really hurt. I also have hair on my vagina.

I’m a boy and I’m 15, but just asking: is it normal that my nipples get bigger?
