Hello Aminah,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

One of the characteristics of secondary sexual development in women can be seen from breast changes. Women's breasts that were initially small and flat in childhood, after entering puberty (which ranges from 10 to 18 years old) generally get bigger and more prominent because there is a lot of fat, muscle, and mammary glands deposited in it. Not only that, the breasts will become more sensitive so it is easy to feel itchy or painful, especially when experiencing stimulation, such as touch, friction, or pressure.


Of course, the speed at which these secondary sexual development characteristics emerge can vary from woman to woman. In general, if you experience other secondary sexual development characteristics, such as menstruation, enlargement of pelvic size, fine hair growing around the genitals, and so on, your condition may still be classified as normal.


Don't worry too much. In order for your body to grow and develop as it should, support it by consuming a variety of nutritious foods and drinks, including meat, poultry, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, milk, nuts, and so on. Exercise regularly, get enough sleep, not too many thoughts, and not too tired to indulge. Avoid the habit of consuming fast food and excessive preservatives. Also maintain your weight so that it is always ideal. With a healthy lifestyle like this, hormonal conditions in your body are expected to be maintained with a good balance, and the characteristics of secondary sexual development can appear as they should.


If until the age of 18 years or more you do not find significant changes in the breasts and fine hairs on your body, or if your menstrual patterns do not go regularly in this time span, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician for more evaluation deep. It is feared, your condition occurs related to hormonal balance disorders, thyroid gland or pituitary disorders, genetic disorders, chronic diseases, or other conditions that affect the development of your secondary sexual organs. If this is true that underlies your complaint, of course further handling is needed to resolve it.


Hope this helps ...
