What Happens During Puberty?

Many different things happen during puberty, the first thing that happens is your brain releases a hormone called gonadotropin-releasing hormone, when that hormone reaches your pituitary gland, it sends other hormones to certain body parts. In a guy, these hormones begin the production of testosterone, and in a girl they stimulate the ovaries to begin producing another hormone called estrogen. Both guys and girls will also notice their bodies changing shape, as they begin to look more like adults, and less like children. For more information see here:
