Lebanon: Adolescents and Puberty

Mona Fayed

Abstract


Puberty is defined as the period when sexual maturity is achieved. This maturity does not take place over night; it is a gradual process that lasts a relatively long period of time. Biological maturity is reached upon ovulation for girls and with the discharge of semen for boys. Puberty is not over when one is able to perform his/her reproductive duties; it is a huge transformation that lasts for quite some time and involves the whole body and person.


Keywords
