This book provides accurate, relevant, and easy-to-grasp information about puberty and menstruation. It will help prepubescent girls to prepare for their first period and enable those who have already begun their periods to better understand and cope with their monthly cycle. The appealing contemporary design (which includes a moveable wheel on the front cover that can be rotated to reveal what is happening during each day of the menstrual cycle) and down-to-earth informative text make this a book that all young women will find useful.
Organised into three sections, the first is Body Basics, a comprehensive explanation of the physiological and biological processes at work during this time. The second section, The Whole Month Day-by-Day, offers chronological details of menstruation and provides advice about how to cope with each respective phase. The Help! Section addresses the most common concerns and questions facing young women about the subject.
