    What’s the worst thing about puberty?

    A recent survey suggests getting your first period is still something girls are embarrassed about – so it’s time to banish the shame. The Surgery this week is all about how to survive the changes that come with puberty, whatever your gender.

    Where did you learn about how your body works? How well did you handle puberty? How did your development change how you were treated?

    Share your experiences and tune in to Radio 1 on Wednesday 22nd March at 9pm for some straight talking advice and the facts on going through puberty.

    • Random erections.
    • The social obligation to be attractive or else be shunned.
    • The cruelty of other people who can't handle their hormonal emotions.
    • Having a sex drive - life was so much simpler without it.

    Periods.

    My anxiety is at extreme levels during this time, I don't leave the house at all, even if I have to go sixth form. Mood swings are just awful. I try and avoid speaking to people during these 5 days so that I don't irritate anyone, as I've noticed I've angered many people with my shifty moods during these times.

    When teachers don't let you go to the toilet until you explain the ins and outs of what's going on "downstairs" and they get grossed out and let you leave.

    Periods.

    I overheard a Year 7 girl tell her mates the other day that she couldn't wait to have her period. I was just thinking how much she'll hate it after a very short while.

    I'm quite lucky that puberty was a breeze for me. I knew all about the birds and the bees, periods and body changes since my mum was very open about those topics and it wasn't a taboo subject so I always felt very informed.

    The worst part though was probably the mood swings for me.
