Girlology's There's Something New About You

This book has been perfect for my 9 year old daughter. She loves the stories that lead into each chapter topic. We have read it together, and it has opened up our communication so much! Thank you for writing such an honest, accurate book that doesn't promote physical "beauty" but is all about self confidence and feeling good about body changes.

You're at that age when there is a lot going on. First bras…hair growing on your legs…changing friendships…and periods. Some of it makes you feel embarrassed, some of it makes you want to scream, and some if it makes you want to roll your eyes and crawl under a rock. Welcome to puberty.

Right now you can't imagine how any of this could be fun. But read this book and you can face the weirdness, get over the gross factor, and head into puberty with confidence and knowledge. It's definitely not a boring lecture like you hear in school. And it's not like an embarrassing little chat with your parents. It was written by two female doctors who are moms (and they're pretty funny). In addition to the advice, there are great stories about a cast of characters who are going through the same things you may be: Claire thinks she'll never develop; Lily is embarrassed to shop for her first bra; Riley is mortified when she gets her period at her dad's house; Brianna doesn't know what to say when the boys tease her; and Tess is worried about whether or not she can use a tampon so she can swim in her swim meet.

There's Something New About You will help you make sense of a very confusing time!

Girlology: You Got IT

"My 12 year old daughter started her period sooner than I expected, and I was panicked trying to find information for her that was helpful but not too clinical. You Got IT was perfect. She was reassured and said the book was "actually good.” You can’t get a better compliment than hearing that from an almost-teen!”

Girlology, known for helping teen girls understand and respect their changing bodies, now offers this ebook which provides honest, practical, and cringe-free details that girls want to know about menstruation and menstrual periods. Written by an ob-gyn and pediatrician who speak to thousands of girls each year through Girlology programs and a web community, the authors instill knowledge and confidence in a trusted voice. Read this and you'll learn why you have it, what to expect, how to handle it, how to plan for it, and where to get more information on staying awesome. You got it? You've got this!

Thanks to a second year of funding, from now to May, 2018 Always and Tampax are partnering with Girlology to help you get it... for free!

Girlology: Hang-Ups, Hook-Ups, and Holding

This is a great resource for teen girls, it answers so many questions that may be too intimidating for girls to ask their parents. I like the fact it is written by doctors, but is very much an approachable level for the younger audience. It includes many aspects about sexuality, so 9th grade seems an appropriate age (give or take a year). I have read their other two books in the series and they are excellent resources as well, but for a younger age group. Glad I purchased.

Currently sold out. Stay tuned for the revised edition.

What's up with this acne? Am I the only girl who isn't having sex? Is it OK to shave my hair down there? If I keep looking at other girls in the locker room, does that mean I'm gay? Is oral sex really sex? If I've only had oral sex, then I'm still a virgin, right? What exactly is hooking up?
