The drawings below show stages of the way the breasts develop. A girl can go through each of the five stages shown, although some girls skip some stages. Please look at each of the drawings. It is also important to read the descriptions.

Put a tick in the box to the right of the drawing that is closest to your daughter's current breast stage.

1
The nipple is raised a little in this stage. The rest of the breast is still flat
2
This is the breast bud stage. In this stage the nipple is raised more than in stage 1. The breast is a small mound. The dark area around the nipple (areola) is larger than in stage 1
3
The areola and the breast are both larger than in stage 2. The areola does not stick out away from the breast
4
The areola and the nipple make up a mound that sticks up above the shape of the breast (Note: This stage may not happen at all for some girls. Some girls develop from stage 3 to stage 5 with no stage 4)
5
This is the mature adult stage. The breasts are fully developed. Only the nipple sticks out in this stage. The areola has moved back in the general shape of the breast
6
Not sure
The drawings below show different amounts of female pubic hair. A girl can go through each of the five stages shown. Please look at each of the drawings. It is also important to read the descriptions.
