What's Normal - Breast Facts

A girl's breasts continue to grow well into their late teens. Often during this time, your breasts will grow at different rates. Sometimes full development isn't reached until you are in your early twenties. Breast growth is often hereditary so chances are your sister, mom or grandma has experienced the same thing when they were your age. Talk to a female, family member and they should be able to put your mind at ease about your breasts. If you're not comfortable talking about this with your family, but want the 411 on what's going on with your bod, stop in at your doctor's office or local drop-in clinic for a quick exam.

The "Dimples" On Your Breasts

As for the "dimples," they could be a number of things. First, you could have inverted nipples, which just means that the nipple faces inward, rather than outward. Some women's nipples only stay inverted during the time their breasts are growing, while others live their entire lives with inverted nipples - either way, it's entirely healthy and normal. More likely though, you are talking about Montgomery glands. These appear like small bumps around your nipple and are there to secrete an oily substance to protect your breasts when you breast feed. If you still have concerns, you can ask a trusted doc or fam member about that too.

Breast Quick Facts

  • Differential development is the medical term
  • 40 % of all women experience breasts that are different sizes
  • Exercise and diet won't help your breasts grow faster or even them out.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
