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

While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
