We ladies start receiving confusing messages from our hormones from when we were 11 until the end of our life. For some it starts as early as 8 or 9 year old. The brains has to work extra hard to keep the balance in our behavior, character, attitude, needs and requirements.
I am not a doctor or have PHD in health science but I qualify because I am a woman to know what it does and does not ...
I think when you start messing with your own hormones, it's crazy-making.

This is when the whole thing starts .. the confused state of mind. Of course the hormone starts to take first changes in our physical growth and sexual development. Young girls will start storing fat at the right places as the hormones prepares them to blossom into young ladies.
If not properly educated or guided they may become rebels as they want to explore every urges the hormone pushes them to. This is one of the most difficult time in ones life because this is the same time they are going through 'educational development skills'
Personally parents, family and friends have to be there to support them through this phase as their desires are being controlled by hormones. The urges to explore will start burning like fire in their body. Some of us will start to explore to find an identity of our own, like belonging in a group .. 'the cutest' , 'the A student' , 'the athlete' .
Most of us have been there and should actually have experienced all those weird attractions to others, desires to look good .... .
This starts as early as 7 or 8 years of age. Especially in female, it starts with the physical changes with girls gaining on their heights which will go through their early teens.
Teenage hormones are similar to Puberty hormones where sexual development happens. At this stage the sexual feelings or desires blooms. With proper guidance and attention it will help teenagers to cope with their hormones. For most, there comes time when they can actually balance education with their hormone rushes. But, for many who are not able to cope may end up making some life-altering decisions.
This is the transition from a child to adult and it happens just at the beginning of teens. Children start by making their own decisions,tarting with small things dress they want to wear, places they want to go, tv program's they want to watch, games they want to play ..
Some may start to isolate themselves because they start to become self-conscious about their looks or their weight. They start comparing themselves with others, and some start copying or doing what the others are doing.
With a good support system their path can be defined and they can follow your recommendations. And yet, the rebel in them will also surface.
Young adult and Adult
Teenagers taking the role of deciding for themselves or being more independent in decision making. They will start experimenting and moving with older groups. Their decision making drive which is inline with them completing their high school allows they to search and plan on their future. Most want complete control of their decision and some like the nudge from their family or friends towards a path.
Here although I have put them as 2 different entities, which is Young Adult and Adult they carry almost the same hormone rushes ..
- There is one group who think of career development as priority
- Another group who think of marriage and family
- Another group who prefers simple career and family development
- Failed group
At most they will feel secure and comfortable with the choices they have made. The confused state in their hormone will only arise when they cross each others path. The first group may believe they lost something when their 'female maternal hormone' or 'biological urge' sends signal when they meet the ladies from the other 2 groups. Sames goes the other way when the second group meet someone from the first group who is successful and they start having 'identity crisis'
And then there is the society pressure which pushes our hormone to send out 'confusing messages' ... Society is good at pointing out faults of others , from weight, looks, age, marriage, children, boyfriend, . This is quite dangerous as it may drive us to depression
Failed group are a class by themselves. The young adult here either made wrong decisions or was driven to make wrong decisions or trapped.
- Wrong Decision making
I have been through the last 2 cycles and now am in this cycle. And believe me they are wild. So I understand that some hormones are produced more, some are reducing and some are confused .... Most people will start having pre menopausal symptoms (yup it starts as early as 40) because proper menopause for most is around 50+ giving it a long 10 year cycle.
Knowing this and acknowledging this allows us to be more rational in controlling every event in our life. Be it with our partner, family, friends or anyone. I have learned to keep myself occupied and entertained, without invading anyone. And yes sometimes the faucet in my eyes will involuntarily discharge liquid ... as I know I may never have a child .... But lucky me my brain can immediately take charge and I start planning my next holiday !!
In this article it was not my intention to write of the symptoms shown by individuals as it may differ from me to another and furthermore many Health Magazines have explored on them.
And here I would like to share my personal observation on why teenage girls normally rebel during their puberty. Well dear mommies ... you could possibly going through that unfamiliar hormone disorder yourself as you could be having your 'pre menopausal' hormone rush ...so please acknowledge it
Basic Understanding of Female Hormone
