What does the app do?

The app is designed as an eBook to guide, educate and help young people through puberty by helping them to understand the changes happening to their body and the feelings that occur during puberty. The app has detailed (but appropriate) information about sex hormones, periods, erections and ejaculation, among other topics. It also offers insight into how to take care of your body, in an easy to read way.

The app is aimed at young people but may be helpful to parents or caregivers who want to find simple ways to explain or discuss puberty changes with children. For a more detailed review, see Reviews
