Teen health directory

Teen health is affected by a wide range of physical, mental, and social health issues. Physical issues for teen girls include: puberty changes; period pains; mood swings; spots; breast size; body odour; weight gain; and sexual health. Issues for teen boys include puberty changes; weight concerns; acne; penis size; man boobs; body odour; and sexual health. Psychological pressure is high for teens, from anxiety and exam stress, to peer pressure and relationship problems. This can feed into larger social health issues like bullying, ADHD, eating disorders, safe sex, teen pregnancy, sexual orientation, STIs, smoking, binge drinking, and drug abuse.
