Is My Body Normal (Girls)

Is my body normal Girls is a sexual wellbeing resource created by the Victorian Department for Health, to normalise all bodies and their variances. 

This includes: 

  • Physical growth 
  • Growing breasts 
  • Getting your period (Menstruation)
  • What is the vulva? 
  • Body Hair 
  • Sweat  
  • Acne 
  • Making friends with your bodies 

The information about bodies here is useful for young girls before puberty and going through all phases of puberty. 

We would like to point out that the contacts for resources on this page are created within the Australian Healthcare setting.  

Phone numbers for helplines on this page would not be useful to young people residing in the Republic of Ireland. Instead of kids helpline we would recommend Childline for counselling services for young people in the Republic of Ireland. 


At Debunking The Myths‘ sexual health education and wellbeing workshops, we know that there is a wide range of variations of our bodies. By normalising these variances, we can counteract harmful societal beauty standards, reduce body shaming, and promote acceptance and respect for diverse bodies. We also want to foster a more inclusive and empathetic approach to sexual relationships and promotes overall well-being and self-esteem.
