Does getting the period have to do with that your breasts are full grown? I already have mine, but i am just wondering..and one more thing..must one have the period to be able to have sexual intercourse? Thanks
Starting your periods and having your breasts develop are both part of going through puberty for a girl, but that doesn't mean they're going to happen at exactly the same time. And starting your periods doesn't mean that you've completed your physical development.
If you haven't started menstruating yet, then your body hasn't reached sexual maturity and isn't going to be ready for adult sexual activities like intercourse (for example, before puberty the vagina produces little or no lubrication).
