Another thread on stretchmarks got me thinking about puberty and stretchmarks. I often hear women say 'I got them during puberty so i must be 'prone' to them but didn't get them while pregnant' usually followed by an explanation of the cream they used that 'stopped' the stretchmarks.
I realised that i have never actually known a woman who doesn't have stretchmarks from puberty - most are so minor you can't even tell but they have at least some. I have minor ones on my bum from puberty but they are so fine you can't even really see them - i actually didn't even realise i had them until 'stretchmarks' became a hot topic in my late teens and i looked closer at my skin. None anywhere else. All my friends had them too. When i go to the beach i see most women have the thin ones on their hips.
I do have a point - is there anyone out there who doesn't have stretchmarks from puberty (i mean at all - not one one)?
I don't believe having them pre-pregnancy means you are going to get them during pregnancy either and wonder why everyone thinks it does because puberty ones seem extremely common but most women i know don't any from pregnancy or not many but everyone does from puberty (that i've known).
So i'm curious - do you have stretchmarks from puberty? and do you have them from pregnancy?
Poll included (i hope - my first time trying a poll).
