Effect of hormones: Pubic hair development in girls is caused by increasing levels of androgens, one of the types of hormones that increase in puberty. This normally occurs between 10 and 12 years of age, but can be a little later or earlier. If a girl has pubic hair much earlier or not till much later, a doctor should examine the child to check for any medical problems causing this. ...Read more
Andrenarche: This is a sign of the output of the adrenal glands rather than the hormones of puberty. It can be seen as early as 6.5 yrs and accompanied by underarm odor. The hair is thin and silky. If there are no other signs of puberty, ie. Breast buds or an accelerated growth rate, this can be discussed when you are next in the docs office. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Around 10-15, but...: Most males begin pubic hair growth at around age 10-15, but widely varying among them and surely not accompanying itch, which needs to be checked for its cause by reviewing history stressing its specifics, relevance, & sequence of events + findings of physcial exam at least.

Lots of factors: Puberty is measured in males by more than pubic hair. Testicular & phallic size, muscle mass, facial & abdominal hair all are signs of a maturing male. Your genetics also play a powerful role in when you go through puberty & how fast you do it. Genes also determine how hirsute (hairy) you will be. Remember, men can grow, not only in size, but in secondary sex characteristics, until 21 yo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Monitor closely for rapid progression. If this occurs , consult your pediatrician to see if intervention is warranted. ...Read more

My pubic hair turning white am only 28 this is because of ageing or some other problem please help .
Not sure: I assume that the hair on your head is not turning grey. Did you look at the color of your skin in the pubic area where the hair is grey? Is it white in color compare to your normal skin? If that is true you may have vitiligo which is the loss of pigment in your skin and hair. If that is the case you might want to see your dermatologist. ...Read more
Pubic hair disorder? Multiple hairs growing out of each follicle. They have black bulbs that are wet and some stick together.
Hmmm: Can not really tell what this is over the computer. Best for you to get an exam and be properly diagnosed. It may be an underlying infection or skin issue , so get an eval. Good luck. ...Read more
I began getting pubic hair at 13 (coloured) but didn't actually enter puberty until 14.5-15. I'm now 18 and still look quite young for my age???
Why can't I shave my pubic hair?! I'm a female and when I shave and the hair starts to grow it itches like crazy! Is it normal? I've been struggling..
That may be a sign: May be a sign from beyond. A sign that there is no real need nor any mandate to shave pubic hair. The more people who shave their pubic hair, the more pressure there will be upon other people to also shave their pubic hair (and lead to more cases of ingrown hairs and itchy pubises). Since there is nothing inherently abnormal about pubic hair, there is no reason to shave it off. It's just fashion. ...Read more
How do you stop pubic hair from growing i shave like everytime i see hair down there but when it grow it burns alittle and i don't like hair down there?
Kidding???: Pubic hair is a normal part of being 16. If it ever stops growing, you'll have a bigger problem. I realize that the current fashion is to look virtually pre-pubescent, but if you don't want pubic hair, you'll just have to get rid of it. I recommend trimming, not shaving. Shaving can cause serious bacterial infections. Trim carefully, when you're wide awake, sober and have a steady hand. ...Read more
JustWaitForManopause: Well, looking at your current age I'd guess for you it's maybe 50.For the normal person,like me & the rest of the(known)world they start sprouting in the earlier stages of puberty(like,9 years of age) & take maybe 2-5 years before they'd impress the seniors at summer camp,when puberty is just about ending & when the base realities of the world begin.I bet you can't wait for the nose and ear hairs! ...Read more
