I am 18 and I look more like 13. I started puberty maybe a year ago and it just stopped. Why do I look young? Is it possible to speed up puberty?

Time for consult: Any male that has not had obvious pubertal changes by 14 and is not then progressing thru puberty should be evaluated by a pediatric endocrinologist. Your PCP may be able to start the process with bone age studies and blood tests while you wait to get in. Your complete hormonal system needs a checkup, and the issue of what if any supplemental hormones can be determined at that time. ...Read more

I am 17 male. My puberty started at 15 and i still look like a small child. How can i speed up puberty process?

Nothing can rush it: You can not rush puberty. If your father went through puberty late you probably will too. At this stage I would at least see your pediatrician to determine if your growth is ok. They may order blood tests, a wrist xray, or make a referral depending on how your previous growth was. ...Read more

Can eating good and more and weight lifting speed up puberty and growth spurt?

Not necessarily: Bad nutrition and lack of exercise can impair growth, while good nutrition and moderate exercise permits you to grow to your potential height. Extra weight lifting may increase muscle mass but it will not increase the rate of puberty or final height. Performance enhancing supplements have no benefit either, except to give you extra acne and similar side effects. ...Read more

Is there a method to speed up growth during puberty or push a child's first period for later in time without pills?

Is there a method to speed up growth during puberty or push a child's first period for later in time without pills?

Not really: If a kid has a poor diet or poor sleep habits, correcting them can help things along. Pills would not be any real benefit, as the hormones they contain are broken down during digestion. Rarely, an endocrinologist can plan a short term of hormone injections that could push a kid to develop faster. ...Read more

As a 16 year old man, would testosterone speed up my physical development during puberty?

No: Unless you have a deficiency, it shouldn't. And a true abscence would lead to non-formation of male genitalia. The presence of testosterone should be pretty clear with the deeper voice, facial hair, acne, sex drive. Let your body do it safely on its own. Low testosterone is typically diagnosed in older men, and people who previously used so many Anabolic steroids their body shut down production. ...Read more

Do testosterone levels relate to overall penis growth during puberty or just the speed of growth?

Do testosterone levels relate to overall penis growth during puberty or just the speed of growth?

Penile size is: largely dependent on genetics, and not on specific testosterone levels. The onset of puberty for boys is quite variable, but once the testicles start to make testosterone, the speed of growth of the penis seems to be fairly consistent from boy to boy and takes about 3 years from onset of growth. ...Read more

How can i speed up puberty naturally? I'm 16 & male. Im 5'2 and weigh115 lb. I've started drinking excess milk, vitamin supplements , and exercising .

How can i speed up puberty naturally? I'm 16 & male. Im 5'2 and weigh115 lb. I've started drinking excess milk, vitamin supplements , and exercising .

See pediatrician.: Drinking an abundance of milk and vitamin pills won't help. There is no way to "speed up" puberty naturally. However, if you have a hormonal imbalance, a pediatrician will be able to determine if you have delayed puberty for a reason. If one of your hormones is low, it can be supplemented medically. Once you fully enter puberty, your height will likely increase. ...Read more

Can frequent masturbation cause puberty to occur?

When i masturbate it takes me more than 2 hours to orgasm.  Can i  do to speed up the process because i feel like I am sick or something?

Learning Sexuality: This question may be best answered by a sex therapist. It is abnormal and you may need some instructions or exercises to get to a more normal sexual experience. You may want to also read one or more of the many sex guides that are available such as "the joy of sex". I often advise my female patients to take ownership of their sexuality and their bodies with the book: "our bodies our selves". ...Read more

Is masturbation normal during puberty and will it delay puberty ?

Is masturbation normal during puberty and will it delay puberty ?

Yes and No: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage eyes. ...Read more

My 11 year old son has been masturbating a lot late my and, it seems that he told me his penis can't get erections anymore. Is there a way to cure this? He hasn't hit puberty yet.

My 11 year old son has been masturbating a lot late my and, it seems that he told me his penis can't get erections anymore. Is there a way to cure this? He hasn't hit puberty yet.

Masturbation: It is normal for boys around 11 or 12 to touch themselves or masturbate almost to orgasm. Actual ejaculation does not occur until one to two years after puberty at about the time pubic hair begins to grow at about the age of 13. I would not worry about this now. It is important not to make a big issue out of this or make him feel ashamed. ...Read more

Masturbation can cause heart problems? When i masturbate I have noticed that my heart tends to speed up a lot and even skip a beat sometimes. Is this a serious problem that I should be worried about? I'm a 17 year old male.

Masturbation can cause heart problems? When i masturbate I have noticed that my heart tends to speed up a lot and even skip a beat sometimes.  Is this a serious problem that I should be worried about? I'm a 17 year old male.

Probably fine: It's normal for masturbation to cause rapid heart rate, and the occasional skipped beat when it's going that fast. The sympathetic nervous system is activated, essentially the fight or flight response. Hormones are kicked into gear to get that going, and those drive the heart as well. Unless you have documented heart disease, at 17 you should be fine. ...Read more
