Hi is a 6 inch penis for a14 year old that has little pubic hair and has not finished  puberty big? And will it grow and how much?

Relax and stop to...: Your current 6-inch penis is long and good, and you still expect another 4-5 years to grow since physical growth comes to halt soon reaching adulthood, for men, roughly age 18, as pre-coded and decided by genetic factors. So, stop worrying about your manifesting secondary sex characteristics, give time & patience, and you will be fine most likely. More? Seek evaluation & counseling. ...Read more

Sounds like you: have it puberty. That's what pubic hair is all about. You probably have a deeper voice, emerging facial hair, broadening shoulders, elongation of limbs and facial bones, etc. A larger testicle isn't by itself such a big deal, unless it is painful, or causes dysfunction. But a check with your pediatrician wouldn't hurt. ...Read more
