Early Puberty Pubic Hair
My daughter is nine years and six months. She is 134cm tall. She is showing signs of early puberty, like growth in underarms and a few pubic hair.
A condition in which development of secondary sex characteristics (breasts, testicular enlargement) occurs before age eight in girls and age nine in boys. Often times, especially in girls, the cause is unknown and not harmful to the child. However, all children with precocious puberty should see a doctor to rule out harmful causes such as cancer. Furthermore, early puberty can stunt growth due to premature closure of the growth plates. Early detection and intervention can prevent ...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???

Hey, im 19 years old and im still not finished in puberty, I have pubic hair and I have to shave in the face from time to time, how can I speed it up?
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
Will my 6 inch penis grow to 7 inch.14 year old that has not finished puberty with little pubic hair?

I haven't hit puberty, I am 16. I have pubic hair. One of my testicles is nearly double the size of the other which scares me.?
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

Contradiction: You seem to have a normal pubertal developments. I wonder you have an unreasonable expectation regarding the size of genitalia. If you are really concerned, see your family doctor. ...Read more
How do you know if you completed puberty? Is it poss to never complete it? Have had normal periods since 13, pubic hair, etc but am pretty flat chested
Puberty and growth: In girls is mostly done by 2 years after periods start. However since breast size is so variable from person to person, it is hard to predict whether that will change much at your age. Pregnancy and change in weight can definitely affect breast size, but without either of those factors, it would be unlikely that your breasts would become significantly larger. ...Read more
I am 21. ..But I hav not started my puberty yet no growth...No pubic hair...Penis size like a child...I am suffering from hypogonadtropic hypogonadism?
Something...: Something is going on that is causing you not to produce hormones by your age that would have started your pubertal changes. You need to see an endocrinologist asap and determine first why and then what the treatment for you needs to be based on that. Don't delay any longer - you are already in your 20's. ...Read more

Puberty Takes time:
"From the time puberty starts until it is fully complete can be several years. It often takes 3 to 5 years from onset to completion. Penis size during puberty is greatly influenced by the stage of puberty." *
Give yourself some time.
Also, remember, your doctor is used to talking about these topics. I know it seems strange, but your doctor won't freak out on you, I promise.

Obesity: We are just starting to learn all of the endocrine impacts of obesity, but we are learning that peripheral adipose tissue, fat, does increase estrogen levels. This can affect fertility, testosterone levels, sex drive, and even certain types of cancer. I would agree with an evaluation by a physician and encourage you to continue in your weight loss attempts. Perhaps seek advice of a dietician. ...Read more

How would I know if I successfully completed pubertal development? Is that simply having had an occasional period and pubic hair?
Several year sequenc: Puberty takes place over a period of several years in which a number of the parts of your body change both internally and externally and you become capable of having children. There are many good books and websites on the stages of puberty. There is no sharply defined border for that and girls frequently mature before boys and attract the attention of boys early. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Puberty is a complex process involving multiple hormones and structural changes. In males the process may span from 2 to 5 years with a kids eventual height dependent more on how the bones are affected than other structures. As long as the bones have open growth plates there is room for a kid to grow taller. A bone age assessment (xray) can help gage potential for more growth. Discuss this with doc. ...Read more
My friend went in a steam room to detox and by earily the next morning started complaining of a painful lump in her pubic hair area, could this be from the steam room detox because she was fine before the detox?
Great Q. Tough A.: Ok, so this might sound gross, but places like shower and steam rooms are hot, humid, laden with germs from bare bottoms or damp towels. They are the perfect environment for organisms to grow and thrive. So I would ask about the steam room as well as the health of the person undergoing detox. An exam by a primary care physician or institutional md would be helpful. Extra pain is not a good thing ...Read more

I'm a 23 y.o. male. I am 6'2". I haven't undergone puberty. My penis has not grown at all. I also have very minimal pubic hair. Is there a treatment?
Need full eval: Any male who has not started to go through puberty by age 15 should have a full evaluation by a pediatric endocrinologist. Your local doc can call ahead to see if a pedi or adult endo would be best for your case. Hormonal and genetic studies are needed and your local doc might be able to get some started before your consultation. Treatment would depend on what is found. ...Read more
Hair and my voice is only a little deep. But I have got visibile hair growth on my legs and pubic region (a lot), what else happens in puberty?
I'm just wondering, if you start puberty (breasts, pubic hair, armpit/ leg hair etc) will you start your period?
Is it okay for a 14-year-old girl (daughter) to have developed all signs of puberty (acne, pubic hair, periods etc.) but very little breast development? All women in the family are curvy but she is very skinny as well.
Lots of variables: The final breast tissue contour and volume depends on a number of genetic and hormonal factors. Pubertal changes also may come in over <4 years or >7 depending on the kid. Some women will have a raisin on a pancake breast contour and some will have oversized melons. At 14 you can't predict final outcome but such variations in final appearance remain. ...Read more
