I Don T Grow Armpit Hair
Nothing: Hair growth is genetically determined.Get a more detailed answer ›
Puberty: Boys develop facial, axillary and genital hair when they go through puberty. The timing depends on many factors we don't understand including genetics so typically boys will do what their fathers did. However there seems to be a trend toward earlier puberty these days. We do not know why but I suspect some hormonal influences from the foods we eat or our environment. ...Read more
I'm 23 y.o I have very minimal armpit hair. I want to grow armpit hair. What can be done or are there any medicines that might help. Thanks.
We're all different: Some people don't have much body hair at all. It's the way God made us -everyone's unique. Many people dislike having armpit hair -as it can lead to odor etc. In ur case, I think a hormonal work-up might be in order if there are other findings of hormonal imbalance. A good family history can help - i.e. do others in the family have little armpit hair? I think any treatments would depend on cause ...Read more
Could plucking your armpit hairs make them grow slower? Would they eventually thin out and stop growing?
Unfortunately not: That would be s wonderful thing for lots of people if only it would work that way. Laser hair removal is about the closest thing you will get to stoping the hair from not coming back. ...Read more

I'm 18 and don't have a lot of facial hair, my genitals haven't seem to grow much. My voice has changed and I have armpit hair tho. Low testosterone?
How's it working?: If you're horny like other guys your age, and are having erections and ejaculations like they are, then things are going to be fine. Around 5% of men never get chest or good facial hair. Mr. Newman (photo), considered the best-looking male specimen of his age, never complained. If you're not having an ejaculation at least every few days, get with your personal physician now. ...Read more

Don't do anything: Leave it alone- if it was meant to be for you to have alot of hair in your armpits, you would. It might come in on its own, or having less hair in your pits doesn't make you less of a man. ...Read more

Other less common causes. Recommend you talk to your parents about seeing a pediatric endocrinologist for proper evaluation. ...Read more

You are okay...: Glad to see you do well in developing secondary sex characteristics as described since physical growth will naturally stop soon after reaching adulthood as predetermined by genetic codes - for men, roughly at 18. So, don't worry and enjoy your youth and teens to unfold your life in decades to come. ...Read more
Hi, I'm 18 and I am very concerned about me penis size and voice. I am covered in hair (face, legs, pubes) but cannot grow armpit hair. My voice is still high also. My penis is about 1" flaccid and about 4.5" erect. Am I just a very late bloomer or shoul
A Fine Penis:
I had a girlfriend who loved me for my "versatile" penis. Don't get hung up on it, they love them all. If someone dumps you just for a larger guy, you don't want her anyway.
If concerned about endocrine status, start with a family Doc, who you should have anyway. There's a big normal range, so don't worry until you have a complete workup and a Dr. Tells you to worry, which seems unlikely. ...Read more
No: Different parts of body have different % and duration of hair follicles in the growth phase (anagen). In general the rate of anagen is proportional to length of the hair. In other words, people who have difficulty growing long hair on their scalp have a shorter anagen. Normal anagen duration: scalp 2-6 yrs, eyebrows 4-8 wks, beard/chin 1 yr, armpits 4 months etc.. ...Read more
My penis is 5 inches since I was 13 years old and I am now 17 and 6 month I barely have arm hair and my penis hasn't grown since. Will it grow anymore?
Possibly: You may have another growth spurt, but even if you don't your size is completely normal as is. Penis size varies greatly. Honestly when it comes down to pleasing your partner it is not about size. It is about being thoughtful, caring, and giving. Check in with your partner about how they are feeling and what feels good for them. That's what counts! Also masturbating can NOT affect size! ...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.
