Consult endo or urol: Patient gave age as 100-years-old. If 17 & testes now of adult size might just be delayed puberty. Worth seeing an endocrinologist or pediatric urologist.

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

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

I am 18 with delayed puberty. Which testosterone therapy method is most effective to achieve full male development?(penis growth, facial hair ect.)

No single best way: No testosterone therapy is best for all. Each one has its pros ; cons. Can you tolerate shots? Are you allergic to adhesives? Is fertility an issue? (i'm referring to men in general) are you sure you're just delayed as opposed to some other cause? Doc who diagnosed you w/delayed puberty ie one who did complete evaluation to rule out other causes, should also discuss treatment options w/you. ...Read more

Hi. I'm a 19 years old male. I'm losing my hair due to male pattern baldness. Can finasteride halt my sexual development as i might be into late stages of puberty? Thanks.

Possibly: Absence of dihydrotestosterone (dht) and 5 Alpha reductase can cause abnormalities in male sexual development. Finisteride works by supressing one form of 5 Alpha and thereby dht. Abnormal male development has not be listed as a side effect, however, erectile dysfunction and decreased libido that persist even after the drug is stopped have been reported. ...Read more

Healthy Living: Nope. Not in any way. All of these myths are lies designed to cause shame in young men and women to get them to be brain washed. This shame is the real disease. It can cause bizarre and dangerous actions that lead away from health. Masturbation does not have any 'bad' health or medical consequences. ...Read more

I got early puberty when i was 9 and a half so it affect my body development and growth. Now I am 17.My father is 5.8, mother 5.3. I am 5.1.

Likely finished: Your predicted height based on parental height would be 5'3" but that is just an estimate. Most women grow another 2-4 inches after their first menses and stop.If you have not grown in the last year or more you are likely finished.An x-ray of your wrist/hand could be studied for growth centers.If open, you might grow more, if closed, you are done. ...Read more
