Approx. 20 yr. Old male, m i having gynecomastia? Not crossed puberty changes(body indicates), no chest hair and not full facial hair? Should i wait?

Get seen: You're "approximately 20 years old" and you seem to be using euphemisms for not having powerful erections / ejaculations like your peers. I suspect you have XXY or some other disorder preventing you from becoming a complete man. In any case, you don't have to tolerate having gynecomastia -- removing these is office surgery. I hope you get what you want -- and an XXY has a choice. Best wishes. ...Read more

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

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

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

Does having early puberty and facial hair means you stop growing earlier?

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
