People say if u hit puberty earlier u will grow less i hit puberty when i was 14 and i started a bit facial hair im a boy is this true.....

Possible but rare: Once puberty starts it rarely stalls. A problem with the testes or the pituitary gland could explain this or it could be a normal variation. If you are really concerned he could get some tests ordered by his PCP which should include LH and FSH (pituitary hormones regulating puberty) and testosterone and if those are normal you need not be concerned but if abnormal he should see endocrinology. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
