If I am at Tanner Stage 4.2 (approximately) and I'm 5'3.5", how much can I grow, if at all?

If I am at Tanner Stage 4.2 (approximately) and I'm 5'3.5", how much can I grow, if at all?

Not much at all: The most definitive test to get is the bone age wherein an X-Ray of your wrist and palm and fingers is taken and then compared to age and sex matched controls. That will tell you how much potential growth you have left in your skeleton. Most women stop their skeletal growth about 2 yrs after their first menses. Then there are hi heel shoes and vertically stripped clothes.Read The Serenity Prayer. ...Read more

Typically the 5: Tanner stages that describe sexual development in puberty end at about age 15. You're right, Tanner stage 4 usually represents a 13-14 year old. Incomplete development of secondary sexual characteristics in males usually results from inadequate testosterone secretion which is most often caused by a defect in the pituitary hormone which stimulates the testicle. See an Endocrinologist.Good wishes ...Read more

My son is 13 years old and is 5'5". The doctor says he is in tanner stage 4. My husband is 5'8" and I am 5 '5". Does he have a chance to grow more?

My son is 13 years old and is  5'5". The doctor says he is in tanner stage 4. My husband is 5'8" and I am 5 '5". Does he have a chance to grow more?

Possibly: Growth continues until the growth centers in the bone close. In males this usually happens between 16-17. Your listed heights suggest the expected final height of your son would be 5'9" give or take an inch. This suggests there is time to grow more. An x-ray of his wrist/hand could provide a better estimate of how much longer he has to grow taller. ...Read more

Doc says im in tanner stage 4. But im 18, 6'2 and 170 lbs of muscle? However my penis is still small and hasnt developed. What is the matter?

Nothing: Nothing is the matter. Give your body time to develop fully. After all, it's not the size, it's whether you have one in the first place. It's not the size of the wand but the skill of the magician. ...Read more

Yes: You and your penis are still going through puberty, although you're in the later stages. Your penis still has time to grow, but remember, size isn't important. What's important is that you have a penis - less than half the people on earth have one. ...Read more

What is recommended dose of testosterone to enter tanner stage 5 at age 18 with constitutional delayed puberty to enlarge my testis from 15ml to 18ml.

It won't : Testosterone doesn't cause testicular enlargement. In fact it can do the opposite by suppressing the pituitary gland's release of lh. We use it to induce puberty in small doses when testes are pre-pubertal size. The testicular enlargement that occurs is from the boy's own lh. If testicular growth is arrested, a pediatric endocrinologist should be consulted for the child. ...Read more

Possible a little: Most girls grow for about two years after onset of menses. You don't say how far into 16 you are. If just turned 16, you have almost a year to grow yet, but if almost 17, then your growth is about done. My guess is you may have 1/2 to 1 inch possible yet. ...Read more

Is there a pill that can make skin darker/tanner? If so any side affects. I just want a way to get tan

NO. : There is no pill which is safe and that can make your natural skin darker. The color of your skin has to do with the amount of melanin in the deep layer of your skin, and you don't want to take a drug that fools around with mother nature here. Take a vacation in a warm sunny place, use spf 15 skin lotion…..Or just fogetabotit. ...Read more

I am 17 years old and a boy, i have grown 1 cm this month so far, does this mean i am growth spurt and which stage am i on the tanner gstage?

Growing velocity..: Varies with age. Growth spurt usually occurs at puberty. Increment of 1 cm in a month if accurately measured is quite robust. Tanner staging requires a physical examination. A rate of increase of about 6 - 12 cm /12 months is within normal limits.
