In brief: It varies

In many boys pubic hair (pubarche) and testicular growth (gonadarche) occur around the same time but in my practice I have seen many boys whose pubic hair appeared at age 6-8 and it was several years after that that gonadarche began.
So if you have a son with pubarche which is early, don't worry because he will probably not need any treatment.
