Puberty not starting
Posted on: 04/28/2004
I am over 14 and a half and yet the only changes that I have gone through that represent puberty is some hair above my penis. After I masturbate a tiny amount of milky substance comes out but it can't be enough for an ejaculation. These are the only changes that I have gone through, should I contact a doctor and if not when should I if no more changes develop? I would greatly appreciate a reply as I am very seriously worried about my health and it is becoming embarrassing not having any armpit hair in the changing rooms because everyone else does. Thank you
Everyone grows at different paces and you are probably right on schedule for you. If worried, you can ask your parents how fast they developed, and ask your doctor - she or he can help you understand your body and its changes.
