Hi, basically I'm 17 but I haven't hit puberty yet and it's so embarrassing. I'm 6 foot tall, but I was meant to be around 6'3 by this age. My voice hasn't deepened at all and it's still really high, almost like a girl's, it hasn't changed since I was 10 and no matter how much I grunt it's still embarrassingly high. I have no pubic hair anywhere on my body, my legs are almost hairless, and I have no spots at all; my face is completely smooth. My testicles are not sagging yet, they're really small and there's no hair on them or anything. My penis is barely more than 1 inch flaccid and 2 1/2 hard. It's just an indescribably depressing and embarrassing problem. Every other guy in at school in my year has hit puberty and I still feel like I'm 12. I get a lot of girls saying I'm 'cute' and 'innocent' and calling me 'babyface' which really pisses me off.

It's even worse at home. We've only got a small flat so my parents sometimes see me naked coming out of the shower room or things like that, and I can tell they're wondering why I'm still stuck in the body of a 12 year old when I'm 17. Also my brother is 15 and for a while I thought he was going the same way as me, so it might have been genetic, but a few months ago his voice broke really deep and he's got some spots now and has clearly hit puberty. It's excruciatingly embarrassing that my own 15 year old brother sounds like a man and has hit puberty before me, and when we meet people as a family like on holiday everyone thinks he's the older child. I have no confidence with girls anymore cos there was a girl I really liked since I was about 11, and last year we were getting intimate and she saw my 1 inch penis for the first time and just couldn't stop giggling, so I got really angry and punched her and we haven't spoken since. Can someone please tell me when I'm going to hit puberty?

Hi Conal,

You need to see your doctor, for a full physical exam, including blood work. You may consider seeing an Endocrinologist if you are able, they deal with hormones and such.

You should most definitely be experiencing some signs of puberty by now.

Good luck, keep us posted

Yes, you really should see a Specialist, as you should have started puberty a long time ago. Talk to your mom/dad, talk to your counselor at school as well.

As far as getting intimate with a girl is concerned.....

This is abviously upsetting you and putting you in a bad situation with the opposite sex, i know. The little girl that "giggled" was out of line, but so were you when you punched her. Keep yourself out of those situations until you have seen a doctor if your afraid of the same thing happening again. People can be mean and not understanding at all.

I've been trying to convince myself to go to the doctor for months but I think I'd find it really embarrassing to be examined :(

Conal,

You don't need to be embarrassed by seeing a doctor. They are there to help you and have seen just about everything. They are professionals.

The doctors can help find out what is going on with you so it should reduce your embarrassment.

See the doctor.

There is absolutly nothing to be embarrassed about when it comes to seeing your doctor. Like medic dan said, they have seen EVERYTHING!

Let me tell you a quick story Conal. A couple years ago i went to the emergency room with my neighbor who got injured while doing some yard work. As we sat in the holding area a man came in with a serious issue...he got a potatoe stuck in his rectum!!!! Honest to goodness, he did. As we sat in the cubicle next to him and heard everything. He was in some serious pain and the staff was very sensitive to his plight. See, that is what i mean when i say the doctor's have seen it all.

Don't be afraid at all, they are they to help you. Get it taken care of now before you get any older and start to date, as time goes by you may want to marry and have a family, but if your uncomfortable and embarrassed with the opposite sex because of your issue, you will have problems. Just see him/her, that is what they are there for.

Hi Reece,

If you have pubic hair you likely have started puberty. Have there been other signs?

My name is Jefferson,

I just turned 18 and am worried.  I am 6 foot tall.I started getting pubic hair when I was 13 but it hasn't grown since. Also my testicles haven't dropped and my penis is only 4 inches hard. I had to break up with my last girlfriend because I am embarrassed to have sex. I am to embarrassed to tell a doctor or my parents. I am just worried something is wrong and I wouldn't speak up soon enough. Help would be appreciated!

Hi Gibbs,

5" is average for an adult male. Can you feel your testicles?
