Answer to your Health Question

Question: I've been reading the steps to puberty and most of them have happened but out of order. I'm a 15 y/o male and steps such as hair, penis growth and voice changes have occurred but my testes haven't started to grow. In all the websites I look at, they say its one of the first steps! Jono

Answer: Dear Jono,

Puberty consists of a series of changes in the human body and they can appear at different times depending on the person. Although most changes usually occur at a certain time, there is no rule for when they should happen.

A good guide is knowing when these changes occured in a family (father, brothers, grandfathers) as it is common for them to occur at the same time.

Puberty changes can occur all very rapidly or take up to 6 years for all of the them to result.
