I hit puberty really late at age 17. Doctors say it takes between 5-7 years for your body to go through a complete biochemical change(which is puberty). I'm 20 now and although I hit puberty when I was 17 I've been going through it very slowly(Still have almost no facial hair!) So because I'm obviously still going through puberty(A biochemical change) does that mean my penis will continue to grow? People have told me that your penis doesn't stop growing until you finish puberty. Which is why alot of guys stop growing at age 18 or 19(Because they hit puberty at age 12-14)Also one of my friends used to be really skinny but then he gained quite abit of weight, and he told me that the girth of his penis increased significantly when he put on weight. So does the girth of your penis have to do with how big you are? (Ex. Would a 6'2" 230 pound guy have a thicker penis than a 6'2" 180 pound guy?) Your opinions are well appreciated.
Penis Size vs. When You Hit Puberty
I'm new to the board and I have some questions and comments...
That must have been very difficult for you, hitting puberty so late.
Different people get the different changes at different relative timetables, so it's not possible to predict the exact order of events, or even how long the process will last. Your penis can start growing, and finish growing, quite early in puberty, or quite late in the process. It usually finishes before all the processes of puberty are over - typically penis growth might end while your face is still getting hairier, and before your chest has started getting hairy.
There's not much fat on a penis, so putting on weight shouldn't increase your penis girth significantly. It will, however, decrease your apparent length, because the attached end of the penis gets buried in more fat; so the girth to length ratio increases.
i know what ur going through
i didnt hit puberty until about the same age as you
1. stages of puberty hit at all differnt times for everyone
2. your not dying, if anyone else worries about ur penis size, they're not worth ur attention.
lol, hope i helped lol.
look forward to ur reply
My dick started growing around 10/11, and grew pretty large rather fast. By time I was 14, my dick reached my current length of 9.75", and hasnt swollen much bigger since. In terms of anything else, I pretty much hit my current height (5'10") around then too.
if what your saying is true, then it seems you hit puberty real early. however
im sick of people saying woah you hit puberty late or early. except for certain medical issues preventing puberty from hitting i believe that people hit puberty at all different ages ranging from young young to late teens like 18 but i dont think that really is a problem.
what i have an issue with is that when i see people as young as like 14 having a full lenth dick (we all know mostly everyone lies about their length or dont know exactly how to measure so we cant believe everything we read) but i find it fascinating how with me, my penis has taken so very long to grow, its growing, but takeing many many years. but then there are some who say they started puberty at like 13 and at 14 they have a 6 inch penis. another thing i find annoying is that when 13 yr old kids ask if a 7 inch dick is good or not LOOK THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE SO INSECURE CUZ THEY HAVE TINY DICKS AND THEY'RE OLD. so i find that so annoying. aaaah, thats my bitch for the day.
june - you may find all that annoying, but that is life. As frustrating as it is, its very possible to have a 13 year old with a full size 6 inch penis, while a 16 year old is still growing with a 4.5 inch penis. Or even an adult who has finished growing and has a 4.5 inch penis.
<i>My avatar is a picture of my own sperm under a microscope. Pretty cool huh?</i><br />Drugs are garbage. I'm high on my own testosterone.
ooooh no no i totally understand
i beliveve what i was trying to say was that a 13 yr old wants to know if they are normal, but they are probably just trying to boast on how big their dick is thats why i find it hilarious when people reply with "no ur not normal with a 7 inch dick at 12" lol aaah, kids worry too much ehhehehe when they have such a huge dick lol
I totally understand that june, I see that a lot here... Half the time they're probably exagerrating or measuring from the underside, though. And it is annoying... It's like you have to reply saying "Oh, you're bigger than most adults, " or you look like an asshole to everyone.
I think that people getting to their final size at 13 or 14 isn't that unbelievable, though. For example, I'm 14 now, and my size is 6.5" length 5.75" girth (just for the record, no rounding or underside measuring - so I wouldn't be a hypocrite saying that it's annoying when 13-14 year olds exagerrate their sizes). I honestly don't think it's going to get much bigger (although I definitely wouldn't mind it ), because it was growing really fast when I was about 12, but after 13 it barely grew at all (although I did increase a lot in girth).
well thats quite interesting, because i started growing a while back, and i could tell it was getting bigger but it wasent as if one day it was way bigger, its taking so long that im not notceing it. i still have quite a lot of growing to do, so i guess im one of those people who over ther years the penis grows gradually rather than rapidely.
Hoody, im the same as you, well a year younger though, i just started going through puberty now. and Everyone i nkow hit between like 11-14. I felt so fucked up, but this forum helps
~The future belongs in the hands of those who believe in the beauty of their dreams~
its great that there are forums like this for people like us to find out that we are NORMAL heheehe
i start puberty really late and something that i found out is that during early stages of puberty i could hide the fact that i wasnt as developed.
but now, in the later years of puberty i find that people can notice even more than before due to the fact that i dont shave yet and i reckon people notice this as i notice everyone else
but i guess we all have to be mature about it and now i simple say to people if they comment that i tell the truth with a bit of comedy and they see that im mature about it and it goes no further.
theres hope for everyone
LOL i don't think anybody really addressed the nature of the question of this forum. i've wondered about this as well. if you hit puberty at age 11 or 12, by the time u stop growing, will your penis be bigger, in all aspects, then a person is who has hit puberty at 16 or 17, and is also done growing? so i guess will the younger u hit puberty, determine how big you end up being?
It's a good question, blakmnoncmps, but I don't know if there's any answer. First, because I haven't heard of any study on the question; and second, because any effect one way or the other would probably be swamped by individual differences. And individual differences are huge when it comes to puberty - just see this thread for a few examples.
With height, I have heard the suggestion that people who start late end up on average taller, because they have got more growing in before the growth spurt, which ends in stopping all growth. It could be the same for penis size for all we know, which would be the opposite of your suggestion.
My impression is that people who are large have either been large all their lives (the most usual case), or have an extended puberty growth spurt.
i dont think it has any relation to how 'big' you get
for example, someone has a preturatory problem and needs to have their hormones replaced - so they will be receiving growth hormone so they grow taller and at a certain time testosterone replacement if the body cant do it itself.
doctors usually like to wait longer until the body has grown a bit before they start with the testosterone due to bone structure and age in relation to certain hormones...
so, even if they no longer need the growth hormone (once they physically cannot grow anymore) they would still continue with the testostorone (life long), but i believe the penis will still keep growing, facial hair will start etc etc.
so if someone starts puberty at like 10, they will just finish the pubery cycle before their growth cycle the only thing that may perhibit this would be the bone age
and if someone entered puberty late at like 17 they will just look taller but more boyish until their pubery cycle has finished!
wow june, u actually helped me out, i am 17, 4.5 inches erect, and i look extremely boyish, i get thought of as a 13 year old, although i'm done with high school and all that stuff...so u think i'm still goin throught puberty? i have under arm hair but not like an afro under there, i have pubic hair that has spread to the inner thigh, but not thickly yet, i have very lil facial hair, not even noticeable...
what i said before may of came off a little too strong or confident, but as said before, every person is different, that was my story
i dooooo believe however that you shouldnt be worried about ur development. the only other way of explaining it would be like chest hair, most people dont get a full bloat of it until they are way out of the normal 'puberty zone'
hope my mumbo was understandable
by the way - boyish, looks really sexy mate
i think that when you get fat, everything is going to get fat. such as your penis. but my question is, when you loos the weight, does your penis too? i
I don't think the size of your penis is much affected by how fat you are. It's not like the breast; it doesn't contain fat tissue. When you gain a lot of weight, though, the fat pad around the base of the penis can hide part of the shaft, which makes the penis look smaller.

to be honest I started puberty when I was 17 I am still going through puberty As I am 20 my penis size is 7.5 and nobody knows what is human body's going to do all based on the genetics of a person's mother and father so nobody knows don't let anybody it's all based on genetics sorry kid that's the truth and when you're looking for answers look at your genetics not what people tell you
