Thank you Dr XXXXXXX I have a small anxiety about past medication I underwent when I was 14 It was to boost my growth and was called oxandrolone, the doctor prescribed 2.5mg daily for 3 months (as per the summary report) The medicine arrived by expedited package to our home address. And I began the course. Now, when I think back about this past event, how do I even know it was oxandrolone I was taking every day?! What if it was another medicine like testosterone by mistake? How do I even know it was 2.5mg and not 10 mg?? Hope you can advise.

Brief Answer: Sadly cannot guarantee dose or drug Detailed Answer: Hello once again XXXX. It was my pleasure to be of assistance. Well, unfortunately oxandrolone comes in various forms and are produced by different companies which is why it is very difficult to comment on the appearance of the pills, and to help guarantee that the pill you took was indeed oxandrolone. In some cases it appears to be an orangish-pink square tablet, some companies produce it in the form of a white circular shaped tablet, and so on. So I am very sorry to inform you sir, that I cannot guarantee just based on appearance whether what you took was oxandrolone or not. My sincere apologies. I do not think it would be medically ethical to send over another drug, as this would be considered malpractise and you can even XXXXXXX your doctor for doing so. This being said, I feel the drug should have been oxandrolone as extra care would have been taken to ensure the delivery of the right drug to the right individual. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help. Best wishes.

Dear Dr XXXXXXX , Thank you for advice I have old summary report mentioning 2.5mg oxandrolone as my medication. But who knows what it was...it was such a long time ago, and it could've been something else handed to me.... My parents don't remember reading the medicine before giving to me, maybe because I was 14 and took charge of the situation , who knows. Thanks for your help and advice.

Brief Answer: I am sure you are & always will be fine Detailed Answer: Hello my friend. Medical ethics compells a medical practitioner to abide by the rules and so your doctor could not and should not have given you anything else. Let us just hope that he was a good practitioner, and did as he informed you. But either way Rony, do not worry. If there is anything that is abnormal or worrying health-wise, I am always here to guide and help you. May god bless you with his abundance. Best wishes.

Thank you Dr XXXXXXX I hope he was too. All these years ago, I remember taking the medication daily . I just wish i took a photo of the packet or something. I'm concerned they made mistake and maybe the medication was a higher dosage oxandrolone, such as 10mg...which caused abnormal and fast pubertal development. Your kind advice would be appreciated. Wishing you all the best. Regards RF

Brief Answer: I am sure you are fine, and always should be Detailed Answer: Hi. You are most welcome, it was my pleasure to be of assistance. Well do not worry about rapid or early pubertal development, it does not really cause any complications, but as far as I know, the system makes sure such mistakes do not occur. As the rules in all countries today, state that such mistakes can lead to serious repercussions like medical law-suits, etc. So please do not worry, I am sure such a mistake did not take place, and even if it did, there should be no complications or side effects suffered by you. Please rest assured, I am sure you are healthy, and god-willing, shall always be. Best wishes.

Hi, I have a somewhat embarrassing puberty question. I'm 16 and male, I started puberty a little late but now I'm at an average adult height, I have plenty of hair, and at my last checkup about 9 months ago, my doctor seemed content with the size of my testicles. The only issue is I cannot ejaculate. Am I just late? Or is something wrong?

My nine year old son has red rings in his armpits. The skin is irritated and raised in a circle, but not itchy. The middle of the ring is white. We seem to have noticed he has started having smelly armpits too. Could it be related to hormones and pre puberty? Thank you

I am 14 and i think my penis is to small, i also think that i do not have much pubic/under arm hair. Another major problem is that when i ejaculate, very little semen comes out and it is relatively clear. Is because of the low sperm count? If so, will these problems be solved as a go through with puberty?

Hi, im a guy. I am 5 feet and seven inches, I way 154 pounds.
I just turned 15 in March and I'm worrying about my penis size. I have lots of pubic hair, armpit hair, leg hair, thigh hair and I need to shave every 3 days so I don't get that scruffy beard look. My penis size hasn't increased anymore than 1cm in the past four years (thats when I started puberty). My penis is 5-5.2 inches long with about a 4 inch girth/circumference. Will my penis grow anymore, or am I stuck at my size right now?
