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?
