What are the signs of puberty in men?

I am 16 and i have not gone through puberty yet, however when looking on the internet to see if this is normal i found a chart showing the different stages of puberty. Stage 2 was pubic hair growing at the base of your penis, and i have been at this stage for quite a while now and feel as if i will never go through puberty. Should i go to my doctor and see if there is any problems?

Hello,

Since there is pubertal arrest I feel there is need to look for hormonal causes of delayed puberty. This can be done by testing the sex hormone profile for which you need to visit a doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ashok Kumar, Psychiatrist
