Puberty is sure to be experienced by both men and women. Puberty occurs in different time frames. Generally women will experience puberty earlier than men. On average in the age range of 8-13 years women experience this condition. While men have a slower time, which is between the ages of 12-16 years. Of course, this time is only limited to average, and there is often a variation of each person. So that the time of puberty everyone is different, there are earlier and some are slower than that time span.
Puberty is a condition when the active hormones are reproductive hormones. This results in men and women experiencing changes in their physical condition both from the growth and development of their reproductive organs.
In men, the hormonal increase that occurs during puberty triggers hair growth in the armpits, genital area and hair in other body parts. In addition, the penis and testicles will also enlarge to adulthood, the sound will change, acne starts and muscle mass increases. Often the penis can tighten by itself and trigger ejaculation without realizing it (or also called the wet dream).
You do not need to worry about the conditions you are experiencing. Keep in mind that each person has a different time of puberty. Pubic hair that is less numerous and thin, and the size of the penis and testicles that are less than normal does not necessarily indicate that you have problems with puberty. It may be that it only takes time to wait for your puberty to peak.
Puberty requires support from other factors such as balanced nutrition and physical activity. Therefore, enough of your nutrition by consuming healthy and highly nutritious foods, multiply physical activities outside such as exercise, adequate rest, and do a healthy lifestyle.
If you are still in doubt, you can carry out further consultations and discussions with the nearest doctor or the specialist in andrology or urology to get more complete information regarding your condition.
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
