Hi fchrz, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Puberphonia or also known as functional falsetto is a condition in which a person does not experience changes in normal voice reduction after puberty. Normally a man's voice will experience a decrease of about 1 octave and a woman's voice will experience a decrease of about 1-3 semitones at puberty. If this normal voice reduction does not occur (so that the voice always sounds high like a child's voice) the person is said to have this functional falsetto or puberphonia.

Puberphonia can be caused by psychogenic or organic causes. The following are some of the psychogenic (psychological) causes that can cause puberphonia:

feeling embarrassed by a new voice that has changed (for example, because their voice changes occur faster than their peers) cannot accept a new role as an adult or do not want to become an adult wanting to maintain their soprano voice (e.g. in a singer) emotional stress

Some of the organic causes of puberphonia include:

incoordination of the muscles of the larynx tense the muscles of the larynx there are congenital abnormalities (congenital abnormalities) in the larynx, there are anatomical abnormalities of the vocal cords, there is paralysis of some of the vocal cords

To treat puberphonia, you should check with an ENT doctor first to make sure your puberphonia is not caused by organic causes first. If there is no organic disorder, you can check with a psychologist to deal with certain psychogenic disorders that you feel. In general, the treatment of puberphonia will require assistance from a therapist who specializes in speech disorders (speech therapist). Usually the doctor will refer you to be handled by a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist for further treatment.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
