Dear TeenHealthFX,

Dear Not a Problem,

TeenHealthFX wants to assure you that what you are experiencing is normal and part of the growing process known as puberty. The first sign of puberty in boys is an increase in the size of the testicles. In the early stages there is little pubic hair and the penis does not increase in size very much. Puberty continues with an increase in size of the testicles and penis and an increase of pubic and body hair. At some point you will experience a growth spurt that usually begins with an enlargement of the hands and feet and is later followed by growth in the arms, trunk and chest. Other changes you will notice are a deepening of the voice, an increase in muscle mass and the ability to get erection and ejaculate including wet dreams.

For more information on Puberty check out the American Academy of Pediatrics and Youth Shakers website.
