  • Hypogonadism/Puberty

    Hi guys, hypothetical question. If testicular trauma occurred prior to puberty (~11/12yrs old) and resulted in a deficiency of testosterone which then led to the genitalia not reaching their full growth potential (in line with father/brothers etc), is the chance to achieve that growth totally lost if testosterone therapy is not administered during puberty itself?

    I'm waiting on blood results so the above is hypothetical. I didn't hit puberty 'til late 15/early 16, and am nearly 21. I don't 'fit' with my dad or brothers, or most other male relatives for that matters.

    Thanks.

    Hi Jeriko,

    I'm with you on this one (see hypogonadism)
    Worriing about your penis size is normal when your a man, maybe you should check [link deleted by dadmo] (WARNING NUDITY), you'll probably realise that your dimensions are normal. Penis size doesn't seem to be linked with overall virility (see
    [link deleted by dadmo]-warning again- for example), it's genetic. Your father maybe has a bigger one, but maybe your granfather on your mother side was "smaller".
    Unless you suffered of absolute hypogonadism and no puberty at all (yours was late but at a normal age), and so have a micropenis, you should be okay.
    There is a french porn actor who has an enormous one though he has only one testicule from birth.
    However I'm not sure of anything and still looking for more informations.

    Hope it helps,

    Georges

    ps : escuse my awful english I'm french.

      I thought it was useful. I don't think nudity is offensive on a medical forum, especially on this particular topic. I even warned for those who don't want to see nudity.

        Georges, I didn't see the links myself. Maybe it's a cultural difference, but I hear that the links you included weren't just nude images but pornographic ones, and that your point was just as well made without the references.

          apologize

          The link was to a website which collects photos from the web of naked men in order to make men aware what a normal penis is, and that its size has nothing to do with virility.
          Yes, this are not medical photos and some of them (probably from gay websites) are let say artistic... (however the term pornography is maybe too strong)
          Sorry if anybody had been shocked, that was not my goal. Maybe a private message to Jeriko would have been more appropriate.

          Damn, I have reinforced frenchies' reputation

            If your ever in question of what to or not to post you can always check with one of the forum leaders.... I saw the pictures and didn't think they were bad but we do have quite a few female members that may see other wise... We just don't want to offend anyone and we hope your not offended that the posts were deleted.. As you said ,maybe the PM was the way to go...

            Take care!!! DON

              Hey guys. So, I finally went and collected my results (I was busy with university). In that time I hit 21 - I'm getting old!

              Anywho, I haven't a clue what any of this means, can someone translate please?

              Serum testosterone 35.4 nmol/L
              Serum free T4 level 20.9 pmol/L
              Serum TSH level 1.5 mu/L

              Thanks guys. Hope you're all doing well.

                I too am in a similar situation, but I'm now 23. Anyone have any answers?

                  I too was late to puberty.

                  The answer to the question is that it depends on the origin of the Testosterone Deficiency.
                  If your testicles are able to produce Testosterone albeit at a lower level than is right for you, you may eventually be ok as I was, at least for a while and have a lovely daughter to prove it.

                  If however your Pituitary gland is not sending signals to your testicles, then production is unlikely to improve.

                  It would be a good idea to test for the following to discover what is going on.

                  Serum Testosterone, LH, FSH Prolactin, Estradiol and SHBG.

                  That will reveal the origins of your problem and whether there are obvious dependent factors so a decision can then be made about the best form of treatment.

                  I hope this helps
