Not at all. Puberty lasts until you’re about 20 years old, and it comes in stages. You might have some signs of puberty (pubic hair, deeper voice) at an early age, while other changes (ejaculation and wet dreams) show up years later. Bodies are unique, so puberty is different for each person.
It’s normal to feel anxious, excited, and confused about when your body will grow and change. Knowing what to expect can make puberty changes seem less weird or stressful. It can help to talk to your parents or other adults you trust. And you can always chat with Roo, our private and non-judgemental chatbot for teens.
