I’m 11 years old turning 12 in 4 months. I’m showing signs of stage 4  of puberty but have stage 3 pubic hair. The calculator says I’m stage 3.8. What’s happening to me?


If your answers are correct to the calculator, then it means you started puberty exceptionally early. It would mean that you’ll finish early as well. You should talk to your doctor about it because entering stage 4 at the age of 11 is unusual. It could be just the way you are, but it could also be an indication of some internal problem that is throwing your hormones off.
