    Im 16, Oldest in my year and im getting really self consicious about puberty. Ive been rejected countless times because "u look too young" or "you look like a 12 year old" and its quite disheartaning. I have pubes on my groin and possibly like 4 hairs or something on my arms, none over the rest of my body and my face is really circular. What should i do? I dont know whether i need to consider going to the doctors or something for pills or anything. Whats the most embarrising is that im the oldest in my year yet i look the youngest. thanks

    I don’t know if you’re a male or female, but you’re lucky and you have a bay face which is a great thing because when you get older, it is likely that you want to look young. If you are a female, the only thing you should be worried about is you have not had your period. If you’re a male, you’re still in puberty so you shouldn’t worry and also beauty is subjective remember, there are people out there who like how you are. I’m 16 too (only for two more days though) I’m in Year 12, don’t worry about it so much, you are beautiful and unique in the way you are.

    We all develop at different rates mate.
    Honestly the only thing you should be worried about at your age is getting your work done and achieving good grades. Body hair doesn’t define a person.

    Stop drinking tap water and you'll notice immediate changes.

    Joking, but I really wouldn't worry about it, you're in puberty already i think... (hair growing and stuff), but really I wouldn't stress. Maybe start lifting weights and stuff like that if it really bothers you, might get some testosterone flowing and you MAY even grow a beard.
