Five basic steps in puberty

Puberty is a time in a young person's life when their body suddenly changes in a number of ways. Puberty lasts for about a year and a half. There are five major changes that boys notice during puberty.

(1) Most males start puberty with their first ejaculation of semen. About 80 percent of males have their first ejaculation by masturbating. Nearly all the rest have their first ejaculation with a nocturnal emission (wet dream).

(2) The next thing that happens to most males is that their pubic and body hair starts to grow.

(3) Then a male's voice changes. It takes a few months to go from a boyish soprano to a deeper male voice, and this phase can involve awkward squeaking.

(4) Then a boy grows taller, and his body grows wider and heavier too.

(5) When facial hair grows in, you're probably done with puberty. Your body will continue to change for several more years, but at a much slower pace. is not designed to provide medical advice and does not provide medical advice.
