major maturing issues

ok well this really weird for me to type out.......but I think that this will make the track ahead a lot smoother.....the reason this will be weird is because I have NEVER told anybody of this.....here goes.....I am a 24 year old mail. I can not grow facial hair. I have pubic hair and armpit hair but that is about it. the hair on my legs and arms has never thickened up at all... and the pubic hair has not spread at all. I literally look as tho I have the body of a 15/16 year old boy. and that all isn't even the worst part. my penis and testicals are the size of an infants...this is no joke at all....I have no idea what is wrong with me....I am a diabetic, have ben since 2000.....I do take care of myself.....and another thing is, about 9 months ago I weighed 225 pounds and wore a size 42 inch jeans and now I weigh 160 pounds and wear a size 32 inch jeans......any advice would b good......I just recently got insurance at my job and plan on goin to a doctor at sometime, but I don't even know who to go c.......what kind of doctor do I go to?

Re: major maturing issues

it's time to make an appointment with an endocrinologist, and get a full workup.

Re: major maturing issues

Although I can see why this has been hard for you too express to anyone, the first step has been made. Good for you! Doctors and their staff are used to handling personal matters, and will go out of their way to treat you discreetly and respectfully. You can be assured that your case is just one of many, and you have no reason to be embarassed. Whatever is going on is certainly not your fault, and you deserve to be treated for whatever it is! Best of luck to you...

Re: major maturing issues

Well you will need several different doctors but start with a general MD and then he/she will or should refer you to an endocrinologist and urologist. If you have insurance you prob will have to go this route because they expect the main doc to first see what if any the problem is and then if he isn't capable of treatment then they should refer you on. But the first thing to do is call for an appt for a complete physical. Among other things they should do blood work and hands on exam will start the whole thing. Good luck.

Re: major maturing issues

thank you all for the replies.....its always ben really weird for me because I have a 19 year old brother and he has ben maturing at I guess normal speed (he has facial hair), and it is so hard for people to believe that he is not older than me. I do have the mental maturity of a 24 year old. like once people talk to me and my brother they can usually tell that I am older. lol. but another question is, would it be totally weird for me to write the problems out on paper and have the doctor read them rather than me tellin them everything? I don't know if I could mentally make it through that and I really don't have a support team at all.....like I said before......I have told nobody of this......they can all obviously see the baby face but not the other abnormalities.

Re: major maturing issues

Certainly..writing out a list of issues to share with your doctor is always a good idea, and doctors are quite used to that. That way you don't forget anything you want to ask, and get the most out of your appointment. Many of us do the same thing.

Re: major maturing issues

o ya and another thing is....my body does not make sperm. I can get an erection, and I can have what I assume to be an orgasm, but nothing comes out.....???.......

I was on zoloft for the longest time, but them started self medicating, ditched the zoloft, and I really feel like a much better person now.....and that's no lie......would the doctors turn n that they found thc n my blood? like to my insurance or my job? should I clean up before all this? I don't wanna quit but I also can't afford to lose my job

Re: major maturing issues

Your doctor patient privilege protects you from such things. Be honest, doctors have heard it all. It should never get back to you work.

Re: major maturing issues

thanks for the advice people.....it is greatly needed.....now, to b honest with you all, showing the doctor(s) my crotch area is probably going to be like the most embarassing thing that I have ever had to go through.....I almost get an anxiety attack just thinkin about it.....is there anything at all that I could possibly do to not make it so freakin awkward?

Re: major maturing issues

The endocrinologist can help you. That's the specialy that deals with all glandular issues, which includes your diabetes itself as well as the testes and their production of testosterone. Good luck at the doctor's.

I understand the anxiety, I went though it too when I had to go for my first physical. All I kept telling myslef "they are a doctor, this is their job and this is routine for them, they see so many people per day" You would be surprised at how that makes a difference. When you get in there and the doc starts talking to then you will realize it's no as bad as you thought, they are so understanding and comforting and make you feel very comfortable. If you don't want to bring up everything to them, you can just make a list of points and tell them here are some of your concerns with your health, they will look at the concerns you write down and they will be the one to ask the questions as they go through your concers to get a better understanding, which I find takes a lot of pressure off because you don't have to explain and ramble and get all nervous, you take it one question at a time. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Re: major maturing issues

About the actual examination by the doctor...No one likes anyone looking at our private areas, but sometimes it just has to happen, for our own good.

Think about us women...we start at a young age, and accept a lifetime of embarrasing exams, and none of us like it, but we do it for our health, and for every baby ever born.

They will surely give you a gown to wear, and the doctor will just peek in for a second. Imagine the relief you will feel afterwards, and getting this resolved for yourself.
