Hey Scott, glad you wrote. Unfortunately puberty happens for all of us at different times during our teenage years. Makes it bad because many of your buddies are probably well into or out of the puberty thing. Certainly there are doctors, one of which should be your regular doc who can answer any questions. Hang in there, you'll catch up to everyone else with hair in all the right places and all the equipment in working order. Are the men in your family "hairy"? Sometimes some of us have more hair all over the body than our peers do and that is generally a genetic thing. So you may not develop as much hair as others. As for the testosterone injections....I think I'd wait on that! Be healthy, eat right, excercise and enjoy being 17, take good care of yourself. All of those things are factors in development and overall health.
