    incomplete puberty

    i'm currently eighteen and i'm experancng a major problem. i don't think my body has developed like a normal male. My upper body hasent's stll lke a 14 year old .i have never seen any grown up with a less broad frame exept a person i know with a growth disorder . im still wearing my shirts that wore in 9th grade. My wrists are puny like sticks , my hands havent gotten bigger , my penis is pretty darn small i mean l 4-5 centmeters and 7-8 centometers when erect.My face i think looks youngish but i really can't tell though.

    Other impotant information - i have grown to my fathers height. includng a growth of 4 inches in both eighth grade and ninth grade.During those 2 years my voice also deepened. However did not gain weight in 9th and 10th grade( iwas stuck at around 120-125 pounds).in 9th grade i ate normalish around 2000 calories and in 10th grade i totally didn't eat enough ( under 2000 calories with physical activity) Currently m almost 5'8 in height and weigh 145 pounds - some fat around the belly if that matters in terms of hormone levels(used to be worse) . in addition if this makes a difference in terms of testosterone and other hormones , yes i can ejaculate, have facial hair and do think about women all the time like many men do

    in addition my doctor almost sent me to tests in 9th grade to investgate as to why didn't gain weight. The issue was never pursued from there since i didnt go to the doctors for a year and a half because my parents forgot about it when they got divorced. This year i adressed the issue of my body not physically developing like a normal male with my doctor in early february and he says that people come in all shapes and sizes. He didn't really adress it.

    i hope i'm not overeacting i do not want ths to make it extremely more difficult to find a girl, get a job or make new freinds. Are my eating habbits to blame? Should i see a new doctor? a specialist? am i overeacting ? is there anything i can do ?, is it too late ?
