Healthy Bodies

Stage One

During this phase boys grow a lot, maybe even up to 4 inches in a year.

Hormones become active and testicles begin to mature.

Boys may occasionally experience erections.

Puberty:Physical Changes

Stage Two:

Boys may grow taller and notice changes in body shape. This is normal as the body begins adding muscle and fat.

Testicles continue to grow.

The penis is not getting much larger yet. This is normal.

Small hairs may begin to grow at the base of the penis.

Puberty:Physical Changes

Stage Three:

Pubic Hair begins to grow darker and fuller

The penis begins to grow in length

Erections happen more often

The voice may begin ‘breaking’ or ‘cracking’.

Puberty: Physical Changes

Stage Four:

Signs of hair in the armpits and on the face.

Pubic hair begins to grow coarse.

Voice becomes even deeper.

Penis and testicles grow larger.

Puberty: Physical Changes

Final height is gained

Body shape resembles that of a man: broader shoulders and developed muscles.

Pubic Hair will spread out to inner thighs and lower stomach.

Shaving at this point.

Pubic hair and sex organs will look fully developed.

Final Stage of Puberty

Feelings may change from day to day (Mood swings = happy then sad)

Caused by hormones (testosterone)

Don’t worry; it’s all part of growing up!

Puberty: Emotional Changes

Wet Dreams are part of the male reproductive process

Wet Dreams happen at night time when you sleep.

Wet Dreams happen to get rid of sperm and semen that are stored in your testicles
