I am concerned and would appreciate some help looking for some websites with info on adult unfinished puberty: I went to a new gynecologist, had a checkup and she told me that my body is at stage three out of five in development which would put me right in the middle of puberty. I look very young for my age... but I am in my late 20s so this can't possibly be the case right [Confused] ?

I had my first very light and irregular periods at 12 while having teeny breast buds but before I had any pubic hair at all (that happened at around 15), my breasts and nipples didn't really develop or grow anything until I was 20-21 (not that they are any significant size now [Roll Eyes] ), I stopped growing around the same time and gained some weight. I have found information on delayed puberty but nothing on one that started but never finished. I'd appreciate any info. Thanks [Big Grin] .

HI sugar128,

Was your gynecologist able to give you any more information than that you were at Stage three in development? Is this something that concerns her? Is she suggesting any treatment or further investigation through tests?

I'm uncertain as to whether you're looking for sites that will give you more information or that will give you support, or both.

In terms of knowing what is going on with your body and why, your healthcare provider is probably the best person to talk to about that, as a Web site won't tell you what's happening with *your* body, only what *can* happen with people's bodies.
