What age is considered early puberty?
Puberty is considered to be early in girls before 9 years old and boys before age 8. This is sometimes called “precocious puberty.”
Is starting puberty at 14 normal?
You'll know that you are going through puberty by the way that your body changes. Usually, these changes begin between the ages of 8 and 14 for girls, and between 9 and 15 for guys. This wide range in age is normal, and it's why you may develop several years earlier (or later) than most of your friends.
Is it normal for a 9 year old to have pubic hair?
Adrenarche is usually normal in girls who are at least 8 years old, and boys who are at least 9 years old. Even when pubic and underarm hair appear in children younger than this, it is still usually nothing to worry about, but your child does need to see their pediatrician for an exam.
