Since some here want to accuse me of all manner of impropriety with children, specifically boys, I will now show everyone why that is so. This won’t be above your pay scale, this is really simple.
This is one such message I received, and I think the ‘person’ who gave the me the ‘you’re banned’ message must have let it though so Amy here could leave his/her not quite intelligent comment, the caliber of which you can get used to if you regularly take part in “Debate This”
So now you know why XXY boys rarely get diagnosed before adulthood, this is the type of fear non erotic sex information receives from ignorant people.
Boys usually have testicles in their scrotum at birth. Testicles grow throughout childhood and at puberty they massively increase in size, as the diagram below shows.
Testicles grow in puberty as they produce more and more testosterone, which is caused by increasing levels of a hormone called Leutenising Hormone, which is made in the Pituitary gland in the brain.
Some boys’ testes don’t grow and puberty does not begin and they can have a disease called Kallmann syndrome. If your boy gets to 14 and has not started puberty, take him to a doctor and insist on LH and FSH hormone level checks. Girls can have Kallmann syndrome too. The most obvious sign for all people with the most common form of Kallmann syndrome is anosmia, no sense of smell.
Like most other boys XXY boys start puberty sometime about age 11. Their testes do grow in response to LH from their brain, however soon after puberty’s onset their testicles atrophy, they shrink, severely, back to childhood size or less. This is caused by a disease called seminiferous tubule dysgenesis.
Whether you think your sons and daughters are progressing through puberty properly or not, I think it is important to have all teenage boys and girls examined by a doctor to make certain everything is progressing as it should.
A teenage boy with atrophied testes will not notice, nor will anyone else, as this is about sex, and sex is frowned upon by society at large. In fact I read just recently how a 16 year old teenage boy died of testicular cancer because he was taught to be ashamed of his body, in my opinion.
Is there any mature person here who wishes to have an adult discussion about any of the topics I have raised?
