I'm questioning my growth

Your Question

Im 13 going 14 in May, I still havent had a wet dream and it is making me question my growth. At what age should I seek medical attention for not having any wet dreams and what is it like?


Hey there! Thanks for getting in touch with us!

It’s completely normal for everyone to go through puberty at their own pace, and experiencing wet dreams is no exception. It’s important to remember that these changes happen differently for each individual, and there’s no specific age when they should occur. So, if you haven’t had a wet dream yet, don’t stress about it – everyone’s journey is unique. This article with a video may help explain what your body goes through during puberty

It’s totally okay to have questions about your growth and development. If you ever feel unsure or concerned, it’s a good idea to talk to a trusted adult, like a parent/carer, or even a healthcare professional like our GP. They can provide guidance based on your specific situation and help address any worries you might have.
