Is it normal for a 10 year old to have pubic hair?
It is normal for production of these hormones to increase (something we call adrenarche) and for pubic hair to appear after age 8 in girls or 9 in boys. The reason why this increase occurs earlier in some children is not known.
At what age do pubic hairs appear?
|Tanner stages in males||Age at the start||Noticeable changes|
|Stage 1||After the 9th or 10th birthday||None|
|Stage 2||Around age 11||Pubic hair starts to form|
|Stage 3||Around age 13||Voice begins to change or “crack”; muscles get larger|
|Stage 4||Around age 14||Acne may appear; armpit hair forms|

Can 12 year olds get pubes?
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.
