No baby teeth by 10
Done growing by 13, despite being short

Later on:
Glasses, slower metabolism, and can’t sleep past 7 AM by 22, and still looking younger because of baby face. Not needing skin care routine any more already to keep skin clear. I won’t look young for long, better enjoy it.

People have always told me I look younger than my age, ironically. It’s the baby face. I look 17, but physiologically I’m 28. I blame it on stress—can anyone else relate?

I was an early bloomer, and I look very young for my age.

I was done growing by 12 or 13.

I think you have your terms backwards.

"Early Bloomers" look older or more mature than their chronological ages. A girl wearing size 34D at the age of 8, for example.

"Late Bloomers" look younger or less mature than their chronological ages. A woman who has yet to experience menarche at the age of 20, for example.

I’m saying that I was an early bloomer but that doesn’t make me look old now which I thought the initial post was suggesting. I look almost the same now as when I was 13.

I was an early bloomer physically & I look old for my age. I started losing my hair in my mid 20s & I have a bit of grey hair now. I've been a very late bloomer mentally thou & still am.

Yes, I’m the adult version of an early bloomer. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re 28. I blame college.

Yes, I'd say I was a pretty early bloomer. When I was 10, some people thought I was more like 12. I wasn't tall for my age and didn't have a particularly mature face, but I was a bit more developed than average. I was already needing a bra at that point. And I got my period not too long after I turned 11. But I barely grew any in height after that, and as I got older, people thought I was younger than I was because I was short and had a baby face. Now I'm 27, almost 28 and could still pass for 15. I'm 5'1" and still have such a baby face. Having no sense of fashion (and dressing more for comfort than anything else) and just having a childlike personality/demeanor probably doesn't help either.

Started puberty at age 9. When I was almost ten, I discovered I was growing pubic hair but it was all light and hadn't thickened yet. I started my vaginal discharge not too long later. I started my period two weeks before I turned 12, I got a woman's body not too long after and I got double D breasts. It started my pathway towards body dysmorphia and eating disorder. While my body was matured, my brain was not and I was not even into sex and relationships and knew nothing about it and didn't understand it. I didn't even like boys then either. I was still a little girl emotionally and socially.

Saying that girls can have sex and get relationships when they get their periods and a woman's body is bullshit. Some girls get a new body young. Even some young as 9 have gotten a woman's body. I have seen that even a 7 year old can get pubic hair and breasts. That doesn't mean they can consent and have a relationship. Someone in another thread had implied this and I was so disgusted at that comment.

When I was 12, I looked like a high schooler because of my body. When I was 10, people thought I was 13 or 14 because I was so tall for my age. But when I was 12, some people thought I was 15. It was not fun being msitaken as being older than your age. When I was little, it was because of my height but then it became because of my body than height. That made me uncomfortable and dysphoric about myself. I felt like I was in the wrong body and in a different one and not my own. It was nothing like gender dysphoria, I was experiencing body dysmorphia. Of course I got told back then this was all normal for girls to feel and I thought everyone obsessed about their bodies and felt uncomfortable about it than self conscious. I was also told that lot of girls obsess about their weight but I didn't know they didn't obsess about it to the same degree as me. I am not happy with my body unless I am skinny.


But I was a late bloomer sexually. I didn't start to get into sex until I was 19 and wanted to try it because I got curious. I even thought I was bisexual until I was 22 or 23 when my husband told me how two women have sex and it disgusted me so he told me that means I am straight. I thought "is that ow gay people feel about straight sex?" When I was 17 I tried getting a boyfriend but I didn't want a romantic relationship nor a sexual one, I just wanted a friendship with another boy and have us be a couple and we would be like friends. That is something that a child would want for a partner but not a 17 year old which is what made me a late bloomer.

Yeah, no kidding... I don't remember what it's officially called, but I had that thing that causes puberty to hit way earlier than it should (around the age of 8.) It's common for those with a disablity like mine, apparently. At that point I had to take shots every month to slow down my body's growth... and I was terrified of needels at the time.

I was a relatively early bloomer too. I was also a year older than most of my grade at school, so that exacerbated it. I was amongst the tallest in my grade until others had their growth spurts a couple of years later. I was also amongst the first to develop facial hair and have my voice change. I've generally been mistaken for older than I am since I was 12 or 13.

Precocious puberty?

-I can't fully remember when I lost all my baby teeth, but I think it was around nine or ten. Started to slow down with growing at sixteen, finally stopped at eighteen. I have a fast metabolism, and a skinny frame.

-Not completely sure if I have a baby face or not. Sometimes I'm asked for ID, but not always. People either guess fifteen or mid twenties. I'm currently twenty years old. When I smile my cheeks look rounder and I have dimples, so that might give me a younger look perhaps. However, I've noticed that if I straighten my hair I look a bit older. Whereas when I put it into a low ponytail I look like a young teenager.

- I started puberty at ten, that's when I began to get spotty. Experienced my first crush at eleven. Got my first period at fourteen. Back in high school/secondary, I was teased a little bit for being flat-chested. I took me a little longer to develop in that area. So I felt a little self-conscious. I'm still small chested now, but I've gotten more comfortable with that fact. I'd say that I have a slightly boyish body type. My face is feminine, and I do have small shoulders. However, my body is fairly rectangular. Someone recently remarked to me "Your hips definitely don't lie because you don't seem to have any". :lol: I'm also lanky. My feet are slightly wide and big but that's not too surprising considering my height (5'8).

Personally, I don't think of myself as an early bloomer, but I was one of the first people in my class to start getting spots. However, I was late to develop in the chest area and also getting my period. I was mostly considered ugly in my teen years, but that was mainly because if I ever dressed up or did my hair I'd get derogatory comments. So, if I didn't make an effort I was called ugly, but if I changed one thing then I was suddenly a whole range of insults. :? High school. You can't win.

May I ask what kind of disabilities early puberty can be related to :?: You can PM me if you want. The shots thing sounds pretty rough. I hated shots as a kid & teen as well. I had to get them sometimes thou cuz I would get sick or my skin eczema would flare up & cortizone shots helped a lot. I wish I could of been prescribed a steroid pill to take regularly long term for my eczema cuz I often had phases where my eczema got pretty bad. Plus it might would of been a good thing if the steroid had a side-effect of slowing down my puberty a little.
