People normally do not grow after puberty unless their pituitary gland is out of control, with the exception of gaining muscle mass through exercise (or getting fat from lack of exercise and a poor diet).

Generally puberty in boys lasts on average for around six years and ends when all growing is complete.

The range for puberty to begin can be from 9 years of age right up until the late teens. For girls the range is shorter, they begin earlier on average and finish growing earlier than boys. For girls the average end of puberty is about the age of 15 or 16. For boys the average end of puberty is about the age of 18 or 19.

When do you hit puberty?

Usually your testes and scrotum grow first, so that they start to hang lower and get bigger while your penis is still the same as it always was. Then gradually your penis will start to catch up and get longer and thicker. Most boys start puberty on average at 12 or 13 years of age and by 14 your penis should be noticably bigger than it was when you were a child. But remember that all boys are not the same and some boys start puberty earlier or later than others. They don't all go through the various different changes in the same order either. If you mean bigger in general, like height, then that is just as variable. Some boys shoot up right at the begining of puberty while others have a growth surge towards the end of puberty, in their late teens.
