Question: Pre-adolescence


 forester - Tue Dec 27, 2005 12:54 am

Is it normal for pre-adolescent boys (almost 11) to experience pre-ejaculate emissions and confuse it with urine?

I am unable to find written information on some of the pre-pubescent changes for boys around sexuality. Can you recommend any books for both pre-teens and parents on this subject?

I guess the doctor doesn't know, and neither does anyone else who has viewed my sincere inquiry out of the 26 times.

We apologize for the delay, but this question had been long forwarded to another specialist to answer.
So as not to keep you waiting, no, it is not unusual for a child of this age to not know the difference, it is just a matter of ignorance on his side.
I have come across this website which you may find useful.
