The age of puberty is not set at 15. It varies depending upon the action of the pituitary gland, which is controlled or effected by many factors - some known and some unknown - some internal as well as external - and some intrinsic to the gland as well as the health of the individual.

As the pituitary ages and is triggered by other growth and health parameters, it begins secreting hormones which alter the balance of many other hormones - including testosterone and estrogen - as well as other steroids which produce the physical characteristics known as puberty.
