Does the penis stop growing once puberty ends? Is it possible for the penis to grow a little during puberty, then stop growing and begin to grow again while in puberty?

In most cases, the penis will reach its expected size (and stop growing) by the end of puberty. Puberty usually ends about 4 years after it starts. During puberty, the penis grows in length first, and then in width. The growth rate is different in every person, so if you think it stopped growing and then started again, that’s totally normal.
