I am 16 years old and my voice still hasn't finished breaking

Resolved Question:

Hi. I am 16 years old and my voice still hasn't finished breaking, even though I have appeared to stop growing. For four years now (ever since puberty really) it has always been inconsistent. For example at times it is really croaky, other times squeaky or the words just don't sound. It has led to huge social anxiety over the years and finally I have decided enough is enough. I know most people say time is the cure but I have waited four years now and still nothing has happened. I would like to know if there is anything that can be done so I am able to talk normally again. I am prepared to take the most drastic of actions, as long as it results in a better outcome. Is there anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that can be done to sort this out? And if so am I right to be asking a endocrinologist, or should I be asking someone else, such as an ENT specialist or a speech therapist? Thank you.

Thanks for answering. That's said, I would love to know the exact detail/name of this potential cure, as well as the availability. I know this is not your preferred area but it would really mean a lot if you could let me know. Thanks again!

The therapy would simply be training you on voice modulationSo voice modulation therapy by any licensed speech therapist

(Sorry to continue to pester you but) is this a fast process, and is there any physical treatment involved? Thanks again.

This is not a fast process. It is like physical therapy for your voiceIt can take a few weeks
