Precocious Puberty Support Group

Early pubic hair, breast, or genital development may result from normal but early maturation or from several abnormal conditions. Early puberty which is normal in every way except age is termed idiopathic central precocious puberty. It may be partial or transient. If your child is going through early puberty, share your experiences here and get support.

    How to choose between treatment options?

    2
    Hi all - I am new to this group.  I joined because my 8.5 yo daughter was just diagnosed with CPP.  She is Tanner stage 2.  Her bone age is about 10-11 and her hormone levels are consistent with CPP.  We will do an MRI soon to rule out any structural issues with the pituitary gland.  Once that is r/o, we will proceed with treatment because I would like to slow down onset of puberty and give...
  • Hi,I am the mom of an almost 11 yo DD who did the Lupron shots for 3 years and is healthy and amazing and now approaching puberty at the normal time.  She had no side effects! So I hope that is reassuring to some of you.  I am happy to answer any questions.  That DD had shown signs of puberty just after her 7th birthday.  But my little daughter started signs of puberty after 8 and the...

    My 8 year old daughter

    So my 8 year old daughter is in puberty. Her thyroid is great, but her growth plates are that of a 11 year old. Her doctor suggested the supprelin implant. My issue is i have read that other parents have seen major weight gain, horrible PMS, and added stress. My daughter has an attitude already, And has already started developing. Needless to say my wife and I are a little stressed. Does anyone...

    Scared

    our 8 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with CPP. She had a bone age 5 months ago and it was 91/2. Last week it was 11 1/2. They are recommending injections. My husband and I are at odds when it comes to medication. He does not want her to have them. I want all of the information and want to make an informed decision for our child. If we do the injections she could be 5'7. If we do nothing...

    Cost of Supprelin

    7
    Hi, for those of you using supprellin what was your cost? I received a bill for 85,000.00 stating 79,000.00 was the medication. We are currently having it audited but so far they seem to think its correct. Fortunately we have good insurance but this does not sound right to me. How could anyone afford this year to year? Any help would be appreciated!

Honestly would have no problem being shorter...

    Wondering

    Hello!  My almost 8 yr. old daughter has had body odor and acne for well over a year.  She is also crazy tall for her age (and no history of being tall on either side of the family - quite the opposite, in fact!) and is often mistaken for a 4th or 5th grader.  When I asked her dr. at her previous wellness check up, she said not to worry and to just have my daughter bathe more frequently, but...

    My daughter is 6 years and 10 months old. Her bone age is 8 years 10 months. She has some breast development and pubic hair. She also has terrible mood swings. I wish I had recognized an issue before now. I have read extensively on the treatment of PP and I want to reach out to parents that have denied treatment and parents who have done the injections or implant. Pros and cons. Any inside...
