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.

    Hi All,My name is Elizabeth and I am reporter and graduate student of journalism at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.  I am currently pursuing a story on the present situation of precocious puberty in girls, specifically the decreasing age at which girls are entering puberty and the other health factors associated with precocious puberty, such as growth rate. I was inspired...

    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...

Pros and cons. Any inside...

    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...

    I am new to this site. So I will give a brief history of my daughter...My daughter was diagnosed with Precocious Puberty at age 7. She had hair under her armpits at age 4 and I was told it was just an overactive adrenal gland, nothing to worry about, but at about age 6, she started getting pubic hair. I was referred to a pediatric endo and they ran a bunch of tests and she was diagnosed at age 7...

    New to this but dealing

    My daughter was recently diagnosed with partial precocious puberty and has developed body odor and genital and underarm hair. I have been able to deal with this quite well for now and my daughter does not seem to be overly bothered by it as we have openly accepted this into our life and addressed any questions she may have.I am now worried with summer approaching that this will be a bigger issue...

I've never seen a group for this nor have I met anyone like me so I'm interested.I was diagnosed age 4 and bones fused before 8.I've called the hospital as an adult (to just let them know how I'm doing) and they tell me I am tall @ 5'4. Honestly would have no problem being shorter...

  • I would appreciate hearing form any PP suvivors who weren't treated. Or parents of PP children that weren't treated.
