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 her the best chance to reach her maximum estimated adult height. My question is: what factors should I consider in deciding between the quarterly lupron injections and the implant? My research shows that both have side effects. Out ped endo says they see some weight gain and soreness at injection/implant site as the main side effects. She feels both are safe to use. However, I see many people on sites like this complain about headaches, significant weight gain and other troubling side effects. My daughter is underweight and we are an active, vegan family, so I am not too worried about some weight gain. She already has some bad mood swings (I think due to the puberty hormones), and I was hoping treatment might actually help with that. Our dr thinks she would need treatment for 12-18 months. How did you all decide between 1 or the other? Any tips/advice appreciated. Thank you all so much!
Hello, everyone! This is my first support group for my acne difficulties, and I hope that this journal will help me a little bit. To start off I will tell yall about my self, I am a 20-year-old college student and have been suffering from severe acne since my early middle school years. There have been many products I have used over the past several years that seemed to either reduce my acne...
I am twelve and I thought that I was just in my awkward stage, but I have had horrible annoying acne for over three years now. And of course you don't want to have people staring at your face, so I put on makeup making it worse.
