My seven year old daughter's body has decided that she needs breasts!
We went to her ped today and he sent us for bone age xray and to check LH, FSH, and estradid levels at the lab. He, also said, that if these levels are high for her age, he would want to put her on medication to stop puberty.
From what I've gleaned from the internet, puberty is "normal" if it begins between 8-13. She will be 8 in January. Also, the only physical problem with early onset of puberty is being shorter than "what a child could have been". (according to the internet)
Do you know of any other health problems that early puberty brings?
Her breasts aren't OUT there yet....but they are beginning to develop...as in...aerola is noticabley enlarged.
Anyone's thoughts on this????
My family members were all early bloomers...I wore a regular bra in 4th grade...my 10 yo niece is blooming and menustrating.
So, should i let nature and her genetics take its course? or are there any "real" concerns for physical damage?
