One of the signs of puberty in girls is the growth of breasts. Puberty is a time when a child experiences growth into adulthood, usually occurs in girls occurring at the age of 11 years and in boys at the age of 12 years. But premature puberty can also occur and is known as early puberty.
Symptoms experienced by children who experience early puberty that occurs before the age of 8 years in girls and before the age of 9 years in boys. These symptoms include:
The existence of zits. Rapid body growth. Body odor like adults Hair growth on the genitals and armpits. In boys it is usually characterized by: heavier sounds, growing mustache, testicles, penis, or enlarged scrotum. In girls: first menstruation, breast growth. Regarding the danger or not early puberty this condition does not need to worry too much. Because most cases of early puberty in children do not experience problems when they are adults, as long as getting adequate therapy and support.
Therefore to make sure you should consult this matter with your pediatrician doctor first. To diagnose early puberty certainly requires a more straightforward interview regarding the health history of children and families to find the cause of early puberty, but it also needs to be done a direct physical examination and examination of hormone levels if needed. And other examinations in the form of radiological examinations such as MRI of the head, to look for certain medical conditions such as abnormalities in the brain that can trigger this early puberty.
The aim of early puberty is to keep the child growing normally until adulthood, especially in height. Several ways can be done if indeed there are no other medical problems found by giving a drug in the form of an injection of leupolide. These injections can inhibit the development of the subsequent puberty process. These injections are given every month until the child reaches normal puberty. But if medical problems are found as a cause of early puberty, of course handling will be done based on the basic cause of the early puberty.
