Early Puberty

Puberty

Early or “precocious” puberty is when a child’s body starts to develop too soon.

But what is “too soon”?

The “normal” age range for the onset of puberty for girls, is between 8-12.

However a study by Dr. Marcia Herman-Giddens shows how the “normal” age of the onset of pubery has changed dramatically over a relatively short timespan.

1860 – 16.6 years.
1920 – 14.6 years
1950 – 13.1 years
1980 – 12.5 years
2010 – 10.5 years

And now 2018 – 8 years

Given the fact that us women only have a certain number of eggs, it would stand to figure that the earlier we start our periods, the earlier we finish them.

And as many women now choose to wait until their late 30s and early 40s to start their families, this is going to have an impact on our girls in the future.

This is something I’m seeing more and more of. Homeopathy can halt this and/or slow down the process.

If your child is maturing physically, quicker than you are confortable with, contact me.

I can help.

    Good morning
    I have two daughters ages 9yrs they are twins.And they started puberty at 7,6month which I complain but doctors said its nothing to worry about.
    Now they are nine and the doctors said the puberty has advanced that I should let nature take it course.
    I have searched the internet to find a cure for my girls cause they are still young.
    Please anyway you can be of help.

    Thank you.

      Hi there. It’s not possible to reverse early puberty once it has started but it is possible to slow down it’s progression with the right hormonal supports.

I had to take a pregnancy test at Christmas...yip indeedy. I skipped my first period - I'm 46 and a half (a big half), it was going to happen sooner or later. And I was happy about that. Even though I felt a bit bloated and a bit PMSey...new word there. But I'm at the...
