Hi, My eight year old daughter is in precocious puberty. We have been talking with a specialist and our pediatrician and we are going ahead with treatment to halt the puberty process.
If you have a girl who has gone through precocious puberty or the treatment to put puberty to a halt can you please share your experiences with me?
Here is my main question: 1. How painful are the three month shots for the child? Obviously every child will react differently but was your experience. I am worried that getting the shots could be as traumatic as going through puberty early, especially when the child does not understand why are mommy and daddy making me get this really frightening and painful shot when I am not even sick.
Thanks for any information that you think would be helpful.
I believe you are making a big mistake. I realize that doctors endorse all the latest things, bniut there are unknown factors that could prove very harmful as she grows. beter to allow her to develop early, its not that unusual.
