Does it matter if
has central precocious puberty?
Early puberty, or central precocious puberty (CPP), can have lasting complications beyond childhood
CPP can affect your child both physically and emotionally. As their parent, you probably feel alarmed and unsure about what to do if your child starts puberty earlier than you expected. If you notice any signs of puberty occurring too soon, speak with your child’s pediatrician as soon as possible. If diagnosed with CPP, the sooner a child starts treatment, the sooner the progression of puberty may be stopped.
