Totally overthinking this and it wont happen for years but for those of you with a LD dd what happens?Can you get medications to stop menstrual cycle or if your dd does have some conceptualisation of dealing with them how do you explain?
Is it like hormone injections? Maybe without the injections? Are they freely available? I remember a story about this (mother choosing to stop her dd's periods) in the news a few years ago where mother was getting some flack for this
My dd is v young but should be starting some hormone treatment soon which will keep this at bay - but then I've no idea if the intention is that treatment is stopped to then enable age appropriate development
good just the mention of shaving makes me feel really ugh <<lalala put it out my head>>
dd will be starting hormone treatment due to various endocrine probs. Completely clashing problems at that - treating the one thing could make the other worse. Not looking forward to it but the doing nothing option far scarier
I think some pills affect bone density too which worries me, but really the hormones must be very hard to deal with. According to dds consultant there is a higher chance of precocious puberty in children with brain damage! Eeek
This whole issue terrifies me, like Riven I have a dd who is in nappies (currently 8, and has hydrocephalus which I have read can result in early onset of puberty). DD has been quite 'sweaty' recently and I have been so worried about her periods starting early. I didn't realise there were drugs to minimalise them.
re precocious puberty - it will follow pattern of 'typical' development - eg sweating, breast development, pubes before periods. If you are concerned, notice any developments in this area ask paed to refer you to endocrinologist
V unlikely that you would get period without any other signs
Tho slightly off topic but not, did anyone's dd have period type bleeding at birth? Apparantly to do with transfer of hormones from the mother. We were told in NICU that this is fairly common but haven't actually heard of it happening to anyone else
while where on the subject (that im trying to block out of my mind), has anyone ever heard of a 5 yr old having body odour? my dd 5.3 armpits smell pretty bad of B.O, even just after a bath. she also lost her first tooth a few months back which i thought was very early- just came out while i was brushing her teeth btw she has asd.
