My daughter who is 7 was recently diagnosed with Precocious Puberty. Her doctor has recommended she either get a once a month shot or a yearly implant called Supprelin. Does anybody have an experience with the implant? Her doctor feels she is way too early to be going into puberty and that it needs to be stopped for at least 2 years.

Hello, my 7 year old has been diagnosed with the same. The doctor has assured me that she is FINE, but that her body is changing, and it's normal, just early. The endo told me that its our choice to decide if 7 is "too early" and that we can opt for the hormone treatment--3 month shot or the implant. Which did you choose?

We are seeing a pediatric endocrinologist and she has been monitoring her for a year. We are worried that she will begin to menstruate and we want to prolong this from happening if possible.

Wow, medication would be a last resort. Most doctors take a wait and see approach. Was this an endocrinologist? If not, I would definetely see one. If so, I would seek a second opinion. My friend's daughter had some signs of puberty at age 6 and the endo. took a wait and monitor approach. Please keep in mind that most of the food our kids are eating nowdays is loaded with estrogen, which causes precocious puberty. I would definetely switch to stricktly organic food (most importantly meat, eggs, and MILK). Eliminate all soy from her diet as soy contains phytoestrogens (a plant version of estrogen). Also limit the amount of carbohydrates she is consuming (too much carbs can disturb the proper functioning of insulin which can also have an effect on sex hormones). Hope this helps.
