My girl is growing into a little lady, but she doesn't know it yet! We are reaching the time for her to have her first period, but she is developmentally approximately 4 yrs old, and will not understand no matter how simply I put it to,her. Her Pediatrician thinks we have a year, her teachers disagree. Has anyone researched any of the bc at length? We have never medicated her before, unless she was sick. So we're mostly not real comfortable with this idea, but I'm feeling like this time it could be a good thing. Our only other option, would be to keep her out of school that week or so, and that will only be if the school allows. She attends a public school. I really need some feedback! I would be grateful for anyone who might help us !
