One of the most common concerns about precocious puberty in girls is the potential for adverse psychological consequences. Literature to date has linked earlier-than-average puberty to higher rates of depression [2–6], anxiety [2, 6, 7], substance abuse [3, 8], delinquency, and criminality than in girls with on-time development. Special attention should be given to girls with precocious puberty before age six and boys with precocious puberty before age nine. Of particular concern is precocious puberty in girls, as it can have very negative or damaging psychological effects from criticism in public or in social groups. While puberty is a difficult time for most children, it is particularly challenging for children with central precocious puberty (CPP).
CPP is the consequence of early activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary -gonadal (HPG) axis, resulting in puberty onset before age 8 in girls and 9 in boys. In precocious puberty, girls show breast enlargement, pelvis expansion, hair growth, and commence menstruation.4Social interests in precocious puberty is gradually increasing because precocious puberty is known to cause short stature due to early closure of the growth plate.1In addition, faster physical development is regarded as bizarre by children of the same age, and it. If puberty occurs too early, they may still be completing some of the necessary psychological development of childhood when puberty arrives. As a result, early-maturing girls may become overwhelmed by the stressors of adolescence and the many changes that accompany puberty.
As a result, early puberty in girls has a negative impact. Girls are 10 times as likely to have central precocious puberty as boys. Genetics. Sometimes, genetic mutations that trigger the release of sex hormones can lead to precocious puberty.
Puberty is a complicated process both physically and psychologically. We are familiar with the symptoms: breast buds, first menstrual cycle, facial and pubic hair, deeper voice, and body odor. If any of this occurs in a girl before the age of eight, and in a boy before the age of nine, it is known as central precocious puberty (CPP.).
Central Precocious puberty (CPP) This type of precocious puberty represents true pubertal development due to the earlier maturation and activation of the HPG axis. Most of the time, the common cause in females is idiopathic, and in males, there is usually an underlying pathology. Other risk factors for precocious puberty include: obesity. ingestion or exposure to products containing testosterone or estrogen, such as birth control pills, or. Background: Concerns about psychological distress are often used to justify treatment of girls with precocious puberty, but there is little evidence to support these concerns.
The extent to which psychological problems are associated with central precocious puberty (CPP) compared with other forms of early puberty in girls has likewise not been established.
