Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


I just noticed that my 7 1/2 year old daughter has pubic hair, just about 4 hairs, she has none under her arms. I heard that she could also start having her period, could this be a concern??
    
The development of public hair before the age 8 without other signs of puberty is called premature pubarche. This is usually an innocuous condition, sometimes caused by hormones released from the adrenal glands and is more common in African-American girls.

Most girls begin menstruating between the ages of 9 and 16. The average age is 12 or 13. The best way to know that your daughter may soon start her period is to look for other signs. The first is typically the beginning of breast growth, including “breast buds. Within the year underarm hair and a whitish discharge from the vagina are signs that the first period probably is not far away.

If you have any concerns that your daughter is developing prematurely, consult with her pediatrician. Thanks for your question.
