What you need to know:

  • Puberty can start any time from eight to 14 years

  • Rarely, puberty may also start early if there is a problem with the ovaries

Dr Flo,
My daughter is eight years old but her breasts have started growing. Is this a medical condition and what should I do to slow down this process?
