How is precocious puberty treated?
Treatment of precocious puberty depends on the type and cause. Sometimes a monthly injection is enough to block the process of puberty. However, sometimes there are underlying medical conditions causing the production of the hormones that are triggering puberty, such as hormone-secreting tumors. These need to be treated separately.
