What is the outlook for precocious puberty?
The outlook for precocious puberty depends on the type and cause. Most of the time a monthly injection is all it takes to stop puberty in its tracks until the normal age of puberty, at which time the injections are stopped. However, sometimes precocious puberty can be caused by underlying medical problems, such as a genetic condition, or from hormone-secreting tumors in the body. In cases like these, the outcome for precocious puberty varies and depends on the exact cause and the individual's response to treatment.
