I just saw on the news that a woman has been giving her daughter a shot since 7 years old to push off puberty. Her daughter is now 9. Is this something you would consider or do? I don't know if it's the same for boys, they didn't mention that.

I don't know how I feel about this at the moment but am interested in your answers.

 I have a hard time believing an insurance comapny would pay for those shots if there isn't a medical reason.

There's no way I woud do that. That could cause soo many problems. Unless it was medically necessary, of course.

If one of my children started showing signs before the age of 10 or 11 then yes, I would consider it! It was hard enough for me at age 12..... I can't imagine trying to explain all this to my almost 7 yr old any time in the next couple years!

I was told not to get pregant. My sil was told go to the library. She had no idea why she was bleeding the librarian told her.


Quoting SpurgeonMom:

It was hard for me because I was uneduated, I had the talk with my oldest so she is prepared at any time. That's all girls need is to be educated not monthly shots




Quoting misslady80013:

Yeah, that's right, maybe I should change the title. Wow! I didn't start until much later.





Quoting SpurgeonMom:

I read about it hell no. all its supposed to do it delay puberty. Girls are starting in 1st grade. My daughter is 7 and showing signs I started when I was 8. No I wouldn't give her a shot
