Lockdown stress, many UK girls now have early puberty

Daily Mail -

"Record numbers of young girls are hitting puberty too soon - with some as young as age four.

The number of times girls were seen at hospital for cases of 'precocious puberty' increased to 2,032 last year, up from 1,510 previously.

Of these, 79 children had not even reached their fifth birthdays, NHS Digital hospital data showed.

The average age for girls to begin puberty is 11 - but it is normal for it to begin at any point between ages eight and 13.

Early puberty is defined as when girls show signs of puberty before the age of eight.

Boys hitting puberty early was far less common.

An Italian medical study pinned Covid lockdowns as a potential trigger.

Dr Mohamad Maghnie, who led the Italian study, said: 'The role of stress, social isolation, increased conflicts between parents, economic status ... There is an evolutionary hypothesis that, when girls are very stressed, they have their period early in order to reproduce and protect the future of the species.'"
