Doctors Planning to Use Depo-Provera to Combat Early Puberty in Children

new study released by the American Academy of Paediatrics states that boys in America are reaching puberty at an earlier age than is considered standard 30 to 40 years ago. Which translates to a full 6 months to 2 years earlier than the medical community has previously acknowledged as normal.  Marcia Herman-Giddens, lead author and adjunct professor of maternal and child health for the University of North Carolina School of Global Public Health, (GPH) states that this comprehensive study identified the age that boys are forming enlarged testes which directly correlates to their sperm production and found that:

• African-American boys hit puberty on average by 9 years old
• Caucasian boys hit puberty on average by 10 years old
• Hispanic boys hit puberty on average by 10 years old
