  • Klinefelter Syndrome
    Boys with this condition have an extra "X" chromosome that prevents them from developing normally during puberty. But hormone treatments, counseling, and other therapies can help boys develop more masculine traits and build their self-esteem.
  • Menstrual Problems
    For a girl, getting her first period is a sign of becoming a woman. But it can also be confusing, particularly if she encounters certain menstrual problems like irregular periods or PMS.
  • Miscarriages
    Miscarriages are common, and in most cases aren't preventable. But you can take steps to increase your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.
  • Precocious Puberty
    Precocious puberty - the onset of signs of puberty before age 7 or 8 in girls and age 9 for boys - can be physically and emotionally difficult for children and can sometimes be the sign of an underlying health problem.
  • Testicular Torsion
    This emergency condition causes extreme genital pain and usually requires surgery to save a boy's testicle. If your son has groin pain, get him to a doctor right away.

    Turner syndrome results from a chromosomal abnormality. Girls with TS usually are shorter than average and infertile due to early loss of ovarian function.
  • Vaginal Yeast Infections
    Vaginal yeast infections are common among growing girls, and can cause some pain and discomfort. They usually clear up quickly with proper medical treatment.
