Doctors from Wyong Hospital in Australia, diagnosed Emily Dover with central precocious puberty and Addison’s disease. Just as she is getting out of the toddler stage, the little girl is facing the menopause after she started her period at four-years-old.
Five-year-old Emily Dover has now become “very conscious of her body” after her breasts started to grow when she was a toddler.

Unfortunately Aggressive treatment for her rare condition has kick started her menopause with all its side effects. Emily’s mother Tam, 41,  is terrified her little daughter, who weighs 98 lbs, will always be bullied for her large size.

When docs from the pediatric Acute Care Unit in Wyong Hospital, Australia tested Emily, they discovered her hormones were as though she was a pregnant woman.
Emily was diagnosed with central precocious puberty and Addison’s disease, which means her adrenal glands do not produce enough steroid hormones.
Her mum, Tam Dover, is frustrated that she “hasn’t had a chance to be a little girl”.
Emily has been forced to learn how to put “pantyliners on for menstruating” at such a young age, while dealing with strong body odour and cystic acne.

At four months old, Emily was the size of a one-year-old, although she was born at a normal and healthy 10lbs.
“She continued to grow,” her mum said. “At four months old were dressing her in clothes for a 12 to 18-month-old baby.”
But after her first “normal” week, Emily struggled to sleep and was under a great amount of pain.
The mum finds it difficult to explain what is happening to her, even though little Emily has now become fully aware that she is different.
Recalling the moment Emily started her period, Tam said: “Because she has trouble toileting, she thought she had done a poo in her undies.
“We used pantyliners and it didn’t last more than a day.”

Emily was bullied at daycare and now her mum fears she may be the “different kid” at her new primary school.
Tam said: “There are so many aspects of her life, that thankfully, she is too young to be completely aware of that are going to impact her.
“That impact will be when she starts school next year, and will have to face being the kid that is so different to others.”
She is due to start hormone replacement therapy, which requires her to receive an injection every three months.
Tam set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the “astronomical” costs of her daughter’s treatments and medical care.
