Depends: It depends on how precocious and whether there is an endocrine cause that requires medical attention. You need to see a physician.

It shouldn't: Depending on the cause, there shouldn't be any impact. Only mccune albright syndrome requiring ovarian surgery in some for cysts might have some effect.

Maybe: Early puberty can happen for a variety of reasons, and the reasons tend to be different in boys than in girls. In boys it tends to be more worrisome, more frequently in girls it tends to be benign. The long term effects, if any, depend entirely on the cause. A child with precocious puberty should always undergo an evaluation to determine the cause.

Not if you had care: If you received appropraite endocrine care as a child it shuld not affect you as an adult. If care was delayed you could have short stature and osteoporosis.
