I was wondering if a teen has low estrogen levels will they develop all the womanly qualities once the estrogen is introduced?

I was wondering if a teen has low estrogen levels will they develop all the womanly qualities once the estrogen is introduced?

Low Estrogen: Estrogen levels vary throughout the menstrual cycle. If periods are absent, a good first step is to check for pregnancy, then try Progesterone withdrawal. If a bleed occurs, estrogen is likely ok. If no bleed, FSH levels are checked. If high, consider ovarian failure, if low hypothalamic hypogonadism due to stress, exercise, anorexia, or genetics could be the cause. Bcpills may be advised. ...Read more

When babies have acne will they most likely have acne in their teens?

Possibly: Hello, What a great question! While some experiences do predict future health issues, in this case it's not necessarily going to predict future acne.

I read the drug Lupron (leuprolide) can be given to make young women grow taller. Will it also cause height to grow in adult women (over 35) if taken for IUIs?

No: Lupron (leuprolide) is typically given to girls in cases of precocious puberty to prevent their growth plates from fusing too early, prolonging their period of growth. Once you are past the age of normal pubertal growth, Lupron (leuprolide) has no effect on height. ...Read more

Growth hormones and/or steroids for women. Do they have different effects than on men?

Growth hormones and/or steroids for women. Do they have different effects than on men?

Yes: Growth hormone is never a good idea for any gender for athletic performance if you do not have a deficiency. As any endocrinologist will tell you, people with high growth hormone levels are not sporty, fit people -- they are generally very ill and need surgery or medications. Anabolic steroids in women will cause facial hair, voice deepening, balding, and enlargement of the clitoris. ...Read more

See your doctor: True gynecomastia with breast tissue in males is rare. It can be a side effect of taking certain drugs or having a hormonal imbalance. I would see your doctor to make sure this is breast tissue and to check the chemical and hormonal balance in your body. You may also want to check your weight, as that is a more common cause of gynecomastia in males. ...Read more

Height: height is unlikely to increase after age 21. In very rare circumstances, there have been people who get taller after age 21 years. Don't count on it though.

Since people who are overweight generally have less testosterone, will they develop late or less?

Since people who are overweight generally have less testosterone, will they develop late or less?

Yes, often: It's complicated but what happens in normal weight boys at puberty is a huge surge of testosterone to make their penis and testicles enlarge, muscles and hair to grow and voice to deepen. In obese kids, a lot of the testosterone made gets converted to estrogen by an enzyme made in fat cells. The more fat cells, the higher estrogen levels and this lowers the bioavailable testosterone. ...Read more

Nose: Have you ever pondered why the fingers fit so perfectly up the nose? As soon as we get hand eye coordination, everything goes to the face. Perhaps that form of behavior was a protective mechanism that helped keep nostrils clean. Kids do gross things. They're curios and the younger ones still have oral tendencies. It will stop before they start middle school! ...Read more
