In brief: Puberty side effects
The worst side effect of early puberty is usually height compromise.
Depending on the cause an abnormality of the pituitary gland might be responsible. In addition, there is evidence that early estrogen release could increase risks of breast cancer.

In brief: Studies show
That girls who develop precocious puberty have higher risks of being sexually active earlier and even with increased risk of unwanted pregnancy as shown in several studies that came out if europe (britain).
That is one reason early identification and treatment intervention if warranted is an important aspect of managing sexual precocity in girls.
