In brief: Rarely

Scfe (slipped capital femoral epiphysis) usually occurs during the pre-pubertal growth spurt, before a girl starts her periods.
It is more common with childhood obesity, and can be associated with hormonal disorders like underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) or hypogonadism - low levels of estrogen. Thyroid problems should be treated. Hypogonadism can cause infertility in later life.
