The new “Guidance Statement: Hormone Supplementation for Pubertal Induction in Girls” are now complete and available on the British Society Paediatric Endocrinology & Diabetes [BSPED].
I would like to thank Dr’s Debbie Matthews, Louise Bath, Wolfgang Hӧgler, Avril Mason, Mars Skae & Arlene Smyth (BSPED Working Group) and all the other doctors who have worked so hard to look at this issue for us. It has been a lot of work and we very much appreciate all their efforts.
If you are being asked to cut a 10mcg of Ethinyloestradiol Tablet in 4 to induce your daughter’s puberty please contact me. I have now spoken to the company who produce the medication and this should not be happening.
By reading the guidance statement you will see there are a number of options available to you for your daughter. Please discuss them with your medical specialist. Puberty is a difficult time for our girls. We don’t need to add to that with problems of accessing the correct medication.
