'My daughter is going through menopause at age five'

'My daughter is going through menopause at age five'”

At four months old, she had grown to the size of a one-year-old and by the age of two she began growing breasts and developing acne. Her mom Tam said: "She hasn't even had a chance to be a little girl".

Emily, who weighs 44 kilograms, also endures bullying at playschool for her size, leaving her parents terrified she will always be seen as the "different kid" at school.

Emily has been forced to learn how to put "pantyliners on for menstruating" at such a young age, while dealing with strong body odour and cystic acne.

A five-year-old girl who grew breasts at just two years old and started her period at four is going through the menopause.

"Something was very wrong with our little girl".

When Emily first started her period, she thought she had soiled herself.

Emily's parents react calmly to the youngster's symptoms in an attempt to encourage her to do the same.

Yet at just one week old she started crying out in pain and struggling to sleep. 'She knows she's different, she knows she's much bigger than other children.

Emily, who now weighs around seven stone, was born 'in the most normal of condition, and was flawless in every way'.

It wasn't until she was four weeks old - when she grew a whopping 4cm in a week - that her parents noticed anything different.

Her mum, Tam Dover, told Mirror Online her handsome daughter is body conscious, aware that she is different to other children her age, but can't understand why.

Now, in order to ease the pain and discomfort of Emily's conditions, the only option is forcing her body into menopause with three-monthly hormone replacement injections that cost nearly $1500 per dose.

Emily was then referred to Wyong Hospital's Pediatric Acute Care Unit where tests revealed that her hormone levels were comparable to that of a pregnant woman.

Emily Dover suffers from Addison's Disease, an adrenal gland disorder that affects hormonal development. "We work fulltime each and each time Emily is sick, it is days off, mostly without pay, as we have exhausted all of our leave entitlements". We simply don't have the funds to provide everything that Emily needs treatment wise, ' she continued.
