For the past 50 years, researchers have known that girls who get their periods earlier than their peers are more psychologically vulnerable as teenagers. They have more frequent and severe mental health problems, from depression to anxiety, eating disorders, delinquency, substance abuse and failing or dropping out of school. But next to nothing was known about how long those problems last.

December 22, report. The findings contradict current theories that the brain matures much earlier. Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, a neuroscientist with the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London, said until around a decade ago many scientists had "pretty much assumed that the human brain stopped developing in early childhood," but recent research has found that many regions of the brain continue to develop for a long time afterwards.
Design: Retrospective analysis to determine the size of follicles on day of trigger contributing most to the number of mature oocytes retrieved using generalized linear regression and random forest models applied to data from IVF cycles — in which either hCG, GnRHa, or kisspeptin trigger was used. Main outcome measure: Follicle sizes on the day of trigger most likely to yield a mature oocyte. Results: Follicles 12—19 mm on the day of trigger contributed the most to the number of oocytes and mature oocytes retrieved. Comparing the tertile of patients with the highest proportion of follicles on the day of trigger 12—19 mm, with the tertile of patients with the lowest proportion within this size range, revealed increases of 4.

When your child shifts from being a year-old kid to a year-old adolescent, you're likely to see some interesting changes. Your year-old will be sensitive to their changing bodies and take notice of the changes in their peers. Your teen may worry that he's different or may wonder if he's abnormal because he doesn't have chest hair or because he hasn't hit a growth spurt yet. This can be hard for parents because your young teen's worries aren't always sensible, but they are real worries to your teen.
