'My daughter, 5, grew breasts at two and started period aged four - now she's being forced to go through menopause'





A five-year-old girl who grew breasts aged two and started her period at four is now being forced to go through the menopause.
Little Emily Dover was still a toddler when she developed breast buds, strong body odour and cystic acne - to her parents' shock.
She started menstruating at just four years old and, within the past 12 months, has grown hair on her forehead, back and vagina.
Now, she is facing going through the menopause - as well as the same, often distressing, side effects that older women experience.
Her mum, Tam Dover, told Mirror Online her beautiful daughter is body conscious, aware that she is different to other children her age.
But heartbreakingly, the youngster can't understand why.
Recalling the moment Emily started menstruating, Tam, 41, said: "Because she has trouble toileting, she thought she had done a poo in her undies.
"We used panty liners and it didn't last more than a day."
She added: "She only had her period again the other day".
"She hasn't even had a chance to be a little girl.
"She's having to learn how to put panty liners on for menstruating."
When the youngster gets her period, she walks over to her devoted mum and dad, Matt, 40, and tells them that her "foo foo is bleeding".
"It's difficult to explain to her what is happening," said Tam. "She knows she's different, she knows she's much bigger than other children.
"She's very conscious of her body."
