While changing her baby’s diaper, a mother discovered blood in it. The doctors’ conclusion left her speechless.
This story dates back to 2020. At the time, Sarah Regan changed her daughter, Birdie, as usual. But when you discover the contents of his diaper, it’s a shock. This one is full of blood. Panicked, the Australian quickly rushes to the emergency room. On the spot, the baby underwent a panoply of examinations. “She was 9 months old. She woke up one morning and I changed her diaper which was full of blood, and not just a little. There were a lot of them. I was worried she might have a kidney infection” she confides in DailyMirror. The child then undergoes a CT scan and the doctors discover that his bones are particularly developed for his age. The barely believable diagnosis ends up coming through.
Against all expectations, Sarah learns that her baby is in full early puberty : “The blood in her diaper matched her first period. I didn’t know what to think about it. I had no knowledge on the subject and had never heard of it before. She neither walked nor even spoke. » An extremely rare case that she must constantly explain to the teachers of her daughter : “I hate that it’s something we have to explain every time. However, I think that it’s important that people know. » The Australian is now doing everything possible to ensure that little Birdie has a normal childhood.
Consideration of hormone treatment
Since being diagnosed, Birdie has been regularly monitored by health professionals. the little one must in particular undergo hormonal tests, a CT scan and an ultrasound every six months. “It’s hard to tell if she has other symptoms like mood swings or menstrual pain because she’s too small. She didn’t no pubic hair or boobs as some children with this condition may have” admits Sarah, specifying that her child could start hormone treatment to delay the puberty. The mother, however, wants to be reassuring: her daughter is in good health.
