Female delayed puberty is a condition in which a girl does not experience the normal physical changes associated with puberty. This includes the development of secondary sexual characteristics such as breast development, pubic hair growth, and the onset of menstruation. Delayed puberty can be caused by a variety of medical conditions, including genetic disorders, hormonal imbalances, and chronic illnesses. Treatment for delayed puberty depends on the underlying cause and may include hormone therapy, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle modifications.
