My daughter has AHC, she is 16 and living currently without her monthlys, and her body is not developing as quickly as her friends. Is there something that can be done by her mom and I, or is it all about the cortisol meds?

her self esteem only....She is beautiful, but she is very athletic, so athletic that sometimes it's intimidating to boys. I'm only wanting the best for her.

I am ok with natures time, but I know if her inconsistent taking of meds adds to slow development, she would be more consistent. I really don't think she knows enough about her condition to look for herself, or maybe denial may play a part, In any case, we thought her deficincies may warrant extra estrogen...Is this a possibility, or are we just trying to rush things?

she was diagnosed at birth, and she hasn't been consistent with her meds. But she is underdeveloped from appearances....she is small busted. I would like to know if that is just part of the symptoms, or just waiting for nature?
