Abstract

The pituitary hormone levels (follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormone levels) were higher in preterm newborn girls [0.15 (0.06–0.53) and 0.06 (0.05–0.08) (p = 0.0001); 0.03 (0.00–0.23) and 0.00 (0.00–0.03), (p = 0.003)]; the ovarian hormone levels (estradiol, anti-Müllerian hormone and inhibin В levels) were lower [0.44 (0.25–0.85) and 1.55 (1.06–1.84) (p = 0.0001); 2.73 (2.12–3.65) and 3.66 (2.59–5.0), (p = 0.026), 60.81 (37.19–128.80) and 104.75 (54.35–159.18), (p = 0.019), respectively].
