Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION: To evaluate adolescent pregnancy and obstetric outcomes.
METHODS: This retrospective cohort study was performed by analysis of patient files and birth records of pregnant women who delivered in two cities in Southeast Anatolia, Turkey. Pregnant women aged 19 years old and younger were included in the study group. Women between 20 and 35 years of age constituted the control group.
RESULTS: The incidence of adolescent pregnancy during the study period was 11%. Birth weight and hemoglobin level were significantly higher in the control group (p < 0.05). The majority of the women in the study group delivered vaginally (p < 0.05). The incidence of preterm labor, intrauterine growth retardation, and stillbirth was significantly higher in the study group (p < 0.05). Adolescent mothers were most likely to have low birth weight and very low birth weight babies (p < 0.05).
CONCLUSION: Adolescent pregnancies were associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes in our study population. Possible grounds for such increase warrant further evaluation and discussion.
