Discriminant model possibility of occurrence pubertal uterine bleeding in girls depending on the characteristics of the structure and size of the body

Open access


In this paper, based on the performance characteristics of the structure and size of the body, and through step discriminant analysis, we have built an accurate and highly informative model of the possibility of pubertal uterine bleeding in a general population of girls aged from 14 to 18 years, and as broken down into groups 14-15 and 16-18 years. In the total group of girls of 14-18 years and notably in girls 16-18 years, indicators of skin thickness and fat fold are consistent with such a possibility, while in girls 14-15 years old, indicators of body diameter, width of distal epiphysis of long bones of the limbs and encompassing body size, show correlation with pubertal uterine bleeding. The largest contribution to discrimination, regardless of the age groups, is, however, the value of the fat component of body weight.
