INTRODUCTION: The teenage pregnancy can result in unfavorable maternal and fetal outcomes. Here, we aimed to assess maternal and fetal outcomes in adolescent and non-adolescent pregnant women.
METHODS: The study was conducted at Sabuncuoglu Serefeddin Teaching and Research Hospital of Amasya University. It is a retrospective, comparative study. The study included all of 272 adolescent pregnant women (aged 13-19 years) who presented for delivery between 2010 and 2015 and 269 non-adolescent pregnant women (aged 20-49 years) selected from those presented for delivery during same period.
RESULTS: The gestational age at birth was significantly higher in patients aged≤19 years than those aged≥20 years.
The rate of infants with birth weight>4000 g, height and head circumference, and Apgar scores at minute 1 and 5 were significantly lower in patients aged≤19 years than those aged≥20 years.

DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Adolescent pregnancy is a major risk factor for many health and social outcomes.
