Abstract

The objective of this study was to compare the rates of initiating sexual activity between a group of 13- through 18-year-old females placed on hormonal therapy for medical indications and a group of 13- through 18-year-old females not on hormonal therapy for medical indications. Although the number of participants was low, there was no statistically significant difference in the rates of sexual debut between the groups.
