The hypothesis is advanced that levels of ovarian hormonal function in adult women are associated with the tempo of growth and maturation in childhood and adolescence. Empirical data are presented documenting a correlation between menarcheal age and adult ovarian hormonal function both within and between populations. It is noted that this relationship is compatible with current understanding of the mechanisms underlying pubertal maturation of ovarian hormonal function. Functionally, such a… CONTINUE READING
