In newborn females, plasma testosterone is low and does not significantly change over the first 24 h after birth. In contrast, in newborn males, plasma testosterone more than doubles during the first 2 h after birth and then falls rapidly to remain relatively low for the remainder of the 24 h period after… CONTINUE READING
