Twenty-eight renal transplantation patients, aged 19-35 years, and 30 healthy women of reproductive age were enrolled into the study. Analyses revealed significant differences between study and control groups' midluteal serum P levels and between study and control groups' serum PRL levels. Although most renal transplantation patients have plasma estrogen and gonadotropin levels similar to those in healthy women, several problems, such as luteal phase defect, might affect transplant recipients.
