    ABSTRACT: The glans clitoris is a target organ that is responsive to androgenic stimuli and enlarges throughout life. The size of the glans clitoris can be quantitated by determining the clitoral index (CI), which is the product of the sagittal and transverse diameters of the glans. Four hundred ten patients, ranging in age from 17 to 35 years, were examined. Ninety-five percent of 249 normal women had a CI less than 35 mm2. Of 85 patients with clitoromegaly (CI greater than 35 mm2) in addition to at least 1 other clinical sign of excess adrogenic stimulation, 53 (62%) had abnormally high values for either or both total serum testosterone and 17-ketosteroid levels. The CI is a useful bioassay for the clinical recognition of excess androgenic stimulation.

    ABSTRACT: An approach to a standardized analysis of menstrual bleeding patterns is presented. The method utilizes a prospective bleeding record and characterizes the menstrual pattern of a woman according to bleeding and nonbleeding events without imposing definitions of cycle or intermenstrual bleeding. Further, the analysis is done within a time reference period similar to life-table analysis, with the experience of each woman having equal value. The method is thus applicable to the study of menstrual patterns of both normal, untreated women, and women on experimental contraceptive regimens in which expected bleeding patterns are disrupted. The methodology is aided by computer programs to process the data and by the use of standard statistical packages for comparison of output data of different groups.
