In structural abnormalities, in that 11 (11%) had mild prevalence, 61 (61%) had moderate prevalence and 28 (28%) had severe prevalence of structural abnormalities. Thestructural abnormalities had the highest mean value and standard deviation are 2.1700 and 0.60394 respectively. The hormonal abnormalities had the lowest mean value and standard deviation are 2.0900 and 0.55222 respectively.
