The objective of the study was to assess short-term variability (STV) and other computerized cardiotocography (cCTG) parameters in relation to fetal sex during fetal antepartum surveillance. We retrospectively compared a total of 689 cCTG recordings: 335 from male fetuses and 354 from female fetuses. Analysis of cCTG results by fetal sex showed no significant difference in STV and other cCTG parameters using uni- and multivariate analysis. Our results suggest that fetal sex did not affect cCTG parameters in uncomplicated term singleton pregnancies and, therefore, does not need to be taken into account when interpreting cCTG recordings acquired under physiological conditions.
