BABIES born premature are less likely to have sexual partners later in life, research suggests.

A study into 4.4million adults found those who’d been born before 37 weeks were 28 per cent less likely to form romantic relationships.

They were also 22 per cent less likely to become parents, said a team from the University of Warwick.

Those born very early — before 32 weeks — had even lower chances to have a sexual partner.


The scientists said more could be done in schools and by parents to encourage social interaction at a younger age.

Senior author Prof Dieter Wolke said: “As preterm children tend to be timid and shy, supporting them making friends and to be integrated into their peer group will help to find romantic partners, have sexual relationships and to become parents.

“All of which enhances well- being.”
