History of preeclampsia (P=0.02), Hypertension (P=0.001), and body mass index (BMI) (P=0.001) were significantly higher in the preeclampsia group than in the control group. Also, there was no significant relationship between history of diabetes mellitus, infertility, twin and preeclampsia (P<0.05).
