Official Trial Title
Suppression of daytime and nighttime LH frequency by progesterone in early pubertal girls with and without hyperandrogenemia(JCM024)
Study Description

The Center for Research in Reproduction is looking for healthy girls, ages 7-14, to participate in a reproductive hormone study. In this study, we want to learn more about the hormone changes that occur during normal puberty. By learning more about normal puberty, we may be able to help girls who develop hormone problems during puberty.

The study involves taking progesterone and having blood drawn during outpatient and inpatient visits. There are up to 3 study visits in total, including one 22-hour overnight admission to the Clinical Research Unit. The other visits include one 1-3 hour screening visit and one 15-minute outpatient visit.

Study-related exams, tests, and medications are provided free of charge. For more information please contact pcos@virginia.edu
