Study Description

The Center for Research in Reproduction seeks normal weight and overweight adolescents girls ages 7 to 17 for a study examining the role the ovaries play in pubertal hormone changes and production of excess male hormones, potentially leading to PCOS. Volunteers will come to the Clinical Research Unit for a physical exam and screening blood tests, followed by two outpatient visits (or one overnight stay and one outpatient visit) for sampling of hormones. One or two doses of two study medications are given. Parental permission is required. Study-related tests and drugs are provided at no charge. For more information please contact: pcos@virginia.edu
