Study Description

The Center for Research in Reproduction seeks healthy women (18-30 years old) with normal regular menstrual cycles for a research study about women’s hormones. The purpose of the study is to see if giving progesterone to normally cycling adult women during one phase of their menstrual cycle (called the follicular phase) will result in other hormone changes in their bodies. Participants must not have taken contraceptive pills or any other hormonal medication for 2 months prior to and during the study. Study involves 3-5 short outpatient visits and two 12-hour daytime outpatient visits at the Clinical Research Unit at UVa over 6 months. Additional short visits may be required to repeat blood draws. Participants will also take one dose of progesterone. Study-related exams, tests, and medications provided free of charge. For more information please contact pcos@virginia.edu
