The Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute invites you to participate in a new study designed to evaluate the heart health of young women who have missed their period for three months or more, resulting in low estrogen levels. We know that low estrogen levels are not healthy in young women, and we want to see if it will affect your heart health in the future.
• Have missed three or more consecutive menstrual cycles
• Be 18 years of age or older
• Not be on hormonal contraceptives
• Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
Each woman will undergo blood draws and blood vessel function testing using noninvasive ultrasound and a tonometer. You also will be given an estrogen patch or a placebo patch, which will help to evaluate blood vessel function. These results will be compared to young women who have regular monthly periods and older women who are recently postmenopausal.
These tests are free of charge to all participants, and you will receive your laboratory evaluations. Parking will be validated, and $300 compensation will be given upon completion of the study.
If you or someone you know is interested, please call 310-423-9666 and reference code HypoE.
