HAVE YOU MISSED THREE OR MORE PERIODS IN A ROW? (310) 423-9666

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.

TO PARTICIPATE YOU NEED TO:
• Have missed three or more consecutive menstrual cycles
• Be between 18 and 40 years old
• Not be on hormonal contraceptives
• Not be pregnant or breast-feeding

Each woman will undergo blood draws and blood vessel function testing, using a noninvasive ultrasound and tonometer. You will also 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. $300 compensation upon completion of study.

If you or someone you know is interested, please call (310) 423-9666 and reference
code HYPO E.
