Basic Study Information
Purpose:Location: Strong Fertility Center, 500 Red Creek Dr. Suite 220, Rochester, NY 14623
This study aims to characterize the affect of age and weight on the size and shape
of ovaries. We will compare ovary size and shape in women of varying ages and body
sizes. You are eligible if you are female, age 18-45. We plan to recruit up to 120
women with regular menstrual cycles and up to 120 women with histories of Polycystic
Ovary Syndrome. This study is being conducted in collaboration with Dr. Lujan’s lab

Additional Study Details
Individuals interested in participating in the study will be invited for an initial
interview with Dr. Kathleen Hoeger and a member of the Research Team at the Strong
Fertility Center to gain information about their health and eligibility to participate.
If a participant is eligible and informed consent is obtained, medical, OB/GYN and
family history and current medications will be obtained. Anthropometric, vitals, and
hirsutism (Ferriman-Gallwey) assessments will be conducted. A blood sample will be
obtained (about 10 mL; 2 tsp) to measure reproductive hormone levels. A 3- dimensional
transvaginal ultrasound scan will also be performed to provide images of the ovaries
and uterus. In the event that there is sonographic evidence of impending or recent
ovulation, the participant will be asked to return to the research center during the
early follicular phase for a repeat ultrasound and blood draw. Total study participation
lasts 45-60 minutes, and participants will receive $25 upon study completion.
