Investigation of Vitamin D and Menstrual Cycles Trial
Henry Ford is partnering with the National Institutes of Health to better understand how vitamin D supplementation affects the menstrual cycle. The Investigation of Vitamin D and Menstrual Cycles Trial (inVitD) will look at how vitamin D might be able to help a woman have a regular cycle and get pregnant when she wants to. This information could help us recommend an amount of vitamin D for a healthy reproductive system. You, or women you know, may be eligible to join inVitD if you are a woman between the ages of 19 and 40, not currently planning to get pregnant, and not taking any hormones.
We plan to officially launch in January, but you can email us now at firstname.lastname@example.org – We will let you know when we’re ready to start enrolling!
Study of Ovarian Aging and Reserve
SELF participants have the opportunity to join the Study of Ovarian Aging and Reserve (SOAR). The purpose of SOAR is to study the ovarian health of young African-American women and determine how health behaviors, medical conditions and environmental factors impact ovarian reserve. Ovarian reserve helps determine the quantity of eggs a woman may have for future pregnancy. SOAR is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is being conducted in partnership between the University of Michigan and Henry Ford Health System.
