In Vitro Fertilization Impact on Metabolic Parameters

Numerous factors predispose women to develop pregnancy-related complications, these include gestational diabetes (GDM), pre-pregnancy obesity, advanced maternal age (> 35 years) and gestational age, abnormal weight gain during pregnancy, family history of diabetes, PCOS and low parity. Evidenced-based studies reported that women with PCOS have a significantly higher risk of ...

Phase N/A

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Exercise

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder characterized by oligo-ovulatory menstrual dysfunction, androgen excess and polycystic ovaries. It affects ten to fifteen percent of reproductive-age women and has been associated with complications in reproductive, metabolic and cardiovascular health. Current Clinical Practice Guidelines suggest exercise and weight loss for ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Sciences Research Proposal- The Effect of Physical Exercise on PCOS Overweight Female Adolescents

30 teenage and young adult females, aged 10-25 years old. The minimum hormonal age for inclusion is menarche. Overweight- with a Body Mass Index (BMI) percentage above 85%, divided into 2 groups: 15 girls with diagnosed PCOS, and 15 girls without diagnosed PCOS, without any other medical comorbidities. Followed at ...

Phase N/A

Adipose Tissue Function and Response to Exercise Training in Women With and Without Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

The primary aim of this trial is to investigate adipose tissue function in women with and without polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is a common endocrine disorder in young women. The pathogenesis behind PCOS is complex and only partly understood, and deeper mechanistic insight is needed. Insulin resistance is a ...

Phase N/A

Improving Reproductive Function in Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome by High Intensity Interval Training

The aim is to investigate whether 16 weeks of high intensity interval training, followed by 36 weeks of home-based exercise, will improve menstrual frequency in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) compared with a non-exercising control group.

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Characterization of Ovarian Follicle Dynamics in Women With Amenorrhea

In the ovaries, eggs rest in fluid filled sacs called follicles. When follicles grow they form small fluid-filled cysts that can be easily seen when we use ultrasound to view the ovaries. In women with regular menstrual cycles, groups of 10 to 20 follicles grow and regress at 2 or ...

Phase N/A

Nutritional and Metabolic Correlates of Ovarian Morphology in Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

In the ovaries, eggs rest in fluid filled sacs called follicles. When follicles grow they form small fluid-filled cysts that can be easily seen when we use ultrasound to view the ovaries. In women with regular menstrual cycles, groups of follicles grow and regress 2 to 3 times during their ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasonographic Evaluation of Anovulatory Disorders in Lean and Overweight Women

This study is being conducted in order to determine if ultrasound features of the ovaries can be used to reliably diagnose different types of anovulatory disorders in women across all body types. The study will also try to establish whether ultrasound features of the ovary can reflect the degree of ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Spironolactone on Adrenal or Ovarian Androgen Production in Overweight Pubertal Girls With Androgen Excess

This study will test whether spironolactone administration can ameliorate androgen (male hormone) overproduction in overweight pubertal girls with androgen excess. The investigators hypothesize that reduction in P450c17alpha overactivity and androgen receptor blockade by 12 weeks of spironolactone administration will improve androgen levels after adrenal stimulation testing with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) ...

Phase N/A

Go Girls! Fitness Support Group Intervention Effectiveness Study

Adolescent girls have low participation in physical activity compared to boys at all ages. Interventions to improve physical activity levels in children have shown greatest success when targeted to low-active adolescent girls and employ strategies to enhance adolescents' enjoyment of physical activity. Go Girls! is a new dance-based patient fitness ...
