OCP vs Metformin on Ovarian Stromal Blood Flow in PCOS

This study is undertaken to compare the effects of treatment with commonly used OCP containing ethinylestradiol-cyproterone acetate and metformin in women with PCOS. Special attention will be paid to changes in ovarian stromal blood flow by using Color Doppler and they will be correlated with changes in hormonal parameters post-treatment.


Research of Exenatide for Overweight/Obese PCOS Patients With IGR

The investigators designed a randomized control trial to compare the therapeutic effects of exenatide, metformin and their combination for 3 months on reproductive and metabolic improvements of overweight/obese PCOS patients with impaired glucose regulation. The investigators plan to enroll 183 patients. Overweight and obese PCOS patients with newly diagnosed IGT; ...


Trial Comparing hCG Triggering Versus GnRH Agonist Triggering in PCOS Patients

In this study the investigators compare the traditional way of triggering with a new way in patients with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This to reduce the risque of Ovary Hyper Stimulation Syndrome (OHSS) in In Vitro Fertilization/ IntraCytoplastic Sperm Injection (IVF/ ICSI) treatment. The investigators also compare the number ...


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 ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Adrenal Androgens in Normal and Obese Girls After Suppression and Stimulation

We propose that the adrenal gland is the predominant source of the early morning rise in progesterone and testosterone which is more marked in early puberty. Specifically, we hypothesize that dexamethasone administration at 22:00 will be associated with a dampened progesterone and testosterone rise the subsequent morning in normal girls. ...

Phase N/A

Ovarian Contribution to Androgen Production in Adolescent Girls

Adolescent hyperandrogenemia can represent a forerunner to adult PCOS. Because adrenarche leads to an increase in adrenal androgen production during early puberty and since early puberty is associated with an overnight rise in testosterone that follows a similar time course to cortisol, we hypothesize that the adrenal gland is a ...

Phase N/A

Micronutrient Supplementation in PCO-syndrome

Introduction and scientific background: In the Western world, malnutrition and subfertility have become increasingly common problems affecting both men and women. A recent study showed that conforming to nutritional recommendations significantly increased the probability of a clinical pregnancy following vitro fertilisation (IVF)/ intracytoplasmatic sperm injection (ICSI). They included fruit, vegetables, ...

Phase N/A

Androgen Excess as a Mechanism for Adipogenic Dysfunction in PCOS Women

Aim 1. Compare differences in SC abdominal adipogenesis of lean PCOS women vs. age- and BMI-matched controls Subjects and clinical assessment: We will recruit 36 lean (18.5-25 kg/M2) PCOS subjects and 12 age- and BMI-matched controls. Subjects will complete a standardized questionnaire emphasizing menstrual dating, abnormal hair growth and acne. ...


Metformin for Ectopic Fat Deposition and Metabolic Markers in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS subjects will be screened by questionnaire for eligibility with the goal of recruiting 40 subjects who are 14 to 25 years, BMI between the 10th and 95th percentile for age (<20 years) and 18.5 - 29.9 kg/m2 (20 years or older), and at least two years post-menarche. Oligomenorrheic subjects ...


Suppression of Daytime and Nighttime Luteinizing Hormone Frequency by Progesterone

Studies will be performed in early pubertal (late Tanner 1 [estradiol level > 20 pg/ml] to Tanner 3, premenarcheal) girls with and without hyperandrogenemia (HA). After a potential subject is identified by the Pediatric, Teen, or Endocrine clinics, she will come to the CRU or alternate UVA clinical unit for ...
