Evaluation of Women With Endocrine and Reproductive-Related Conditions


Brief description of study

This study was designed to allow inpatient and outpatient evaluation of women with a variety of reproductive and endocrine-related disorders for purposes of research and physician education.

The evaluations may include ultrasound examinations, blood, saliva, and/or urine samples. In some cases, specific laboratory or X-ray studies will be performed to confirm the diagnosis or assist in the treatment of the patient. These additional tests will be conducted within the guidelines of current gynecologic practice. In some cases, the patient will receive medical or surgical treatment for their disorder.

The purpose of this study is to provide an opportunity for physicians to evaluate women with medical conditions of reproduction. These evaluations and treatments will support clinical training and research for the accredited training program in reproductive endocrinology at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).<TAB>

Detailed Study Description

This protocol is designed to allow inpatient and outpatient evaluation of women with a variety of reproductive and endocrine-related disorders for purposes of research and physician education in our accredited reproductive endocrine training program. The evaluations may include ultrasound examinations and the collection of blood, saliva, and/or urine samples. In some cases, laboratory or radiologic studies will be performed to confirm the diagnosis or to aid in the management of the patient, as would be done in current gynecologic practice. In some cases, the patient will receive medical or surgical treatment for their disorder. The purpose of these evaluations or treatments will be to support our clinical training and/or research mission. In particular, this protocol is intended to provide a mechanism for reproductive endocrine fellows and staff to evaluate women with medical conditions of interest for fellow teaching and clinical training.
