The Johns Hopkins University is seeking women to participate in a research study on the menstrual cycle. The study involves three remote visits with Johns Hopkins staff over the course of two to three months, plus in-person blood draws. These visits involve questionnaires about mood, tracking your menstrual cycle, and providing saliva samples, in addition to blood samples. Each of the visits lasts about 1 hour.
To be eligible for the study, women must:
- Not experience any premenstrual mood symptoms
- Be age 18-50
- Experience regular menstrual cycles
- Not be taking hormonal birth control (the pill, the patch, the shot, the Mirena/Skyla IUD)
- Not be using psychiatric medications such as antidepressants
