Stress & Premenstrual Symptoms Study

This study examines stress response in women with premenstrual mood changes (PMDs) versus women without PMDs and men. We are looking for women with and without PMDs, and for men.

For this study, you will be asked to fill out forms about your physical and mental health, have blood and saliva samples taken, and undergo a test that will measure your stress responses. This is a long-term study, consisting of 4 visits over the course of about 4 months. Compensation will be provided for your time.

Women must be experiencing regular menstrual cycles and cannot be using hormonal contraceptives. Participants may not be using psychiatric medications.

Please call Jeanette at 215-573-8884 for more information.
