Research Opportunity: Hormones & Eating

Many people report that they eat more before their menstrual period. But we don’t yet know exactly which hormones are involved in this change or why this change occurs. The University of North Carolina is trying to better understand how female reproductive hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, impact eating behaviors. 

You or someone you know might be eligible to join this research study if you:

  • Are 18-42 years of age
  • Have regular menstrual periods

Participation in this research study includes a total of 8 study visits, which will occur over the course of 4 months. Study participants can receive up to $1050, a free medical exam and blood work, and all study participants can learn how their own, personal eating behaviors changed in response to hormones during a one on one meeting with the study investigator after study completion.
