South Texas women needed for infertility study

UTHSC needs volunteers for infertility study - Women with PCOS will test two different medications to help them get pregnantSouth Texas patients are helping to compare two oral drugs to boost fertility: a commonly-used pill called Clomid and a newer pill called Letrozole first used for breast cancer patients. Both lead to stimulation of egg growth, but they work in different ways.

“Because they work through different mechanisms, we’re hopeful that maybe certain women will benefit from one versus the other, or maybe all women will benefit from the new medication,” Brzyski explained. “There’s always that great hope.”

Women between the age of 18 and 40 who have eight or fewer periods per year are eligible to be screened for this study. For more information, contact the study coordinator at UTHSC, Carann Easton, R.N., at (210) 567-6245 or .

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
