Assessment of Fertility and Factors Influencing Reproduction and Menopause in BRCA Mutation carriers
The Basser Research Center for BRCA and fertility specialists at the University of Pennsylvania are recruiting women for a study to better understand fertility in women with BRCA mutations and their BRCA negative relatives. The goal is to help women with increased risk of cancer make decisions about when to start their families.
All women age 18-55 who have tested positive or negative for a BRCA mutation are encouraged to participate.
The study includes a 30-minute online survey and hormone measurement (eligible women will receive a kit by mail, collect a few drops of blood by finger-prick, and return the sample by mail.)
