Overview

The Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR) has two main goals—to do excellent research and to share widely our research results.

CeMCOR does research with women (rather than animals or cells or genes), values what women observe and know (often collected through diary tools) and studies changes over periods of time (as long as years) thus to better describe women's life phases and range of experiences.

CeMCOR endeavours to do "Community Based Research" that comes out of a community's perceived needs, invites support and engagement at all levels from community members and reports back to that community.

CeMCOR volunteers are the heart of all research. Participants are invited to provide feedback on study processes, to learn their own results and, in a party at the end of a study, to hear what the whole study found (often years before those results are published). Please become a CeMCOR research participant—this is a unique way you can contribute and improve the scientific and woman-centred information available for daughters, friends and the wider world of women.

Hot and Bothered? Perimenopausal Women Needed for Hot Flush Study

CeMCOR is now recruiting Canadian women for this CIHR-funded randomized controlled trial to test whether oral micronized progesterone is more effective than placebo as therapy for hot flushes and night sweats in perimenopausal women.

Participants are invited to provide feedback on study processes, to learn their own results and at the end of a study, be the first to hear what the whole study found.
