The Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR) is calling for participants for their study on treating perimenopausal hot flushes. 

This Canadian government-funded, Canada-wide, 4-month study is led by Dr. Jerilynn Prior, UBC Professor of Medicine. 

Currently, there is no proven effective treatment for hot flushes for perimenopausal women. A recent trial conducted by Dr. Prior at The Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research (CeMCOR) showed that the bio-identical, natural, progesterone pill is safe & effective for hot flushes for menopausal women.

They are now looking to prove that progesterone is effective for hot flushes in menstruating, perimenopausal women.

You can participate if you are between the ages of 35 and 58, have menstruated within 12 months, experience 4 moderate-severe hot flushes per day or wake twice a week with night sweats and you have not taken estrogen, progesterone or birth control pills within 6 months.

Women living anywhere in Canada are invited to join. You can participate in-person or from home. You will keep a daily record of hot flushes and receive study medication (progesterone or placebo) for 3 months.
