M-PreM study: Reproductive factors, from menarche to premenopause, and the risk of cardiometabolic and respiratory conditions before menopause.
Chronic conditions and poor health show marked sex differences in their prevalence and severity across the life course. Previousstudies have typically focussed on risk factors for these conditions among postmenopausal women. This study will map the pathwaysbetween female reproductive factors, from the first period through to pregnancy and subfertility, and the risks of cardiometabolicand respiratory conditions and poor health among premenopausal women. This study will involve conducting a range of biomedicaltests (body size measurements, cognitive test, handgrip strength, lung function), fitting a physical activity monitor, and collecting ablood sample to measure cardiometabolic and hormone markers and for biobanking.
