Menarche-to-PreMenopause
(M-PreM) substudy

Welcome to the M-PreM website and thank you for your interest in this exciting new substudy. We want to improve and personalise healthcare for women. The M-PreM substudy aims to understand how reproductive characteristics affect women’s chances of having chronic diseases and poor health later in life. The study will look at characteristics like the timing of your first period (menarche), period symptoms, pregnancy, and pelvic problems.

The M-PreM substudy is open to members of the 1973-78 cohort of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health. Participants will:

  • Receive a free health check at a local clinic
  • Be asked to donate a blood sample
  • Wear an activity tracker for a week
