A quick note

Well at the last minute the kids and myself are going on a trip to Canada via Ferry with my parents and Great-grandma Ruth. We leave today and get back Monday. We should have a really fun time.

I went up and signed all the consent forms for the clinical trial. I am the first patient who has gotten this far. If you live in the Portland, OR or SW Washington area you might want to look into it they are taking 50 volunteers. Oh and they are going to pay me $500, so if it doesn't work we might just use the money to buy the drugs our insurance company won't pay for.

Here are the qualifications for the study
Volunteers must:
  • Be aged 18 to 38
  • Have BMI* less than 35
  • Have been unable to become pregnant in the last 12 months
  • Have an irregular menstrual cycle of four or fewer a year OR have a menstrual cycles of more than 45 days
  • Have a male partner with a normal sperm count

Volunteers must not:
  • Have diabetes mellitus
  • Be diagnosed with anorexia
  • Have active substance abuse
