Clinical studies included in the collection indicate that phthalate exposure may impact the maternal endocrine system during pregnancy. Others evaluate patterns of cardiometabolic health during the transition to menopause, and more.

Basic science studies demonstrate that SIRT1 impacts reproductive cycles in response to calorie restriction, use mouse models to investigate how maternal obesity and androgen exposure affect the microbiome of offspring, and investigate how maternal high-fat diets may cause placental dysfunction.

Additional studies provide insight into how gestational diabetes causes subfertility in female offspring, describe an in vitro human first-trimester gonadal model system, and explore the impact of circadian dysregulation on women with PCOS. Review articles examine the commonalities between inflammatory responses and ovulation, provide an overview of the current state of endometriosis research, and describe the role of uterine glands in fertility and pregnancy.
