Longitudinal epidemiologic studies of menstrual and reproductive function are more informative if one can identify day of ovulation. We previously developed a method for estimating day of ovulation that is feasible for epidemiologic studies.

This paper describes results of applying this method to a large study with 724… CONTINUE READING
