Annual Visit Year 5
The Annual Follow-Up Interview gathers a wide range of information
about: medications and hormones taken, diet, medical procedures,
menstrual cycles, social support, employment, family, and more.
This form, filled out by the participant, collects data regarding:
physical and mood symptoms, life style, physical activity, smoking,
sleep, and more.
This is a self-administered questionnaire that inquires about current
sexual activity including, sexual desire, sexual arousal, reasons for
engaging in sex, or reasons for not being sexually active.
These measures include height, weight, waist circumference, hip
circumference, and blood pressure.
The Food Frequency Interview records multiple aspects of a
participant's diet and eating habits.
A bone scan is conducted annually to measure bone mineral density of
the spine, hip, and whole body. These scans are important in learning
more about changes in bone density and osteoporosis.
A blood sample is taken to determine cholesterol, other fats, blood
sugar, insulin, sex hormones, immune function, and clotting factors.
In two to three months women will receive results and feedback to their
Food Frequency Interview, Bone Scan, and Blood Draw. Any anomalous
readings will be highlighted for the participant.
