About Our Research Study
Help Researchers at NYU Langone Health understand how lifestyle & environmental factors influence health and fertility through a compensated research study.
The purpose of this study is to develop a research biobank. We aim to collect data needed to study the relation of environmental and lifestyle factors with reproductive health, including semen quality (an indicator of male fecundity), TTP measured longitudinally (an indicator of couple fecundity), and pregnancy and birth outcomes.

Our biobank will allow for future research on fertility, pregnancy, and risk factors for childhood and adult diseases that may lead to better and more effective treatment options and improvement in quality of life.

What will happen if I participate in this study?
If you are not actively engaging in heterosexual intercourse or you are engaging in heterosexual
intercourse and using contraception you will be asked to attend baseline in-person study visit when you enroll and annual follow-up visits.

The baseline questionnaire will ask you about your background, your reproductive and general health history, your sleep and activity level, what medications you may be taking, and environmental chemicals you may be exposed to in your everyday life. You will also be asked to complete a one-month dietary recall survey.

You will be asked to attend a longer in-person baseline study visit, collect regular (e.g., monthly) urine and (if applicable) semen samples at home, complete a brief questionnaire every
three months, track your menstrual cycle and intercourse and/or fertility treatment (if applicable), and return for semi-annual follow-up visits until you conceive.

You may additionally be asked to wear monitors that track your environmental exposures (e.g., air pollution, flame retardants, etc.) for one week.
Will I be paid for being in this research study?
Participants will be compensated $50-$100 per visit.
Will it cost me anything to participate in this research study?
