U of S in the Enquirer

Obviously enquiring minds want to know about research at the University of Saskatchewan!

A story on page 32 of the Aug. 5 National Enquirer describes the discovery by U of S researchers that women experience two to three periods of follicular development during each monthly menstrual cycle. Lead researcher Dr. Roger Pierson of the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, is quoted extensively in the article that is headlined "Astounding News About Ovulation. Think it happens just once a month? Think again!".

The findings of the U of S research team were published in the journal Fertility and Sterility in early July and received extensive media coverage. The discovery could lead to new, more effective contraception methods as well as greater success treating women who have trouble conceiving.
