Henry BurgerDepartment of Medicine, Prince Henry's Institute of Medical Research, Clayton, VIC, Australia F1000 Faculty Member (since 22 March 2005)
Research and clinical interests have included the physiology of the menopause and management of the menopause transition, anovulatory infertility, hirsutism, male infertility and female sexual dysfunction.
We are studying the endocrine features of individual ovulatory and anovulatory cycles in women in late reproductive age and during stages of the menopause transition and proposes a classification of menstrual cycles, suggestive of progressively impaired ovarian function. We aim to assess possible markers of such impairment and to examine correlations between reproductive hormones of the pituitary and ovary in order to devise explanatory hypotheses and suggest avenues for future research.
