Study results will be most valid if you answer all questions, but if you do not feel comfortable answering certain questions, please skip over those questions. There are very few questions that are mandatory to complete.

You will have 21 days to complete each survey. After 21 days, you will no longer be able to take the survey for that follow-up period. As soon as the next follow-up period begins you will be notified and at that point you will be able to fill out the next questionnaire.

The dietary questionnaire was developed by trained nutritionists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI). It asks how often you ate or drank certain foods and beverages in the last year. Collecting this information will allow us to study dietary factors that could affect fertility and will give us a more holistic picture of your health.

We have chosen the NCI’s dietary questionnaire because it has been widely-used and is validated for use in U.S. population-based studies. A link to the questionnaire will be sent 10 days after completion of the baseline questionnaire. It takes 30-40 minutes to complete. If you have any further questions or concerns about the dietary questionnaire, please contact us at bupresto@bu.edu.

Those who complete the dietary questionnaire will receive a brief summary about their dietary intake (e.g., % calories from fat, protein and carbohydrates; calcium and iron intake) as a token of our appreciation for filling out the survey. This will be available to participants about 2 weeks after completion of the dietary survey. Those who complete the dietary questionnaire will also be entered into a lottery to win a $100 gift card to the grocery store of their choice (1 out of every 500 participants will be randomly selected to win).

Yes. If we do not receive your completed survey within a certain amount of time, we will send you an email reminder. If you notice that you are not getting our reminders, please check your SPAM folder and add us to your SafeSender list.

Not a problem. We want you to submit the most accurate information possible. Please contact us at bupresto@bu.edu to edit your information.

Yes, but only one final questionnaire and then you’re done with the study! Please wait to receive your invitation to complete our follow-up questionnaire (sent every 2 months), and you will be given the chance to officially report your pregnancy. Once you tell us that you are pregnant, you will automatically be directed to the PRESTO early pregnancy questionnaire. Your completion of this survey is very important and will only take 10 minutes of your time.

If you no longer want to participate in PRESTO, please complete the PRESTO Withdrawal Form. You will be asked to login before accessing this page. If you have any questions or comments about study withdrawal, please contact us at bupresto@bu.edu
