The researchers were looking to enroll at least 180 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Love Research Army members on February 4, 2010. The researchers were able to close enrollment on February 5, 2010, after the Love Research Army provided them with 10,767 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
