Increasing interest in early preconception and periconception exposures and human developmental outcomes has led to studies that monitor subjects from before conception to gestation, birth and childhood. Monitoring ovulation, endometrial receptivity, fertilisation, implantation and gestation requires the non-invasive collection of biological information and samples, and the measurement of biochemical and biological markers (biomarkers) that are associated with the aforementioned physiological events. This paper describes some of the key features of biomarkers needed for epidemiological studies, identifies some existing and potential biomarkers and available measurement devices, and suggests some directions for identification and development of new biomarkers that might be employed in longitudinal studies involving the analysis of female reproductive function and of embryonic development.
