Abstract

Introduction: Cyclical changes in hormonal levels during different phases of menstrual cycle cause physiological changes in various body organs including lung function. This study examined changes in lung function during luteal and follicular phases of menstrual cycle in young girls. in 2012 Methods: This quasi-experimental study was conducted on 61 healthy girl students aged 20 to 24 in Shahid Bahonar university of Kerman, Iran in 2012. Respiratory allergy symptoms were recorded using a specialized questionnaire. Lung function was measured using FVC, FEV1, PEFR, FVC/FEV1 and FEF25-75 parameters in the mid-follicular and mid-luteal phases of menstrual cycle. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 18, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, paired t-test and independent t-test. P value less than 0.05 was considered significant. Results: FEV1 and FEF25-75 in the luteal phase of menstrual cycle was significantly reduced compared with the follicular phase (p=0.01, p=0.04) and compared to allergic and non-allergic individuals in two phases, FVC and FEV1 were significantly reduced in luteal phase (p=0.03, p=0.04). Conclusion: Pulmonary flows measured in the luteal phase decrease compare with the follicular phase, so the lung function is influenced by menstrual cycle phases and responses can be linked to individual's allergic conditions.
