BACKGROUND Significant changes in asthma and atopy occur throughout the menstrual cycle. We hypothesized that the characteristics of asthma (eg, symptoms, exhaled nitric oxide [eNO] levels as a marker of airway inflammation, pulmonary function, and atopy) vary throughout the menstrual cycle in relation to changes in the levels of estrogen or progesterone and that this variation is attenuated in women using oral contraception (OC). METHODS Seventeen women with asthma were studied over the… CONTINUE READING
