In this study we investigated the effect of oral contraceptive (OC) use (OCU) and non-use (OCNU) on growth hormone (GH) responses to exercise in the same females (n = 7, age 22–31 years) during the normal course of OC therapy. Continuous (60% maximum oxygen consumption, V˙O 2max for 20 min) and intermittent exercise (>80% V˙O 2max) protocols of equal total duration, and similar external work were performed during phases of OCNU (days 3–5 of the menstrual cycle) and OCU (days 7–11). Levels of GH… CONTINUE READING
