Rationale: Menopause is associated with changes in sex hormones, which affect immunity, inflammation, and osteoporosis and may impair lung function. Lung function decline has not previously been investigated in relation to menopause. Objectives: To study whether lung function decline, assessed by FVC and FEV1, is accelerated in women who undergo menopause. Methods: The population‐based longitudinal European Community Respiratory Health Survey provided serum samples, spirometry, and… 
Childhood lung function as a determinant of menopause-dependent lung function decline.
TLDR
Lung function declines especially rapidly in postmenopausal women who had poor low lung function in childhood, which provides novel insights into respiratory health during reproductive aging and emphasizes the need for holistic public health strategies covering the whole lifespan.
Early Age at Natural Menopause Is Related to Lower Post-Bronchodilator Lung Function: A Longitudinal Population-based Study.
TLDR
New evidence is provided that early menopause is associated with reduced lung function that is suggestive of restriction, but not obstruction, even after adjustment for early life confounders.
Exogenous female sex steroids may reduce lung ageing after menopause: A 20-year follow-up study of a general population sample (ECRHS).
TLDR
The decline in lung function was less rapid in women who used HRT, following a dose-response pattern, and consistent when adjusting for potential confounding factors, which may signify that female sex hormones are of importance for lung ageing.
Age at menopause and lung function: a Mendelian randomisation study
TLDR
Mendelian randomisation, an approach not affected by classical confounding, shows that early menopause has a protective effect on airflow obstruction, which points to the importance of investigating the effects of female sex hormones on the airways.
Menopause, lung function and obstructive lung disease outcomes: a systematic review
TLDR
The findings generally support an association between menopause and clinically significant reductions in lung function in a non-obstructive pattern, however, the effects of menophere are clouded by aging, menopausal hormone therapy use, and increased risk of metabolic syndrome during this period.
Stages of menopause and abnormal lung function: a cross-sectional study of middle-aged women
TLDR
In this large study of middle-aged women, the fully adjusted prevalence of abnormal lung function, particularly that of restrictive ventilatory disorder, was higher in women in late menopausal transition and menopausal stages compared to women in premenopausal stage.
Risk of asthma onset after natural and surgical menopause: Results from the French E3N cohort.
TLDR
Surgical menopause was associated with an increase risk of asthma onset and overweight/obese women had an increased risk of developing asthma after natural menophere, but not in normal-weight women.
Low serum DHEA-S is associated with impaired lung function in women
TLDR
Low DHEA-S levels in women were associated with impaired lung function and a greater risk of developing airflow limitation later in adult life, providing new evidence supporting a role of DHEa-S in respiratory health.
Female reproductive history in relation to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung function in UK biobank: a prospective population-based cohort study
TLDR
Multiple female reproductive health indicators across the life course are associated with COPD-related hospitalisation/death and lung function, and associations with polycystic ovary syndrome, PCOS/ovarian cysts, HRT and hysterectomy were in opposing directions.
Association of adult lung function with accelerated biological aging
TLDR
It is suggested that DNAm based lifespan and plasma level predictors can be utilised as important factors to assess lung health in adults.

Menopause is associated with accelerated lung function decline in the longitudinal European community respiratory health survey
TLDR
FVC decreased more strongly among postmenopausal women in this population-based study, and Clinicians should be aware that respiratory health might deteriorate in women during reproductive aging.
Lung function, respiratory symptoms, and the menopausal transition.
TLDR
Menopause is associated with lower lung function and more respiratory symptoms, especially among lean women, and body mass index (BMI) modifies associations.
Association Between Smoking and Respiratory Function Before and After Menopause
TLDR
It seems plausible that effective quit-smoking programs, particularly after menopause, may lead to better lung function and reduced morbidity and mortality in women.
Menopause as a predictor of new-onset asthma: A longitudinal Northern European population study.
TLDR
New-onset asthma and respiratory symptoms increased in women becoming postmenopausal in a longitudinal population-based study and Clinicians should be aware that respiratory health might deteriorate in women during reproductive aging.
Respiratory symptoms, pulmonary function, and reproductive history: Isparta Menopause and Health Study.
TLDR
The findings suggest that reproductive factors may influence women's pulmonary health and postmenopausal status is independently associated with increased odds of chronic cough plus phlegm, whereas it does not appear to be independent associated with FEV(1) or FVC.
Early age at menarche, lung function, and adult asthma.
TLDR
Women with early menarche had lower lung function and more asthma in adulthood, which supports a role for metabolic and hormonal factors in women's respiratory health.
Lower lung function associates with cessation of menstruation: UK Biobank data
TLDR
There was no clear association of lung function with age at hysterectomy and/or oophorectomy, and lower lung function associates with cessation of menstruation, especially if it occurs early in life.
Hormone replacement therapy, body mass index and asthma in perimenopausal women: a cross sectional survey
TLDR
In perimenopausal women there is an interaction between HRT and BMI in the effects on asthma, and Lean women who were HRT users had as high a risk for asthma as overweight women not taking HRT.
Menopausal status and sleep-disordered breathing in the Wisconsin Sleep Cohort Study.
TLDR
Evaluation for sleep-disordered breathing should be a priority for menopausal women with complaints of snoring, daytime sleepiness, or unsatisfactory sleep.
The effects of hormone therapy on pulmonary function tests in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
It was seen that particularly continuous combined HT regimen positively affected the FEV1 and FVC parameters of the postmenopausal women.
