Abstract
Background & objectives: Cyclical changes in the hormonal levels determine different phases of
menstrual cycle. These variations in hormonal levels are also responsible for variations in functional
parameters of many systems in the body. Many studies have highlighted the changes in respiratory
parameters in different phases of menstrual cycle. In this study, we have explored the factors that influence
lung function in adolescent girls focusing on the hormonal factors related to the menstrual cycle. Methods: 36
adolescent girls with normal menstrual cycle consented for the study. Pulmonary functions and serum
progesterone were measured during follicular and secretory phase of menstrual cycle after a detailed
menstrual history and screening for medical illness. Results : show a significantly higher serum progesterone
and FVC, FEV1 and PEFR during secretory phase. There was a strong positive correlation of Serum
progesterone in secretory phase with FVC and negative correlation with FEV1%. Interpretation & conclusion:
This improvement of pulmonary function during secretory phase is due to increase in serum progesterone
levels which have a dual effect of overall smooth muscle relaxation and hyperventilation. Supplement of
progesterone may be useful to avert premenstrual asthma and enhance the performance.

Key words: adolescent girls, pulmonary function, menstrual cycle, serum progesterone.

List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE

The List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE publication ceased with the 2008 edition. The NLM Catalog can be used to obtain a list of currently indexed MEDLINE titles; select the Limit for Current Subsets called "Currently indexed in MEDLINE."

The List of Serials Indexed for Online Users online publication is designed to provide bibliographic information for serials from which articles are indexed with the MeSH® vocabulary and cited in MEDLINE®, the backbone of the NLM PubMed® database. More detailed bibliographic data and information about indexing coverage for serials cited in MEDLINE/PubMed can be found in LocatorPlus®, the NLM online catalog, and the NLM Catalog, an Entrez database.

Journals Recently Accepted by NLM for Inclusion in MEDLINE lists titles selected by LSTRC which meets three times per year in February, June, and October. Results from those meetings appear online about six weeks after each meeting, both on the Web page and in the NLM Catalog.

Previous print versions of the List of Journals Indexed for MEDLINE might be available from the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). Information about ordering documents from GPO is available at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pubcat.html#ordering.
