I was wondering if you could share your experiences with me as to whether your hormones affect your asthma and if so, at what times of the month is your asthma is worse (?h and ihave you found anything that helps?
Bit of background....
I'm 29, and after 25 years of no A&E visits for asthma, I had my first hospital admission for asthma this month. I was in hospital for 10 days and have been out 2 weeks today however I'm recovering pretty slowly - my lungs seem to be supersentive to any allergens (I'm safe in my bedroom in my parents house and that's about it at the moment!). I've had a few dips since I got out of hospital (including another day in A&E) and I'm trying to work out what might be triggering set-backs. I think the A&E day trip was around ovulation and that I had another dip on day one of my period.
Are these times of the month other women find there asthma getting worse? Has anyone found anything to help prevent your hormones triggering your asthma? (Unfortunately I can't have the combined hormonal pill because of a history of focal migraines, and can't take the progresterone only pill because of gastric reflux).
