Asthma worsens when due on

Hi. I've been asthmatic all my life, im 22 now and my asthma has gotten dreadfully worse in the last 12 months. I went to the gp and fot given different inhaler to try which worked a bonus. All of a sudden I've realised my asthma is giving my bother and I've come onto my period but was a graduate thing couple of days before i come on was when i was whizzy and needed to take my inhaler more. Thinking about it, in December when i had my period i was quite breathless.

Im notmally alright with my asthma, i just take my inhaler or a morning and evening but I've had to be taking it 2/3 times a day for the last 4 days.

Im just wondering if anyone else experiences something like this or something similar? Im going to make an appointment with ny GP if they mention anything but just wanted really human advice first

  • Same here, I also notice it gets worse around that time. Chest feels tighter and breathing gets more tiring.

  • Yes my asthma does get a lot worse around that time.

  • I get major flare up when I'm due on and during. I am at the age where I'm starting to go through the change so during the summer I was period free for 5 months bliss now they are back and my flare ups are much worse

  • Need the advice of a consultant. The GP is needed to be seen in order to make the appointment. One of the things that is known is that an inhaler that has worked for some time can suddenly become totally ineffective. To may or may not be happening.
