A Comparative Study of Body Weight, Hemoglobin Concentration and Hematocrit During Follicular and Luteal Phases of Menstrual Cycle

Aisha Javaid, Ruqaiya Hasan and Tazeen Naim

Abstract:
The present study comprises the relationship among body weight, hemoglobin and hematocrit during follicular and luteal phases in young menstruating women. Hemoglobin concentration, hematocrit and body weight were measured in 25 healthy normal menstruating women, over 2-3 consecutive menstrual cycles. Hemoglobin concentrations were significantly (p<0.05) lower in follicular phase than in the luteal phase. Hematocrit and body weight did not show any statistically significant differences in both the phases of menstrual cycle. In addition Basal Body Temperature (BBT) showed a significant rise during the luteal phase of the cycles.
