Cyclic changes in maximum blood How were observed in all the normal women, significant changes were not seen in the four men studied. It has been observed that at certain stages of the normal menstrual cycle, maximum blood flow values fall to as low a level as 13.6 ml per 100 ml of tissue per min. The blood flow changes in the seven normal women showed similar increases and decreases as those changes observed in limb volume. The subject on oral contraceptive therapy showed blood flow changes similar to those in subjects not on contraceptive therapy, but a different pattern of limb volume changes, showing an absence of one increase in limb volume during the cycle.

    The conventional regimen of oral contraceptive (OC) use mimics the natural cycles by causing regular withdrawal bleeding, which can be avoided by omission of the hormone-free interval of 7 days. Consequently, long-cycle regimens with continuous administration of OCs for 3 or 6 months followed by...

    Introduction: Arterial compliance will result in stabilizing the fluctuations in arterial pressure and blood flow. So arterial stiffness can be a good indicator for monitoring the cardiovascular system. Arterial stiffness can be measured using indices like reflection index (Rl), stiffness index...
