Menstrual Cycle Influences Concussion Outcomes
Researchers found that women injured during the two weeks leading up to their period (the premenstrual phase) had a slower recovery and poorer health one month after injury compared to women injured during the two weeks directly after their period or women taking birth control pills. The University of Rochester study was published in the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation.
