The changes in the level of estrogen and progesterone associated with menstrual cycle not only affects the reproductive system but also affects different systems including respiratory system.Aim and Objectives: The aim of the study is to carry out pulmonary function tests during menstrual, proliferative and secretory phase of menstrual cycle in young girls.Materials and Methods: The study was carried out in 50 healthy young girls of age between 18-22 years. Pulmonary function tests were done in all the three phases of menstrual cycle. The Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to compare the means of various parameters in three phases of menstrual cycle.Result: It was observed that FVC , FEV1, FEF25-75%, PEFR and MVV were statistically highly significant (p</Abstract>
