Abstract :

During the menstrual cycle phases changes in the levels of female sex hormones mainly estrogens and progesterone, have some possible influence over the clotting and fiinolytic activity of the blood, rhythmicity and conductivity of the electrical impulse of heart. Aim: Main objective of the study is to find out the effects of different phases of menstruation on ECG intervals. Methodology: This was a cross sectional descriptive study conducted in female nursing students aging18 to22 years were considered Sample size was decided to be 140 female nursing students from LN Nursing College, Bhopal. Inclusion criteria were normal healthy female aged 18 to 22 years with regular menstrual cycle (30 days +- 3 days) in previous six cycles. There Electrocardiographic changes were accessed in different phases of menstrual cycle. Results- In our study we found longest RR interval in secreatory phase in comparison to proliferative and menstrual phase. Shortest Bleeding Time was found in menstrual phase. The results related to QT and QTc intervals shows that longest clotting time measures in proliferative phase as comparison to Menstrual and secreatory phase. Shortest QT and QTc intervals were found in secreatory phase
