Abstract

Currently, more is unknown than is known about the complex interactions of exercise and the female reproductive system. Three types of menstrual changes are observed in athletes: luteal phase deficiency, anovulation, and exercise-associated amenorrhea. This article presents a clinically oriented update on the hypothesized causes, evaluation, and management of menstrual changes in active women.
