There are many unique aspects of asthma in women. Compared with men, women go through several hormonal stages over the life span-childhood, menarche, reproductive years, pregnancy, menopause, and postmenopause-and each affects asthma. Onset of asthma in women differs from men. Asthma in women is more often associated with obesity and women are over-represented among patients with severe asthma, including those being prescribed biologic therapies. Asthma affects fertility and pregnancy, and female hormone replacement therapy has been found to affect asthma onset as well as asthma severity. We explore the unique aspects of asthma in women.
