Abstract

The evidence from this and other studies suggests that certain hormonally mediated conditions, e.g. the postovulatory phase of the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and, arguably, oral contraceptive use, fend off RA symptoms. Conversely, the preovulatory phase of the menstrual cycle, infertility, the postpartum period, and menopause appear to promote manifestations of RA.
