Methods: Ten, healthy, active, moderately-trained females (Mean [SD]; age 22.6 [2.7] y; stature 165.3 [6.2] cm; body mass 61.5 [8.7] kg; VO2peak 43.9 [8.6] mL.kg-1.min-1) participated. The heat stress test (HST) (31.0°C; 50% RH) consisted of 9x5min (45-mins) of intermittent exercise based on match-play of female footballers. Completing two HSTs (HST1 and HST2) separated by one week, in the follicular and luteal menstrual phases respectively. Determined by self-reported menstrual cycle questionnaire and plasma 17β-estradiol.
Results: In the follicular (HST1) versus luteal (HST2) menstrual phases there was limited change in resting Tre by 0.05 (95% CI -0.20 to 0.27°C; P = 0.74), end-exercise Tre (0.10; -0.20 to 0.40°C; P=0.47); resting Tsk (-0.45; -1.15 to 0.20°C; P=0.15), end-exercise Tsk (-0.20; -0.95 to 0.60°C; P=0.64); resting Tb (-0.15; -0.30 to 0.05°C; P=0.14), end-exercise Tb (0.05; -0.20 to 0.30°C; P=0.56). Similarly, there was limited change in end-exercise fc (1; -6 to 7 b.min-1; P=0.84); %PV (-3.7; -10.5 to 3.0%; P=0.22) and mean power output (6; -25 to 36 W; P=0.68) in the sprint performance test.
Discussion and conclusion: This work has demonstrated limited physiological and performance differences in the follicular and luteal menstrual phases of moderately-trained females during intermittent exercise in the heat. This may be due to trained females having less bi-phasic fluctuations in steroidal hormones that may attenuate the differences in the effector responses of cutaneous vasodilation during heat stress.
