If a woman is trying to quit smoking, timing is everything. A University of Pittsburgh study found that women who quit smoking during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle (Days 1-14) experienced far less severe symptoms of tobacco withdrawal and depression than women who quit during the luteal phase (Day 15 or later). Researchers speculate the difference could be due to the menstrual cycle’s hormonal changes and their influence on mood.
