Patient education resources to share

The asthma experience is not gender neutral. Women and girls are more likely to have asthma, their asthma may be more severe, and they are at greater risk for poor outcomes. The Women with Asthma section, now available from the CHEST Foundation, details the unique aspects of asthma in this population.

Learn more about how female biology affects the prevalence and severity of asthma symptoms; risk factors for severe asthma in women and girls; and how menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause can affect asthma exacerbations.
