The influence of the female ovarian hormones on nasal physiology has been the subject of ongoing research, especially over the last 20 years, yet their role remains unclear. This review looks at the evidence to date from the studies that have looked at the different physiologic and therapeutic scenarios in which the ovarian hormones are raised. It also examines the current pathophysiologic links between the hormonal surges and nasal congestion and the missing links that need to be addressed in future studies.
