Can anyone tell me what the connection is between asthma and menopause? I see menopause mentioned one place on this site as a possible cause for adult-onset asthma, but cannot find any more info.

I'm not sure about asthma and menopause, but I got asthma with my last pregnancy. My pulmonologist told me it was the hormones. He said 1/3 of woman get better, 1/3 get worst, and 1/3 stay the same with the hormones of pregnancy.
