Most performance research conducted to date has been done on men. But what effect do hormones, menstrual cycles and birth control pills have on women's training and performance? Angelica Lindén Hirschberg, chief physician and professor of gynecology and obstetrics at Karolinska Institutet, presents what we know today and talks about the Swedish Olympic Committee's (SOK) new research initiative on women's physical performance ability.

The seminar is in Swedish.
