dc.description.abstractBackground: Compared to men, women smoke for different reasons, have unique barriers to cessation, and are less likely to utilize quitline services. While current clinical recommendations have called for sex/gender-specific smoking cessation protocols, quitline protocols have not been expanded to address the unique needs of women. Menstrual cycles (and/or ovarian hormones) influence quit outcomes in women. This paper presents the rationale, study design, and protocol for a preliminary randomized control trial designed to test the feasibility and acceptability of utilizing menstrual cycle timing to improve quit outcomes in women of reproductive age. Methods/Design: Participants include treatment seeking women (n=116), between the ages of 18-40 with regular menstrual cycles. Eligible participants are randomized to either the Follicular Phase (FP) or Standard Care (SC) control group. Counseling included six weekly telephone sessions with four week of nicotine replacement therapy. The timing and frequency of sessions is identical to both conditions, with the exception of the quit day (week 3 of counseling). Quit day for FP participants is scheduled within 6-8 days post onset of menses; the SC group quit day is set for Week 3 of counseling regardless of their menstrual cycle phase. Discussion: If feasible and acceptable, our behavioral counseling intervention that times the quit day to the follicular phase of the menstrual may increase quit outcomes among women. Moreover, our telephone based approach that is similar to quitline protocols also allows for wide dissemination across quitlines nationallyen_US
