Frequent pvc's at rest/active. Normal ekg's, treadmill stress test, currently wearing a 14 day holter monitor. Could my period be inducing the pvc's ?
Unlikely: When a holter monitor is used, up to 80% of apparently healthy people will have pvc's. Your normal 12-lead ekg and exercise tolerance test will exclude the presence of most underlying heart diseases which can account for frequent pvc's. Other possibilities include lung diseases, sleep apnea, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, and other stimulants. I don't think frequent pvc's are associated with menses. ...Read more

The doctor will be able to read the ekg strip and look for skipped beats, irregular rhythms, or sites generating extra electrical signals. The doctor can also look at your diary to see if what you are complaining about correlate with ekg. ...Read more
