The present study was performed to analyze buffer capacity (BC) and flow rate of stimulated saliva during menstrual cycle. Two salivary samples were taken from 17 subjects during the menstrual cycle. BC was determined according to electrometric method. Both variables showed no hormone dependency. The results suggest that the salivary protection against acid attacks is constant in healthy nonpregnant women.
