Breathing rate can vary widely during the course of a normal day because exercise, emotions/excitement, and other factors can all influence breathing rate.

However, the breathing rate during the night is much more stable and a number of studies have shown that breathing rate is higher during the later part of the menstrual cycle.

Typical breathing rates are between approximately 10 and 25 breaths per minute. However, this may vary from person to person.

For more information regarding your specific breathing rate, please consult with your doctor.
