Abstract This study aimed to assess the effect of meloxicam on female ovulation. Twenty consented fertile females were monitored for 4 menstrual cycles: a baseline cycle, 2 treatment cycles, and a washout cycle between treatment cycles. In the first cycle visit, transvaginal ultrasound was performed, a blood sample for progesterone and meloxicam analysis was withdrawn, and volunteers were given a luteinizing hormone (LH) urine test kit and meloxicam or placebo. Volunteers started the treatment on the following day and asked to return the day the LH kit was positive to detect the dominant follicle. At subsequent visits, transvaginal ultrasound and progesterone and meloxicam levels were investigated. Compared to placebo, a 5-day delay in follicle rupture, a 55.7\% increase in the mean maximum follicle diameter, and 33.5\% decrease of plasma progesterone level were observed in the meloxicam-treated group. Such demonstrated meloxicam effects were reversed in participants who were randomized to meloxicam first and then placebo. Only minor side effects were reported by volunteers during the course of treatment. It is concluded that meloxicam resulted in a reversible delay of ovulation, an increase in follicular diameter, and a decrease in plasma progesterone level.
