These are my comments from the peer review statement at File:Peer review statement for menstrual cycle hormones article 2013.pdf:
- Regarding interpretation, I have now clarified that the timeline begins with the beginning of the last menstrual period. Checking of spelling and grammar is still needed.
- Regarding derivation, the data from Stricker is indeed of a different scale, since it uses the LH peak as the reference point. The timeline in this Wikiversity article derives the corresponding timeline based on the start of the last menstrual period by estimating the average duration between these two points. I've made a clarification of this conversion of time scales in the Average hormone values section.
- I frankly don't remember if I actually read Pauerstein's article in its entirety - I remember I went to the Carolina Rediviva library at one time to look up what was actually written in one of those papers that are not available online but I don't remember if it was that one. Still, I find no reason to believe that anything in the rest of the article is contradictory to what was given in the abstract.
- The choice of 29.1 days as average menstrual cycle length is explained in the article.
- Regarding overall text, checking for errors in spelling and grammar as still needed.
- Regarding diagrams, I specified in the "Interpretation" section that the levels denoted average refer to the (arithmetic) mean for hormone levels.
