We apply our recently developed global Hopf bifurcation theory to examine global continuation with respect to the parameter for periodic solutions of functional differential equations with state-dependent delay. We give sufficient geometric conditions to ensure the uniform boundedness of periodic solutions, obtain an upper bound of the period of non-constant periodic solutions in a connected component of Hopf bifurcation, and establish the existence of rapidly oscillating periodic solutions.
