Özet

Background: Limited data are available related to the effects of sex hormones on cardiac autonomic function. Few studies investigated the heart rate variability (HRV) parameters during regular menstrual cycle or in postmenopausal women using hormone replacement therapy, but the results were contradictory. The aim of the study was to compare the characteristics of the autonomic innervation of the heart in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients with regularly cycling controls.
