vegetative homeostasis, autonomic nervous system, menstrual function, gonadotropic hormones, sex hormones


The article presents data from a study of the relationship of autonomic nervous system disorders in women of fertile age, depending on the hormonal provision of the menstrual cycle. Hormonal homeostasis (concentration of luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, testosterone, and cortisol) were measured in 90 women with somatoform manifestations of dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system (the main group). The control group consisted of 30 healthy women of reproductive age. The results indicate that the impact of dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system to changes in gonadotrophic regulation of menstrual function and level of sex hormones.
