  • PURPOSE We examined estradiol and testosterone effects on thermoregulation in women with and without Polycystic Ovary syndrome (PCOS). We hypothesized that core temperature (Tc) threshold for sweating during exercise is delayed in women with PCOS and that testosterone delays the Tc set point for sweating during exercise. METHODS For 16 d, we suppressed estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist (GnRHant) in seven women with and seven women… CONTINUE READING

    Large differences in peak oxygen uptake do not independently alter changes in core temperature and sweating during exercise.
