  • Abstract

    Blood pressure (BP) is not constant throughout the day, on different days in a month and on different times of a cyclical event like menstrual cycle. Variation in BP during different phases of menstrual cycle can also be attributed to the effect of female sex hormones on cardiovascular function. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the variation in BP during different phases of menstrual cycle and whether these changes an warrant an increase or decrease in the dose of antihypertensive drugs in hypertensive women of reproductive age group. To conclude, cardiovascular homeostatic mechanisms are strong enough to correct the subtle BP changes brought about by the action of ovarian hormones on the cardiovascular system.
