Abstract

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most important cause of anovulation in general population and infertile women. Emphasizing the importance of polycystic ovary syndrome as one of the causes of infertility and according to association between this syndrome with hormonal and metabolic disorders, this study was performed with aim to evaluate the effect of 12 weeks aerobic training on body composition, aerobic power and some women-hormones in polycystic ovary syndrome infertile women. Methods: This randomized clinical trial study was performed on 20 polycystic ovary syndrome infertile women referring to obstetrics clinic of Bojnurd in 2015. They were randomly categorized into two groups of experimental and control (n=10 in each group). The trained group performed 12 weeks 3 days/week aerobic training with severity of 40-65 maximum heart rate reserve. Pre and post of aerobic training, sex hormones levels and body composition were collected. Data was analyzed by SPSS software (version 18) and t-test in dependent and independent groups was used for comparison of means within and between groups, respectively. PResults: Weight and LH levels reduced and Vo2max significantly increased at the end of training period (P=0.001). Concentrations of TSH, FSH and prolactin did not changed at the end of training (P>0.05). Moreover, a significant difference was observed in the levels of weight, BMI, LH and Vo2max between two groups after at the end of training period (P<0.05). Conclusion: According to reduced weight and LH and increased Vo2max by doing aerobics training, it can be used as a non-pharmaceutical alternative to improve PCOS patients.
