In our study we included 25 women in the age group of 20 to 35 years who were diagnosed as PCOS and compared the anthropometric measurements between PCOS women and non PCOS women the BMI was more than 30 in both the cases and controls, and it was statistically insignificant indicating obesity in both the groups also found a significant increase in waist hip ratio in women with PCOS when compared to women without PCOS. The total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein (LDL), triglycerides (TGL) and very low-density lipoprotein significantly higher in cases when compared with controls (HDL) was significantly lower m women with polycystic ovarian syndrome. The fasting blood sugar, fasting serum insulin and HOMA insulin resistance significantly elevated m women with PCOS than compared to controls. Time domain parameters like SDRR, RMSSD and pRR50 were also significantly decreased in women with PCOS that signifies parasympathetic withdrawal in them.
