Abstract

Changes in progesterone and estrogen levels over the course of the menstrual cycle, with oral contraceptives or with hormone replacement therapy alter thermoregulatory control of skin blood flow and body temperature at rest and during exercise. We review here recent evidence concerning the sites and potential mechanisms of these influences.
