Objective: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age characterized by irregular menstruation and hirsutism and is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular diseases. Increased inflammatory response and oxidative stress may also present in these patients. In this study, we aimed to compare the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), mean platelet volume (MPV), and dynamic thiol-disulphide homeostasis (dTDH) between the patients with PCOS and healthy individuals and to investigate the correlation between these parameters and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with PCOS.
