Abstract: The effect of female hormones needs to be considered in the conditioning and training of female athletes.However, quantitative evaluation of autonomic function is an important indicator for determining the conditioning of athletes, in place of female hormone testing, in the sport setting.Improving intestinal environment, as well as an adequate breathing method, is recommended as an easy approach aimed at increasing the autonomic function and performance.Use of in-vivo approaches to the autonomic nervous system in female athletes is anticipated to expand in the future.
