BACKGROUND We analyzed the neuroendocrine and immune cell responses to psychosocial stress in PCOS patients compared to BMI-matched healthy controls. METHODS Responses to public speaking stress were analyzed in 32 PCOS patients and 32 BMI-matched healthy controls. At baseline, during, and 10- and 45-min after stress, state anxiety, cardiovascular responses, cortisol, ACTH, as well as circulating leukocyte subpopulations were analyzed, together with hsCRP and serum IL-6 concentrations… Expand
The experience of stress in women diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
This study examined how 16 women with PCOS physiologically responded to a brief stressor, the Social Competence Interview (SCI), as compared to a healthy control population, and indicated that women withPCOS reported significantly more somatic complaints than healthy controls. Expand
Depression, anxiety and cardiometabolic risk in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
Depression and anxiety are more common in patients with PCOS compared with healthy women and might be associated with obesity and metabolic abnormalities including insulin resistance and dyslipidemia. Expand
Effect of Progressive Muscle Relaxation on the Adverse Cardiovascular Profile in Women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
TLDR
PCOS patients are a high-risk group for developing the metabolic syndrome and relaxation therapies may be recommended as an adjuvant therapy, to tilt the autonomic balance to parasympathetic dominance, to improve the cardiovascular profile. Expand
Cortisol production rate is similarly elevated in obese women with or without the polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
Basal, pulsatile, and total cortisol production expressed per liter distribution volume, per square meter body surface, and as absolute amount per 24 h was similar in PCOS patients and matched healthy control women, and the regularity of cortisol secretion and the diurnal properties were identical. Expand
Increased Risk of Psychiatric Disorders in Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome in Southwest China
TLDR
PCOS and related symptoms may be risk factors for depression and anxiety in women of reproductive age and professionals should be concerned with the MH of women with PCOS. Expand
Psychological investigation in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
The high prevalence of depression and anxiety in this population of Iranian women with polycystic ovary syndrome suggests that initial evaluation of all women with PCOS should also include assessment of mental health disorders. Expand
Depression and anxiety in women with polycystic ovary syndrome from Pakistan
TLDR
It is concluded that depression and anxiety is highly prevalent in PCOS patients as compared to controls and this disorder seems to be related with obesity, infertility, hirsutism, menstrual irregularities and insulin resistance. Expand
Sleep disturbances in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: prevalence, pathophysiology, impact and management strategies
TLDR
Both immediate quality of life and longer-term health of women with PCOS are likely to benefit from diagnosis and management of sleep disorders as part of interdisciplinary health care. Expand
Adrenal activity and metabolic risk during randomized escitalopram or placebo treatment in PCOS
TLDR
Waist circumference and cortisol levels increased during treatment with escitalopram in women with PCOS and no clinical depression, whereas metabolic risk markers, mental health and HRQol were unchanged. Expand
Depression in women with polycystic ovary syndrome; the role of body mass index and infertility on it
TLDR
The high prevalence of depression in PCOS indicates that initial assessment of all women with PCOS should also consist the evaluation of mental health disorders, especially in view of the factors affecting psychological well-being. Expand

Effects of obesity on neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, and immune cell responses to acute psychosocial stress in premenopausal women
TLDR
The data reveal a strong association of obesity with chronic low-grade inflammation in premenopausal women and this pro-inflammatory state, together with altered neuroendocrine and cardiovascular stress responsiveness, may conceivably constitute one of the mechanisms linking psychological stress and the long-term health risks associated with obesity. Expand
Autonomic and neuroendocrine responses to stress in patients with functional hypothalamic secondary amenorrhea.
TLDR
Patients with FHSA do not cope as well as healthy patients, and their autonomic response to stress is worse than both controls and patients with PCOS. Expand
Public Speaking Stress-Induced Neuroendocrine Responses and Circulating Immune Cell Redistribution in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
In IBS patients without psychiatric comorbidity, the endocrine response as well as the circulation pattern of leukocyte subpopulations to acute psychosocial stress do not differ from healthy controls in spite of enhanced emotional responses. Expand
Stress-related peripheral neuroendocrine–immune interactions in women with ulcerative colitis
TLDR
Together with the in vitro evidence of disturbed adrenergic regulation of IL-10 production by stimulated PBCs in UC, these may indicate the existence of subtle disturbance of peripheral cellular neuroendocrine-immune interactions in UC. Expand
Obesity, depression, and chronic low-grade inflammation in women with polycystic ovary syndrome
TLDR
It is confirmed that obesity plays a pivotal role in inflammatory processes relevant to cardiovascular risk in women with PCOS, and even lean PCOS patients may display subtle alterations in specific aspects of immunity. Expand
Plasma interleukin 6 levels are elevated in polycystic ovary syndrome independently of obesity or sleep apnea.
TLDR
It is concluded that IL-6 levels are elevated in obese women with PCOS independently of obesity or sleep apnea and may represent a pathophysiologic link to insulin resistance. Expand
Endothelial dysfunction in young women with polycystic ovary syndrome: relationship with insulin resistance and low-grade chronic inflammation.
TLDR
The PCOS group was more insulin resistant than age- and BMI-matched control women, and the high-sensitivity CRP concentrations were higher in PCOS women than the healthy control group. Expand
Corticotropin-releasing hormone induces an exaggerated response of adrenocorticotropic hormone and cortisol in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that women with PCOS may demonstrate hyperfunction of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, which may be involved in the physiopathologic events leading to the complexity of the syndrome. Expand
Altered morning and nighttime pulsatile corticotropin and cortisol release in polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
The existence of multifaceted dysregulation of the HPA axis in PCOS is demonstrated, with increased ACTH and cortisol release both in the morning and at night and higher hormonal interpeak valley concentrations and nighttime pulse amplitudes. Expand
The polycystic ovary syndrome per se is not associated with increased chronic inflammation.
TLDR
In PCOS, the type 2 diabetes risk may be confined to those with obesity and/or metabolic alterations rather than affecting all women suffering from the syndrome, and PCOS-related endocrine abnormalities do not appear to activate inflammatory parameters thereby enhancing the risk of diabetes. Expand
