Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder affecting 5-15% of reproductive-aged women and characterized by high levels of circulating androgens. Given that androgens have been implicated in the aetiology of several psychiatric disorders, it was hypothesized that women with PCOS have high risk for psychiatric comorbidity. We aimed to investigate this risk amongst women with PCOS, as well as in their siblings, to elucidate if familial factors underlie any potential associations… Expand
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Risk of Five Common Psychiatric Disorders Among European Women: A Two-Sample Mendelian Randomization Study
TLDR
In European populations, PCOS may be a causal factor in OCD, but not AD, BIP, MDD, or SCZ, while genetically predicted OCD was not associated with PCOS. Expand
Psychiatric disorders in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
TLDR
The higher prevalence of psychiatric disorders in patients with PCOS, especially depression and anxiety disorders, may be due to both hyperandrogenism and the resulting somatic symptoms. Expand
Maternal polycystic ovary syndrome and risk of neuropsychiatric disorders in offspring: prenatal androgen exposure or genetic confounding?
TLDR
The results strengthen evidence for a potential causal influence of prenatal androgen exposure on the development of male-predominant neuropsychiatric disorders in female offspring of women with PCOS. Expand
Psychiatric comorbidities and adverse childhood experiences in women with self-reported polycystic ovary syndrome: An Australian population-based study
TLDR
Findings support PCOS is a reproductive, metabolic and psychological disorder and reinforces guideline recommendations to assess psychological wellbeing for in women with PCOS. Expand
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Psychotic Disorder
TLDR
Clinical and preclinical data indicate neuroendocrine involvement with dysfunction in gamma-Aminobutyric acid signaling and neuronal androgen receptors that might reduce hypothalamic sensitivity and lead to an impairment of estradiol and progesterone feedback. Expand
Polycystic ovary syndrome, personality, and depression: A twin study
TLDR
Female twins with PCOS had significantly higher levels of neuroticism than women without PCOS, and a 2-fold increase in odds for a lifetime prevalence of MDD, providing some etiological evidence behind the comorbidity between PCOS and depression. Expand
Association of polycystic ovary syndrome or anovulatory infertility with offspring psychiatric and mild neurodevelopmental disorders: a Finnish population-based cohort study
TLDR
The results were robust when restricting the analyses to the first-born children or births to mothers without psychiatric diagnosis or purchase of psychotropic medication, and the risk of any neuropsychiatric disorder was increased in offspring to normal-weight mothers with PCOS. Expand
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Is Associated With Adverse Mental Health and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes
TLDR
PCOS is associated with psychiatric morbidity and increased risk of ADHD and ASD in their children and Screening for mental health disorders should be considered during assessment. Expand
Origins and Impact of Psychological Traits in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
TLDR
Prenatal androgenized rodent models reflecting the anxiety-like phenotype of PCOS in the offspring, found evidence for the altered placenta and androgen receptor function in the amygdala, a previously unknown mechanism that may be critical in understanding how maternal androgen excess can increase the risk of developing anxiety disorders in daughters and partly in sons of PCos mothers.

Maternal polycystic ovarian syndrome in autism spectrum disorder: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The available evidence suggests that women with PCOS have increased odds of having a child with ASD, an effect size estimate based on a large number of patients from studies of good quality is suggested. Expand
