Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Risk of Five Common Psychiatric Disorders Among European Women: A Two-Sample Mendelian Randomization Study

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.

Psychiatric disorders in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

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.

Maternal polycystic ovary syndrome and risk of neuropsychiatric disorders in offspring: prenatal androgen exposure or genetic confounding?

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.

Polycystic ovary syndrome and increased risk of psychiatric disorders

Assessment of the prevalence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and associated psychological disorders among women at reproductive age in Mississippi provides for the first time an estimate regarding the prevalence in women with PCOS in Mississippi and suggests associated psychological Disorders in PCOS women may be diverse based on race and ethnicity.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Psychotic Disorder

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.

A systematic review and meta-analysis of the association between maternal polycystic ovary syndrome and neuropsychiatric disorders in children

Maternal PCOS is a risk factor for various NPD with a similar extent in their children regardless of their underlying comorbidities and increased fetal testosterone exposure is associated with increased autistic traits in children.

Association of polycystic ovary syndrome or anovulatory infertility with offspring psychiatric and mild neurodevelopmental disorders: a Finnish population-based cohort study

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.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Is Associated With Adverse Mental Health and Neurodevelopmental Outcomes

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.

Personality and Psychiatric Disorders in Women Affected by Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

PCOS women have relevant personality and psychiatric disorders, when compared with normal subjects, as verified by the Rorschach test.

Increased risk of depressive disorders in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder symptoms in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

This study investigated the ADHD symptoms in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a complex endocrine, hormonal, and metabolic condition associated with hyperandrogenism and suggested that women with PCOS have higher ADHD symptoms.

Determinants of emotional distress in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Although the majority of patients exhibit subclinical levels of psychological disturbances, emotional distress together with obesity lead to large decrements in quality of life in PCOS, suggesting psychiatric illness may go undetected in a proportion of patients.
