Clinical and psychological correlates of quality-of-life in polycystic ovary syndrome.

In PCOS, changes in appearance, particularly obesity and hirsutism, reduce physical dimensions of quality-of-life and decrease sexual satisfaction, and Clinicians should pay attention to the psychosocial dimensions of PCOS on an individual basis.

Quality of life and marital sexual satisfaction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Quality of life parameters for women with polycystic ovary syndrome were lower than for the controls and a negative effect of hirsutism severity on general well-being and marital sexual life is observed.

Mood and sexual function in polycystic ovary syndrome.

Confirmation of the diagnosis and provision of detailed information to affected women, together with the availability of interdisciplinary treatment aimed at improving PCOS-related symptoms, will also reduce psychological distress and improve sexual self-worth.

A new perspective in diagnosing polycystic ovary syndrome.

Many PCOS patients seem to be undiagnosed due to inadherence to diagnostic work-up and/or to not fulfill Rotterdam 2003 criteria, suggesting these criteria may not be sufficient to cover the entire spectrum of PCOS.

Quality of life, psychosocial well-being, and sexual satisfaction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Health-related quality of life measured with the 36-item short-form health survey revealed significantly decreased scores for physicalrole function, bodily pain, vitality, social function, emotional role function, and mental health in patients with PCOS, and severely limits sexual satisfaction.

Depression and Body Image among Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Among women with PCOS, body dissatisfaction measures and education explained 66 percent of the variance in depression, suggesting explanations of the PCOS–depression link should consider the role of potentially mediating psychosocial variables.

Quality of life and psychological morbidity in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: body mass index, age and the provision of patient information are significant modifiers

QoL in women with PCOS is studied, the findings with population norms are compared, and whether they correlated with reported quality of patient information received is assessed.
