Problems faced by women with polycystic ovary syndrome


N Sherrin Sophia, N Janani

The present study had focussed on women with polycystic ovary syndrome. Women with PCOS had a lower self-esteem, a more negative self-image, depression and psychological distress owing to the physical appearance of hyperandrogenism, including obesity, hair loss, and excessive facial hair possibly by influencing a negative feminine identity. The relationships between psychological health aspects and the clinical characteristics of PCOS are found to be high. In this study 40 women who were under treatment at Janet Nursing Home, Tiruchirappalli were analyzed through purposive sampling technique. Majority of the respondents had high level of psychological distress. The results confirm that treatment of PCOS should tackle both physical and psychological complaints.
