Abstract

In women with PCOS, the degree of anxiety, state and trait (STAI-S, STAI-T) appears to vary in a pattern similar to that of hyperandrogenemia and insulin resistance, independently of age and BMI. The pathophysiological mechanisms underlying the association of psychological morbidities with androgen excess and insulin resistance in PCOS remain to be elucidated.
