9. Stress


Stress is a by-product of any mental or physical illness. PCOS patients especially experience a lot of distress because of hirsutism.

Out of 81 PCOS patients, 32 suffered neurotic stress, 29 had high stress and 12 reported extremely high stress, according to a 2012 study published in the Journal of Reproduction and Infertility.


If you find yourself perpetually and even neurotically stressed out while simultaneously suffering from any PCOS symptoms, you might have undiagnosed PCOS.

10. Depression


Like stress, depression is another manifestation of psychological distress that goes hand-in-hand with any hormonal imbalance.

Women suffering from PCOS are rarely in high spirits owing to the various symptoms and their repercussions they have to deal with each day.


Subjects with PCOS reported increased levels of depression and anxiety, according to a 2011 study published in Human Reproduction.

Patients with higher BMIs are likely to report higher levels of anxiety and depression than those with lower BMIs, the study further notes.

If you find yourself perpetually depressed and also have other symptoms of PCOS, consult your doctor for diagnosis and treatment of PCOS or other underlying issues.
