GOMEZ-ACOSTA, César Andrés; VINACCIA ALPI, Stefano  y  QUICENO, Japcy Margarita. El síndrome de ovario poliquístico: aspectos psicológicos. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2015, vol.80, n.4, pp.341-347. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262015000400010.

Background: The vast majority of the scientific literature on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have used a bio-medical approach to analyzing this disease. In Latin America, specifically in Spanish, little is known about the relationship of PCOS with psychological factors. Aim: To analyze this gynecological disorder of endocrine origin and their association with different psychological factors and their comprehensive approach. Method: A search was performed in databases in recent years with the terms "PCOS", "quality of life", "anxiety", "depression", "body image" and "sexual dysfunction." Results: PCOS is a multifactorial disease that has been linked to depression, anxiety, stress, dissatisfaction with body image, sexual and eating disorders, cognitive functioning, quality of life and psychological well-being; the co-occurrence of such psychological situations feed the somatic condition analyzed. Conclusion: The psychological approach can complement the preventive and therapeutic actions that influence the effectiveness of treatment and subjective well-being reported by patients.

Palabras clave : Polycystic ovary; negative emotions; body image; eating disorders; quality of life.
