In Latin America, specifically in Spanish, little is known about the relationship of PCOS with psychological factors.

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.
