Abstract:   (420 Views)
Background: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age which can cause many problems such as hyperandrogenic symptoms and fertility problems.
Objective: The present study aimed to determine the relationship of mindfulness with hyperandrogenic symptoms and demographic and fertility factors in women with PCOS.
Methods: This descriptive correlational study was conducted on 181 women with PCOS referred to Firoozabadi and Firoozgar hospitals in Tehran, Iran who were selected using a continuous sampling method and based on inclusion criteria from June 2018 to August 2019. Data were collected using a demographic/fertility form, the modified Ferriman-Gallwey Scale, Ludwig Hair Loss Scale, and Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS). Data were analyzed using independent t-test, one-way ANOVA, Kruskal-Wallis test, Pearson correlation test, and multiple linear regression analysis.
Findings: The mean MAAS score of women was 68.61±9.88 and was significantly correlated with age (P=0.01), wife’s education (P=0.001), wife’s occupation (P=0.005), economic status (P=0.02), husband satisfaction with wife’s body and appearance (P=0.02), body mass index (P=0.01), and duration of marriage (P<0.001). According to the multiple linear regression model, the duration of marriage could predict 22% of the variance in overall MAAS score.
Conclusion: Mindfulness is associated with some demographic variables, among which the marriage is its predictor. It is recommended to pay attention to the reported variables in preparation of counseling or educational programs, along with other treatments, for women with PCOS.
