Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the most common female endocrine disorder, is a complex disease with unknown etiology. PCOS is characterized by reproductive disturbances including chronic anovulation, hyperandrogenism, and polycystic ovaries. Its prevalence is 4 to 18 among young women. This study aimed to determine the risk factors in PCOS. Methods: In this descriptive-analytic study, 81 patients with PCOS referred to Vali-e-Asr Hospital, Reproductive Health Research Center, were studied. A questionnaire included demographic and stress information was used for data collection. Statistical analyses were performed by using SPSS (13 version) software, T-test, and chi- square. p<0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: The results of this study showed that 45 women (55.6) suffered from hirsutism, 48 (59.3) women BMI higher than 26, high stress in 29 women (35.8), very high stress and in need of immediate intervention in12 women (14.8). A significant relationship was found between hysteria and hirsutism (p=0.011) and between high BMI and drug abuse (p=0.004). Conclusion: PCOS patients with hysteria signs and high BMI showed more nervous tensions.
