Stress Responses in Women with PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome CONCLUSION: PCOS patients showed increased cortisol levels and heart rate reactivity as well as a reduced upregulation of IL-6 in response to stress. The altered stress reactivity in PCOS patients may constitute a link between depression, overweight, ovulatory disturbance, and the cardiovascular...
