ABSTRACT
It has been reported that there are significant differences in some biochemical markers of PCOS between married and unmarried women with this disorder. The present study was designed to evaluate the correlation of marital status with thyroid hormones, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and androgenic activities. Twenty four married and unmarried women with PCOS were evaluated concerning TSH, T3, T4, glycemic control, C-peptide and lipid profile were evaluated in fasting blood samples. The results showed that in both unmarried and married women with PCOS TSH, FPS, C-peptide, and triglycerides levels were significantly elevated compared to healthy control group. Although serum level of TSH was slightly elevated in married women compared to unmarried group, no significant differences were observed in this respect; the same thing was reported for FPS, serum levels of C-peptide and triglycerides, where those parameters shown to be slightly higher in unmarried women but not significantly different from those reported in married group of PCOS women. In conclusion, no correlations were reported for the marital status with thyroid hormones, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism in Iraqi females with PCOS.
