Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a common and severe psychiatric illness. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a complex endocrine disorder, commonly affects women of reproductive age. Both of these disorders can have a profound effect on the wellbeing and outcomes of the individual. Recent studies have shown a higher prevalence of PCOS in women with BPD. The aim of this study is to examine BPD symptomology, and trauma history, in women with PCOS compared to healthy controls (with no PCOS).
