Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder in women with unknown causes and is the leading cause of infertility in women of reproductive age, presenting a wide range of clinical manifestations worldwide. The objective of study is to compare the correlation between hormones, lipid profile, oxidative stress and Zinc concentration in PCOS patients.

Methods: The present study examined hormone levels (progesterone, prolactin, luteinizing and follicle stimulation hormones (LH and FSH, respectively), antioxidant factors (catalase, glutathione-s- transferase), lipid profiles and zinc concentration of 50 Iraqi women patients’ diagnosis with PCOS and 40 healthy women, divided in two age groups of 15-29 and 30-45 years. Body mass index was estimated for two age groups.

Results: The results showed decreasing of catalase, glutathione, and Zn concentrations with an increase in age. A slightly significant increase in LH and prolactin and decrease in high-density lipoprotein (HDL-C) with an increase in age in the patient group compared to the control group was noted.

Conclusions: Our study demonstrated that some factors (such as family history, genetics, environmental, etc…) could play a role in altering hormone levels, lipid profiles, and antioxidant. Controlling these factors may be useful for reducing the PCOS-associated problems in women’s health. Needed extensive studies to assess the correlation with insulin resistant and obesity.
