Infertility is defined as the inability of a woman to become pregnant during her reproductive years, i.e., even after a year of unprotected sexual relations, and it is not always the result of a specific medical condition. Sometimes, mental health problems can also contribute to infertility, as mental health is just as important for all aspects of life as physical health. People behave and believe in some societies differently depending on their belief systems, especially if a girl or woman has polycystic ovary syndrome. When hormone imbalances arise, women's mental and sexual health may also be affected differently. Goal: To evaluate PCOS women's sexual and psychological effects on fertility. Methods: Medical databases were thoroughly searched. The terms "infertility," "PCOS," "sexual issue," and "fertility" were entered in the search fields of Medline, PubMed, NCBI PMC, and Science Direct. Between January 2020 and December 2021, the search was processed. Studies that were published in English and that investigated the sexual function of infertile people met the inclusion criteria. Additionally, the means of the definition for PCOS are nearly identical.
