Objective: To investigate the effect of Baduanjin exercise on mental health in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome(PCOS),and to open up new fields for clinical treatment. Methods: A total of 60 patients with PCOS were randomly divided into observation group and control group,with 30 patients in each group. Both groups were given a low-calorie diet without any drug or surgery. The patients in the observation group performed Baduanjin exercise for 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the evening,5 days a week,for 6 months,and those in the control group did not perform any exercise except daily activities. The two groups were compared in terms of the improvements in the severity of anxiety and depression and mental symptoms. Results: After intervention,the observation group showed significant reductions in the severity of anxiety and depression,and had significantly milder anxiety and depression than the control group(P 0. 05); the observation group also showed significant reductions in the scores of somatization,interpersonal sensitivity,depression,anxiety,and obsessive-compulsive disorder and total score on the Symptom Checklist-90 scale,and had significantly lower scores of the above items than the control group(P 0. 05). Conclusion: Baduanjin exercise can improve the mental health of patients with PCOS and thus has an important value in clinical treatment.
