Abstract

One hundred and ten female patients in the age group of 16 to 65 years, attending gynecology out-patient clinic were screened for psychiatric disorders. The psychiatric morbidity among patients attending gynecology clinic was found to be 49 percent, as compared to 26 percent in a sample of general population (control group). This study supports the view, that there is a higher psychiatric morbidity among patients attending gynecology clinic, and it is associated with lower socio-economic status, education and gynaecological conditions especially menstrual irregularities and pelvic pain.
