One hundred eleven women with PCOS in China joined a quantitative investigation by filling in a questionnaire containing the scales on body shame, body surveillance, illness ambiguity, illness acceptance, self-efficacy, and psychological problems. Fifteen women joined a face-to-face semi-structured in-depth interview. Questions about their illness ambiguity, objectified experience, behaviors to pursue beauty, and spiritual growth were asked.Twenty-eight patients participated in a tailored-made Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit (IBMS) intervention. Both laboratory and psychological measurements were taken. The study was approved by the Medical Research Ethics Committee of the HKU-Shenzhen Hospital (Ethic [2019]167) and the Research Ethics Committee of the University of Hong Kong (EA210240).
