Abstract: 
Background: Infertility effects on psychological and emotional tension in couples and make severe stress in infertile men and women. Relaxation technique is one of the methods which reduce stress and balance human emotions. The purpose of this study was determination of relaxation effect on stress score in the infertile women and pregnancy test as outcome of their treatment.
Materials and Methods: This study was a semi experimental and clinical trial study. Participants were studied by randomize sampling in two groups. At first, the stress score was determined in both groups, by Newton's infertility stress questionnaire. Stress score was evaluated in participants and then relaxation technique was administered in the intervention group. This technique performed in 12 sessions. All questionnaires were completed under supervision of the researcher after embryo transfer to the uterus (after 2 weeks) and before pregnancy test administering.
Results: Independent t-test showed total stress score does not have significant difference in groups before intervention (p>0.05). Whereas, independent t test indicated significant difference in stress scores between the two groups after intervention (p<0.05). Stress score was higher in the control group than the intervention group.
Chi-square test also showed that positive pregnancy test was significantly higher in the intervention group (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Relaxation technique as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) method can reduce stress score in infertile women and effect on treatment outcome.
