Stress score was evaluated in participants and then relaxation technique was administered in the intervention group. This technique performed in 12 sessions. Participants answered questionnaire under supervision of the researcher after embryo transfer to the uterus (after 2 weeks) and before pregnancy test administering.
Result: analytic tests showed total stress score does not have significant difference in the 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).
