Abstract

 Aim and Background: INFERTILITY may cause various forms of emotional and psychosocial problems, especially among WOMEN. Many studies have focused on the psychological problems, such as depression, anxiety, and marital adjustment, in infertile WOMEN. However, very little research has been published concerning WOMEN's perception of INFERTILITY. This study aimed to investigate the IRRATIONAL PERCEPTION of parenthood in infertile WOMEN and its relation with demographic characteristics.Methods and Materials: In this cross-sectional study, 137 infertile WOMEN were selected using convenience sampling from patients who referred to Isfahan Fertility and INFERTILITY Center. Data was collected using questionnaires to assess demographic characteristics, quality of life, and IRRATIONAL PERCEPTION of parenthood. Data was analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA), Spearman's correlation, and Pearson's correlation in SPSS.Findings: The mean score of IRRATIONAL PERCEPTION of parenthood was 41.0±10.3. There was an inverse correlation between IRRATIONAL PERCEPTION of parenthood and education, economical status, and quality of life of couples (P<0.01). Psychological pressure exerted by relatives was also correlated with IRRATIONAL PERCEPTION of parenthood (P<0.05).Conclusions: High levels of IRRATIONAL PERCEPTION of parenthood existed among infertile WOMEN. They believed they needed to have children in order to live a happy life. Counseling has to be directed toward changing the perceptions of these WOMEN. Moreover, educational programs for close relatives and insurance coverage for INFERTILITY treatment are recommended.
