Abstract

Background: The success of assisted reproductive techniques plays a very important

role in the quality of life of infertile couples and decreases the negative behavior states

of infertility.

Objective: This study aimed at determining the relationship between psychological

coping and adjustment strategies with the success of assisted reproductive technology

(ART).

Materials and Methods: This correlational study was conducted on 204 women

visiting Milad Infertility Center in Mashhad during 2015-2016. The research instruments

included Fertility Adjustment Scale and Infertility Coping Strategies Scale. The positive

result of two pregnancy tests within 48 hours was considered as the success of ART.

Results: The mean and standard division score of adjustment in the group achieved

treatment success (34.3±8.2) exceeded the group failed (33.6±8.8), the difference was

not statistically significant (p= 0.381). Also, there was no significant difference between

groups in the median and interquartile range of total coping strategies 81 (13) vs. 79.5

(12.25), (p= 0.369). Based on the logistic regression model for one increased transferred

embryo, the chance of getting pregnant is 1.3 times, and for each unit increase in FSH

level, the chance of ART success decreases 18%.

Conclusion: The results of this study showed that there is no relationship between

psychological coping and adjustment strategies with ART success. However, the

number of transferred fetus and tirthday FSH are introduced as factors that are related

to the success of ART.
