ABSTRACT
Introduction: Considering the high prevalence of mental health problems caused by infertility in infertile women, and the necessity to know their mental state to carry out interventions to help them, this study was done to evaluate resiliency, meta-emotional beliefs, and psychological well-being in fertile and infertile women. Materials and Methods: This is a causal-comparative study. The study population included all infertile women referred to health centers in the Meshginshahr in 2014. The study sample consisted of 80 infertile women and 80 fertile women, selected through convenience sampling method. Connor and Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC), Positive Metacognitions and Positive Meta-Emotions Questionnaire and Psychological Well-being Scale were used to collect data. Data were analyzed through multivariate analysis of variance by SPSS software. Results: Our findings indicate that there are significant differences between fertile and infertile women in resiliency (P<0.001, F=10.47), meta-emotional beliefs (P<0.031, F=4.75), and psychological well-being (P<0.001, F=12.31). Infertile women scored lower than fertile women in all of these variables. Conclusion: According to our findings which imply lower levels of resilience, meta-emotional beliefs, and psychological well-being in infertile women than in fertile women, closer attention to infertile women's mental health and devising interventions to help them is warranted.
