ABSTRACT
Infertility is a major crisis in life and is the cause of the mental stress. Several studies have shown that infertility can have a negative effect on the sense of life satisfaction. The objective of this study is to determine the effect of psychological consultation on the sense of life satisfaction among the primary infertile women. In this experimental study 90 infertile women who had referred to the educational and medical center of Alzahra and the Mother clinic of Tabriz were randomly selected. Then the samples were randomly divided into case and control groups. At the first stage the information about the samples was gathered through the personal information questionnaire and the Temporal Satisfaction with Life Scale questionnaire (TSWLS). The samples of the case group were given a psychological consultation 1:30 hrs once a week for 8 weeks. At the second stage which was two weeks after the end of consultation sessions, the same questionnaire was again filled with the members of both control and case groups and the rate or satisfaction of life in the past, present and future was compared using the statistically tests such as T test, paired T- test and chi-Square tests. Statistical analysis determines that increasing of life satisfaction of infertile woman in case group before and after psychological counseling in comparation with control group was meaningful. Psychological Counseling results in increase of the life satisfaction in praimary infertile women.
