Abstract

The crisis of infertility strikes one in six couples of childbearing age. "Infertility, the inability to achieve pregnancy after one year of regular sexual relations, or the inability to carry pregnancy to a live birth" (Menning, 1982, p. 155), will be experienced by 15-20% of the population of childbearing ages 22-40 years (Bernstein & Mattox, 1982; Goodman & Rothman, 1984). Infertility was diagnosed as either primary or secondary. According to Bernstein and Mattox (1982) primary infertility occurred if a pregnancy had never been achieved. If a woman had been pregnant at least once, even if that pregnancy resulted in an abortive episode, secondary infertility existed.
