Emotional distress, resilience, and fertility quality of life among infertile women

Qudsia Saeed, Aisha Zubair, Fatima Bibi.

Abstract
Objective: To investigate the relationship between emotional distress, resilience, and fertility quality of life among women with infertility.
Methodology: In this correlational cross-sectional study, data were collected with standardized and validated questionnaires. It included 200 clinically diagnosed infertile women from Islamabad and Rawalpindi. The age of participants ranged from 22 to 35 years. Perceived Emotional Distress Inventory, Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale and Fertility Quality of Life Questionnaire 3 were used to assess the study variables.
Results: Emotional distress was negatively related with resilience and fertility quality of life. Resilience was positively related with better fertility quality of life. Respondents in senior age group, with minimal education level, being married for extended period of time, living in joint family, experiencing absence of spousal support, and with non-working status displayed higher emotional distress, lower resilience and poor fertility quality of life.
Conclusion: Resilience was a protective factor to reduce emotional distress in predicting better fertility quality of life. Demographic factors play significant influence in determining experiences of emotional distress, resilience and fertility related quality of life among women with infertility.

Key words: Emotional distress, resilience, quality of life, infertility.
