Sexual Satisfaction Among Infertile Couples: Demographics and Psychosocial Health Factors.
J Psychosoc Nurs Ment Health Serv. 2020 Sep 01; 58(9):40-47.JP

Abstract

The purpose of the current study was to explore sexual satisfaction among infertile couples in Jordan and its associations with psychosocial and sociodemographic factors. Using a descriptive correlational design, 248 infertile couples from outpatient clinics were recruited and filled out a questionnaire on sexual satisfaction, in addition to perceived social support, depressive symptoms, psychological stress, coping skills, optimism, life satisfaction, and sociodemographics. Sexual satisfaction was significantly and positively correlated with perceived social support, optimism, life satisfaction, and coping. Stronger association was observed between sexual satisfaction and optimism. No difference was found in sexual satisfaction in relation to participants' gender, age, working status, or education. This study highlights the importance of building mental health nurses' competence to provide education and counseling on sexuality to improve the quality of life of infertile couples and optimize their sexual wellness. The most recent guidelines for psychosocial care for infertile couples are discussed. [Journal of Psychosocial Nursing and Mental Health Services, 58(9), 40-47.].
