REVIEW OF LITERATURE
Wright J et.al (1989) Studied three hypotheses have been most often cited on the link between infertility and psychosocial distress.
· Psychosocial problems trigger infertility
· Infertility triggers psychosocial distress
There is an interactive causal relationship between infertility and psychosocial distress. The controlled research on these three hypotheses was reviewed. The thirty publications that met inclusion criteria provide convincing evidence that, taken as a whole, patients diagnosed and treated in infertility clinics show significantly higher levels of psychosocial distress than do control groups. However, the authors conclude that research designs to date have failed to control crucial variables that permit conclusive empirical tests of the three hypotheses.
