Özet

Objectives: Although there are many studies trying to evaluate the effect of infertility on marital relations (MR) and quality of life (QoL) in developed counties, there have been no studies in Turkey. As in many societies around the world, lack of pregnancy and the resulting childlessness are often highly stigmatized, leading to profound social suffering for infertile couples in Turkey.
