Psykosociale følger af infertilitet og fertilitetsbehandling

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal article

Infertility and its treatment are severe, chronic, low-control stressors. Among women unsuccessful treatment is associated with increased risk of developing depressive symptoms. Among men infertility is associated with more negative emotional responses. Lifelong involuntary childlessness is associated with reduced mental well-being. It is recommended in the future to integrate mental health professionals at fertility clinics in Denmark in order to secure that also the psychosocial consequences of infertility and fertility treatment are taken care of with the highest professional standard based on scientific knowledge within this field.
