Infertility in the 90s: psycho-social aspect
Presents the speeches and presentations on the psycho-social aspects of infertility from the SOGC 47th Annual Meeting. Pat Johnson's speech addresses the various senses of loss felt by women, and couples, when dealing with infertility and the lack of emotional support in medical practice. The second presentation, 'Infertility: A Matter of Perception?' describes the comments heard in the public hearing held by the Royal Commission on New Reproductive Technology. It discusses the public perceptions of infertility and new reproductive technologies in contrast to the experiences of individuals and couples who have dealt with infertility and undergone treatment. The public hearings raised the issue of whether infertility, its definition, its treatment and its social acceptance and understanding is simply a matter of perception. The conclusion focuses on shared common perceptions and solutions. A third presentation, 'Psychosocial Factors and Infertility' discusses an on-going research project on life quality, psychosocial factors, and infertility. It presents new findings from this project that examine some of the differences and similarities in psychosocial factors between couples that have a fertility problem and those that do not.
