Introduction: Infertility is one of the common problems in reproductive age and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common cause of infertility. The aim of this study was to determine the general health of infertile women with PCOS referred to Sarem hospital.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 64 married women suffering PCOS with age 18 to 40 years undergoing infertility treatment. The data collection tools in this study included General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) and demographic information that its validity was confirmed by faculty members. Data were analyzed using SPSS software version 20 and the results were demonstrated in tables.
Results: The results of this study demonstrated that the mean age of subjects        was 29.82±3.04 years and marriage duration was 12.98±2.99 years and these patients had a history of 9.98±2.98 years of infertility averagely. Most of these people had primary infertility (93.7%) and others patients had secondary infertility (6.3%). Also, in terms of general health, 43.7% of participants in this study had a mild disorder. The percentage of mild disorders in general health included 60.9% of physical symptoms, 37.6% of those with anxiety and sleep disorders, and 51.5% of social functions, while 68.8% had severe depression. But, none of these participants in the research had an intense disorder in the areas of social function.
Conclusion: It can be concluded from this study that most infertile people under treatment had a severe disturbance in the depression; therefore, it seems that screening strategies and depression treatment should be noticed in their infertility course.
