MORENO ROSSET, Carmen; ANTEQUERA JURADO, Rosario; JENARO RIO, Cristina  y  GOMEZ SANCHEZ, Yolanda. Reproductive Psychology: the Need for a Psychologist in Human Reproduction Units. Clínica y Salud [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.1, pp.79-90. ISSN 1130-5274.

The present study justifies the relevance of infertility as a key topic in Reproductive Psychology and the need for a psychologist in Human Reproduction Units. The sample consisted of 485 infertile participants who attended two Spanish University Hospitals. The responses to three semi-structured interviews conducted in different phases of the diagnostic and treatment process of assisted reproduction were analyzed. Responses collected from psychological assessment measures were grouped into five categories: 1) time, 2) information, 3) social supports, and 5) emotional balance. Results revealed some of the demands and needs of Spanish infertile couples to be addressed by Reproductive Psychology.

Palabras clave : Infertility; reproductive psychology; assisted reproduction techniques.
