Introduction: Infertility has many psychological and social consequences for couples and society. The purpose of this study was to determine the role of self-Concept, quality of thematic relationships and gender role conflict in predicting infertility.
Methods: This research was a correlational study. The study population consisted of women with infertility in Tehran who were selected by convenience sampling and were divided into two groups of ovulation and tubal. Research tools included the Fitz & Warren Self-Concept Scale (1996), the quality of thematic relationships (Bell & Bell, 1995), and gender role conflict (O'Neill et al., 1986). The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics indices, Kendall's two-way correlation and logistic regression to predict infertility through the studied variables.
Results: The correlation results showed that self-Concept variables were correlated with female infertility (r = 0.125), quality of subject relationships (r = 0.375), and gender role conflict (r = 0. 314). Results Regression showed that the relationship of all three variables of self-Concept, subject-relationship quality, and gender role conflict in model prediction was significant (p≤0 / 001). Gender role conflict plays a major role in predicting infertility in women and then in the quality of their subject relationships and perceptions, respectively. The results also showed that the predictive variables were able to explain 21 to 29 percent of inequality.
Conclusion: Self-Concept, the quality of thematic relationships, and gender role conflict play a decisive role in predicting infertility in women, so improving them can help to shape and improve family functioning.
