Abstract: The objective of this study was to establish the frequency of anxiety and depressive disorders among women diagnosed with unexplained infertility and to identify risk factors. Methods : We conducted a descriptive cross-sectional study. Forty-two patients from the CHU de Quebec fertility clinic were recruited. The patients completed the “Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale” (HADS) self-administered questionnaire, used to estimate prevalence of anxiety and depressive disorders (score≥8). Results : Overall, 55 % (n=23) of participants were identified with a anxio-depressive disorder according to the HADS questionnaire. Anxiety disorders were more frequent (55 %) compared to depressive disorders (10%). According to a logistic regression model, being under 35 years old (OR = 16.6, CI 1.9-25.0), having never had a previous spontaneous abortion (OR = 5.6, CI 1.1-43.5) and having never sought fertility treatment (OR = 5.5, CI 1.1-45.4) was associated with a higher risk of anxiety and/or depressive disorders. Conclusion : Anxiety and depressive disorders are frequent among women with unexplained infertility and should be sought in this at-risk population.
