Psychological well‐being as an outcome variable in the treatment of infertility by Clomiphine (pages 375-377)

A sample of twenty‐seven patients who had undergone extensive investigation and subsequent treatment for infertility were asked to complete a questionnaire constructed from items demonstrated to be valid components of the subjective states of happiness and well‐being. With two exceptions, whose current subjective state seemed likely to have been adversely affected by serious current life‐events, the respondents seemed equally happy whether or not their treatment had been successful. Adjustments to the infertility state are briefly discussed.
