Factors associated with adoption acceptance rate from the view point of infertile couples|
Mojtaba Yassini, Seyyed; Shavazi, Mohsen Taghavi & Shavazi, Naeimeh Taghavi
Background: Nowadays artificially assisted reproductive techniques are used to
cure infertility. These methods are highly expensive, time-consuming and have low
success rates which are usually around 20-40%. One of the best alternate methods
for infertility treatment that can be considered is adoption that often decreases the
treatment costs and the psychological impact within an infertile couple.
Objective: This study has been done with the aim of determining adoption acceptance rates and the effective factors of adoption in infertile couples.
Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed between October 2009-2010 on 200 infertile couples who had been referred to Infertility Center of Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences. Information gathered through face-to-face interview and questionnaires. The data analyzed through a SPSS software program using ANOVA test.
Results: There was a significant statistical relationship between adoption acceptance value scores and marriage duration of a couple (p=0.002 in men, p=0.004 in women) and presence of adoption backgrounds in male relatives (p=0.004). There was no statistically significant relationship between age, gender, education level, and onus of infertility, the number of previous referrals for an infertility solution and presence of adoption backgrounds in female relatives.
Conclusion: Adoption as an alternative option to infertility treatment need to be more considered as a medical, social and cultural issue.
