Adversities of Being Infertile: The Experience of Jordanian Women

A qualitative descriptive study of the experiences of infertile women in Jordan. Four key themes emerged: the adversity of incomplete being, the social adversity of being infertile, the adversity of another wife, and the adversity of changes in the marital relationship. These adversities need to be conceptualized within a framework that can be used to empower and counsel infertile women.
