Cases of infertility tend to increase every year. Prevalence of infertility in the world is 16%. The prevalence of depression and anxiety disorders in infertile women is 57% and 67.2% respectively. Depression affects 350 million people worldwide. Women are twice as likely to be depressed as men. Data from 44 countries showed an anxiety prevalence of 0.9% - 28.3%. The prevalence of infertility in married couples of reproductive ages in Indonesia is 12-15%. Women with infertility more often get stigma than men. Emotional impacts emerge in marriages that result in depression and anxiety that allegedly decreases quality of life.
