Abstract

A Study to Determine the Effectiveness of Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique on Stress, Anxiety and Depression in Infertile Women at a Selected Hospital, Erode. Evaluative approach with pre-experimental design was used for this study where non-probability convenience sampling technique was used to select the samples. Structured interview schedule was used to collect data from 40 samples regarding the level of stress, anxiety and depression. The collected data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings revealed that, among 40 samples, 24 (60%) samples had mild stress in pre-test whereas only 1(2.5%) sample had mild stress and 39 (97.5%) samples had no stress in post-test. In pre-test, 29 (72.5%) samples had mild anxiety and 2 (5%) had severe anxiety whereas in post-test, 33 (82.5%) samples had mild anxiety and 7 (17.5%) had moderate anxiety. In pre-test, 4 (10%) samples had moderate depression and 4 (10%) had severe depression whereas in post-test, none of them had severe depression. This reveals that the level of stress, anxiety and depression was reduced in post-test when compared to pre-test. The paired ‘t’ value for stress, anxiety and depression were 17.20, 8.78 and 9.87 respectively which were greater than the table value at p<0.001 level indicating that the difference in mean was true difference and Progressive Muscle Relaxation Technique was effective in reducing stress, anxiety and depression in infertile women. Significant association was found between family income per capita and type of infertility with the level of stress, age at puberty and previous history of abortion with the level of anxiety and age, family income per capita, age at marriage, duration of marital life, previous history of abortion and type of infertility with the level of depression.
