Objective: To measure the fertility quality of life (QoL) in Saudis infertile women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) using the FertiQoL questionnaire, and establish a reference level of QoL for clinical applications and future studies.
Materials and Methods: The FertiQoL tool, a self-report questionnaire, was completed by 86 women with PCOS in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia who were enrolled for a randomized clinical trial to study the effect of cinnamon for the treatment of PCOS.
Results: A total of 86 copies of eligible FertiQol questionnaires were collected at baseline. The mean total scaled FertiQoL score was 59.1 (SD=12.7). An average Core FertiQoL was 66.12 ± 11.72, and Treatment FertiQoL was 63.40 ± 13.10.
Conclusion: The results of this study provide a baseline QoL in infertile women with PCOS, and could potentially be used as a guide for clinical counseling and future works.
