Abstract


Purpose: This study aimed to review the history and examine the current service system of the Korea Counseling Center for Fertility and Depression (KCCFD) by analyzing the characteristics of its users, and to suggest measures to improve the system.

Methods: Data on 883 infertile patients counseled through the KCCFD’s counseling service over the last 2 years were collected for a demographic analysis. The clinical information of 396 female subjects who received regular counseling after registration were analyzed to investigate factors influencing depression.
Finally, a matching sample t-test was conducted to verify the effects of the counseling service.

Results: The screening test showed that 50.7% of the infertile patients in our study were registered at our centers and received registered counseling. A total of 27.6% of the subjects was identified as being at high-risk for depression, and 71.3% of those at high-risk received registered counseling. The logistic regression analysis showed that being a homemaker, having a history of psychiatric disorder, and having undergone in vitro fertilization three or more times were significant factors that predict moderate or more severe depression. The female infertility patients who underwent counseling showed a significant decrease in depression, anxiety, general stress, and infertility stress.

Conclusion: Screening tests need to be performed prior to assisted reproductive technology if any of the 3 risk factors is present. The rate of registered counseling, regular follow-up using psychological tests, and cross-linkages with affiliated agencies should serve as the metrics for the quality control of the counseling service. Early detection of individuals at high-risk for depression calls for an activated liaison among affiliated agencies and expanded regional centers.
