Description
  1. The dataset contains Outcome measurements of Fertility Problem Inventory (FPI), the Infertility Self-Efficacy Scale (ISE), and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). The FPI is a 46-item validated questionnaire that assesses infertility-related stress, and shows good reliability and validity. Scores are summated into five domains: social concern, sexual concern, relationship concern, rejection of childfree lifestyle, and need for parenthood. The shortened 10-item version of the 20-item STAI was used to measure state anxiety. The ISE is a self-report questionnaire consisting of 16 items that probe into the respondents' perceptions about their ability to deal with various aspects of fertility treatment.The dataset also contains 10 in-depth interviews with the women who received 8-week acupuncture intervention. Interviews typically explored the women's experience of infertility, its psychologic impact, and the perceived impact of acupuncture on cognitive control. Interview data were digitally recorded and transcribed verbatim by a professional transcriber. Transcripts of the interviews were de-identified and checked for transcription accuracy.
