Infertility is often equated with pain and stress in our society and a woman without child is considered as “Barren”. Inability to have children is undeniably a very distressing experience, which can leads to psychological disturbances. With the objective to assess the stress level among primary infertile women undergoing intrauterine insemination and to determine the association of stress level with sociodemographic variable, this study was conducted in infertility clinic, PGIMER, Chandigarh. The samples were selected by total enumeration technique. The data was collected in the period of July –September, 2015 by using tools –Sociodemographic profile proforma, Clinical profile proforma and Newton’s fertility problem inventory. A total of 102 subjects were enrolled for the study. Stress level of primary infertile women related to infertility was assessed and recorded. Stress level assessment was done before intrauterine insemination. As per Newton’s fertility problem inventory findings, 35% of the subjects had very high stress, 39% had moderately high stress and 29% had average stress level.
