Ever since the importance of the psychological aspects of infertility was recognized, researchers have been trying to define adaptation to this non-developmental crisis. Lately, more popular research has been concerned with the question of which factors contribute to better adaptation, rather than what that adaptation is. The majority of these studies are carried out with women who still face infertility, while the women who became parents after facing this crisis are included in just a few studies. Accordingly, the main aim of this research was to examine the opinion on the factors contributing to better adaptation to infertility, as well as the differences in opinion between women who took on the parental role after coping with infertility and those who did not. For that purpose, the Infertility Adaptation Factors Questionnaire was applied on a sample of 192 respondents. The questionnaire consists of 23 items, with four different factors. In their opinion, among the examined factors, the most important is togetherness and intimacy between partners, which is statistically more important than resources, social support and importance of the parental role, the least important factor in this study. There are no significant differences between those who became parents and those who are still dealing with infertility.
