Considerations on tubal sterility of presumed psychogenic origin
1 2nd Obstetric and Gynecological Clime, University of Padua, Seat of Verona (Italy)

The Authors evaluate a certain number of patients presenting primary or secondary infertility, in the search of any emotional problem which could be responsible for it. While it is hard to demonstrate the psychological origin in some cases of infertility and to quantify its real incidence, the Authors point out the importance of ruling out any psychological factor at the beginning of the work-up for the infertile couple and particularly while ascertaining the tubal patency through the hysterosalpingography, a diagnostic technique which can be very stressing for women.
