Background & Aims: Primary infertility may affect communication skills, occupational and physical health of women. The purpose of this research was to investigate the impact of primary infertility on different domains of life quality in an Iranian community.

Materials & Methods: The research was performed on 60 primary infertile women seeking infertility treatment and 60 fertile women with similar sociodemographic characteristics. World Health Organization’s QOL-BREF questionnaire was used to investigate health related life quality.

Results: The sociodemographic characteristics between two groups were similar with no significant difference, except menstruation. Compared with the fertile women, the women with primary infertility had significantly lower ratios of quality of life in both physical (P=0.04) and psychological (P=0.01) domains. There was no difference in physical and environmental domains of life quality between two groups.

Conclusion: Women with primary infertility need psychological and social support to improve their life quality.
