Clinical Trial Summary

This study investigates the effect of virtual reality glasses use and therapeutic touch on pain, anxiety and patient satisfaction in women during intrauterine insemination procedure


Clinical Trial Description

Infertility treatment is a stressful and anxious process that begins when couples are diagnosed with infertility. Infertility treatment is a process that requires the active participation of couples against emotional and physical difficulties. In addition to intensive routine and surgical procedures, the treatment process is a period in which couples should be in constant communication with healthcare professionals. In Turkey, it is estimated that 10-20% of the couples are diagnosed with infertility. In the evaluation of infertile couples,Intrauterine Insemination is a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedure to the process of injecting washed sperm into the uterine cavity close to ovulation. Sperm cells taken from men are injected directly into the uterus and left at a point closer to the fertilization point. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of virtual reality glasses use and therapeutic touch on pain, anxiety and patient satisfaction in women during intrauterine insemination procedure. This randomized controlled study was conducted at Ondokuz Mayis University Training and Research Hospital, Infertility polyclinic between January 2022 and April 2022. Volunteer women undergoing Intrauterine Insemination have been included. Participants were randomly assigned to the intervention or the control group using a computer-generated list. A data collection form including socio-demographic and obstetric characteristics such as age, educational status, duration of infertility, previous pregnancies, births, abortion/curettage numbers, Spielberger State Anxiety Scale and Visual Analog Scale scores was used for each patient. After obtaining written informed consent, the data collection form, Spielberger State Anxiety Scale and VAS scoring scale (pain and nursing satisfaction) were applied to both groups by face to face interview during the day giving appointment for Intrauterine Insemination. Immediately after the questionnaires were applied, the nurse gave virtual reality glasses. and glasses will be put on before the process starts and training will be given to continue watching the video while wearing the glasses for 30 minutes. Second group participants the nurse researcher will start the application by taking an appropriate hand of the patient between his hands and hold it for 30 minutes. Participant in the control group received standard care (verbal information about procedure and a short written information about the procedure) and no intervention (virtual reality or therapotik touch) was performed.The IBM SPSS (Statistical package for the Social Sciences) 23.0 package program was used to evaluate the data obtained in the study. ;
