Infertility, undermines the foundations of marriage life and by causing a fear of loneliness in old ages, it also increases anxiety and reduces assertiveness in infertile women. Due to the increasing infertility, this study was concerned on comparing the assertiveness, anxiety and life satisfactions of fertile and infertile women. The research design of the study was ex post facto. For this purpose, 139 female from some Medical Center and Hospitals (69 fertile and 70 infertile women aged 20 to 50 years) were selected. Data were collected using Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HRSA, 1959), Index of Marital Satisfaction (IMS, Hudson, 1992) and Assertiveness Schedule (Ruthus, 1973). To analyze the data, multivariate analysis of variance was used. The results showed that life satisfaction (F= 516/154; sig= 0/000) and assertiveness (F= 318/554; sig= 0/000) of infertile women compared to fertile women was lower. While anxiety in infertile women (F= 78/025; sig= 0/000) was higher than fertile women. Based on our findings, life satisfaction and assertiveness in infertile women are less than fertile women and in compared with them more likely to suffer from anxiety. Therefore, the use of methods of reducing anxiety and increasing assertiveness in infertile women is concerned.
