Background: General self-concept refers to the set of emotions and perceptions of one's self, while sexual self-concept refers to the perception of each individual as a sexual being. General and sexual self-concepts are affected by various life problems including infertility. Infertility can affect people's self-concept by affecting their personal and sexual life. Lack of negative mood management can also affect people's self-concept by creating psychological problems such as anxiety and depression. Mood regulation skill as a protective factor for people experiencing psychological problems in their relationships, will modify emotional responses which in turn leads to improve their physical and psychological health through positive and adapted behaviors. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of mood regulation education on general and sexual self-concept in infertile women.
Methods: This clinical trial study conducted in 1397, 34 infertile women referred to the only infertility center in Gorgan who were included in the study and were selected by available sampling method, (n=17) in the intervention group and (n=17) in the control group. Education program of mood regulation was performed in four, 90- minute-long sessions of a one-time workshop for individuals in the intervention group. Inclusion criteria were: Iranian nationality, high school education, not having any stepchild, primary infertility, absence of known physical and psychological illnesses (according to their own declaration), not taking psychiatric medication, non-drug addiction of both the woman and the spouse and not having any life skills training. Exclusion criteria were: not attending in educational sessions more than once and unwillingness to continue this study. Both groups completed Rogers' Persian self-concept questionnaire and Snell's self-concept questionnaire before, immediately and one month after the intervention. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software (version 16), repeated measures analysis of variance, and adjusted Bonferroni test (P <0.05).
Results: In this study, the mean age of the samples in the intervention group was 33.18 ± 6.07 and 30.41 ± 4.54 in the control group. Results showed that before intervention, general self-concept in intervention group was 9.41, positive sexual self-concept 123.76, negative 12.17, and situational was 43.17. One month after intervention, general self-concept was 6.21, positive sexual self-concept 139.29, negative 5.70 and situational was 54.23. The results of repeated analysis of variance showed that mood regulation education had a positive effect on promotion of general self-concept and sexual self-concept of infertile women one month after intervention, therefore this effect was statistically significant.
 Conclusions: Mood regulation education improves the general and sexual self-concept of infertile women and can be used in health care, infertility and midwifery centers.
