Dr. P. Kanagavalli

An experimental study was carried out at infertility clinics. This study aims to assess the couples knowledge regarding infertility and their level of anxiety. Purposive sample of 200 couple have been chosen while they were visiting the clinic. A structured questionnaire was constructed for the purpose of assessing the knowledge regarding infertility and Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale was used to measure the level of anxiety among them. Data were collected before and after video assisted teaching programme. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyse the data. With respect to the level of knowledge majority 120 (60 %) of them had inadequate knowledge, 80 (40 %) of them had moderate knowledge on diagnosis of infertility whereas in post test 160 (80 %) of them had adequate knowledge, 40 (20 %) of them had moderate knowledge and none of them showed inadequate knowledge in post test. The mean and standard deviation of pretest knowledge among couples (m= 20.03, S.D= 3.28) were lesser than that of posttest knowledge (m= 32.9, S.D = 2.80) and thus indicates the effectiveness of Video assisted teaching programme. With respect to the level of anxiety majority146 (73 %) of them had severe anxiety, 54 (27 %) of them had moderate anxiety whereas in post test 134 (67 %) of them had mild anxiety, 166 (33 %) had moderate anxiety and none of them showed severe anxiety in post test. The mean and standard deviation of pretest level of anxiety among couples (m= 48.03, S.D=2.28) were higher than that of posttest level of anxiety (m= 20.9, S.D = 1.80) and thus indicates the effectiveness of Video assisted teaching programme. Thus the study findings accepted the research hypothesis that there is significant difference in the level of knowledge and anxiety following the video assisted teaching programme among infertile couple. There is statistically significant negative relationship between the pretest level of knowledge of the infertile couples and pre test anxiety level (*P
