Religion has been an important tool in treating the difficulties expereinced by infertile females. This study was conducted to determine the relationship between religious coping styles and infertility adjustment, infertility distress, and satisfaction with life in a group of women with infertility problems. The study was a cross-sectional study that involved a convenience sample of 168 women with infertility living in Turkey. A weak negative correlation was found between women's positive religious coping and infertility distress. There was no significant correlation between women's negative religious coping and their infertility adjustment, infertility distress, and satisfaction with life.
