This portfolio consists of three sections: a qualitative research study, a case study and an article, with the overall aim of exploring women’s psychological experience of their fertility and reproductive health. The aim has been, across the three sections, to depict how women try to make sense of their fertility issues, the complexity of this experience, and how this impacts on other areas of their life. Fertility issues have been medicalised due to the rise of and focus on developing artificial reproductive techniques to assist people in conceiving: The focus has been on solving a medical problem with a medical solution, and less on the more psychosocial elements of infertility and artificial reproductive techniques. It is hoped that these three sections will help extend our understanding and insight into the experience of the psychosocial repercussions that fertility issues and egg donation can have for women.
