This study investigated the influence of health knowledge on 10 infertile women by employing a qualitative approach to gain an in-depth and holistic understanding of them. The women were interviewed, and their data were analyzed using the NVIVO 10 software. It was determined that these subjects’ desire to communicate with their doctors motivated their learning. They studied on the Internet and exchanged information with other patients. This provided the women with the ability to choose doctors that most suited their needs. They also discussed the treatments with their doctors and thus perceived the treatments more positively. Moreover, they believed that the information and suggestions given by other infertile women were valuable and constructive. This study showed that infertile patients have a need to learn more about their treatments. This can be accomplished by professional educators and by increasing the patients’ health literacy. Associated sessions can also be held by public health centers to further educate infertile women.
