Abstract
This study sought to determine the level of interest in online peer support among infertility patients, factors associated with such interest, and preferences for features of an online peer support network. A sample of 236 men and 283 women (n = 519) seeking fertility treatment were recruited from four clinics in Ontario and Quebec, Canada. Participants completed an anonymous online questionnaire assessing demographics, perceived stress and fertility characteristics, in addition to interest in and preferences for online infertility peer support. Most men (80.1%) and women (89.8%) expressed interest in online peer support, with perceived stress being related to interest among both men and women. Non-White ethnicity and lower income were related to greater interest among men. Patients reported a preference for mobile accessibility, monitored peer-to-peer communication, and links to information. Men and women, particularly those with high levels of perceived stress, expressed interest in online peer support and shared similar preferences for features irrespective of fertility characteristics. Demographic characteristics and perceived stress were related to a desire for more personalized support options.
