Then 40 patients by simple random selected and randomly divided into two experimental (n = 20) and control (n = 20) groups. Group reality therapy in the experimental group were administered over 10 sessions 1 and half hour. The control group received no intervention. Both groups after treatment and before IUI, were tested again. The results of the statistical parameters (such as t-independent group, covariance analysis) were analyzed.
