Objectives: To investigate the effect of demographic variables on women having miscarriages, and to examine the
stress level and impact of the stressful events among these women.
Material and Methods: A sample of the research comprised of (N=100) women having miscarriage. The age range
of the participants was 15-35 years. Purposive sampling technique was used to collect the data from four different

period was from March 2015 to june 2015. Demographic information sheet, perceived Stressed Scale (PSS), & The
Impact of Life Event Scale-R (ILES-R) were used as measures. Simple linear regression analysis was computed for
Age, duration of marriage, children women’s status, & history of miscarriages as independent variable while PSS &
IES-R as outcome variables.
