Introduction & Objective: Infertility can affect women's health, so spiritual and mental health might be very important in case of infertile women. Therefore, the goal of this study was to investigate the relationship between spiritual well-being, anxiety, depression and emotion in infertile women after assisted reproductive surgical technology.

Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics methodology including mean (standard deviation) and frequency (percentage) in the form of tables, charts, and Spearman Correlation Tests. The SPSS software version 23 was used at 5% P-value.
Results: The results of this study showed that anxiety, depression and some aspects of Garnefsky's emotion were negatively correlated with spiritual well-being.
