During pregnancy, each of the couples may experience various changes and problems. In some circumstances like  history of infertility, previous abortions or unwanted pregnancies, that couples pay special attention to pregnancy, the amount of these problems may also increase. The aim of this study was determination  of pregnancy problems in couples with a history of infertility, abortion and unwanted pregnancy.
Methods: In this descriptive study, 120 pregnant couples were examined. Gestational age of women was 28-41 weeks. The couples were divided into 4 groups: history of infertility, abortion, unwanted pregnancy and control group. Then they were compared by using a special questionnaire for the common problems of pregnancy. Also, in each of these groups, correlation between couples’ problems was calculated. The significance level was considered to be 0.05.
Results: In all four groups, women experienced more physical problems than men (p <0.001). In groups with history of infertility (p <0.001) and abortion (p <0.001), each of the couples experienced more physical and mental problems than the control group. There was a positive and significant correlation between couples’ physical problems in all three groups (p <0.05). While in the control group the couples did not correlate
Conclusion: In conditions such as history of infertility, abortion or unwanted pregnancy, due to the importance or stress that pregnancy produce for couples, they may experience more problems during pregnancy. In providing care to this group of people, attention to such records makes it possible, if necessary, we  help these couples to experience better pregnancy
