Background
Spiritual well-being and mental health can be regarded as highly important in infertile women.

Objectives
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship between spiritual wellbeing, mental health and quality of life in infertile women.

Material and methods
In this cross-sectional study, the statistical population of the study consisted of infertile women who referred to hospitals in Shiraz, among whom 247 subjects participated in the study. Paloutzian and Ellison’s Questionnaire of Spiritual Well-Being, Mental Health, Quality of Life and Economic Situation was used in this study. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics methodology, including mean and frequency in the form of tables, charts and Spearman’s Correlation Tests.

Results
Mental status has a statistically significant relationship with spiritual well-being (p = 0.001). Mental health has a statistically significant relationship with mental status (p = 0.001). There was a statistically significant relationship between belief status and spiritual well-being (p = 0.001). The relationship between belief status and mental health was statistically significant (p = 0.001). There was a statistically significant relationship between economic status and belief status (p = 0.001). There was a statistically significant relationship observed between the quality of life and mental status (p = 0.001). Quality of life was seen to have a statistically significant relationship with mental health (p = 0.001). The results also demonstrated that quality of life has a statistically significant relationship with belief status (p = 0.01).

Conclusions
Well-being can help improve the mental status of infertile women. Religious beliefs can guarantee spiritual well-being, and if infertile women have appropriate mental health, their quality of life will increase.
