Unexplained Infertility

When is Infertility “Unexplained”

Conception is a very complex process on a cellular level. Sometimes it seems so complicated, it is a wonder that anyone gets pregnant at all! For this reason, the precise cause of infertility in any one couple may never be identified by any number of tests. This is the so-called broad category of “unexplained infertility”. Couples in this category simply have no obvious reason preventing their conception. That’s what “unexplained infertility” means. It also means that the couple may be treated by any of the available therapies. The good news is that fertility therapy works as well in couples with unexplained infertility as in those with specific causes of infertility.
