Approximately one in five couples will experience unexplained infertility. To be given the diagnosis of unexplained infertility can be very unsatisfactory. Many people feel that it is easier to cope with a definite reason for your inability to conceive.
Infertility may be said to be ‘unexplained’ if the woman is ovulating regularly, has open fallopian tubes with no adhesions, fibrous growths or endometriosis, and if the man has normal sperm production. Intercourse must take place frequently, at least twice a week, particularly around the time of ovulation, and the couple must have been trying to conceive for the previous two years.
Following a diagnosis of unexplained infertility, it is very likely you will be referred for IVF treatment.
