Typically, infertility is caused by a man’s inability to produce sperm or a woman’s poor quality of eggs. However, in some cases, the reason for infertility may not be as clear. Let’s take a closer look at the diagnosis and treatment of unexplained fertility.
Tests used to diagnose unexplained infertility are the same as the general infertility tests which include:
Tests conducted to determine the cause of female infertility include:
If none of these tests have conclusive results and the couple still cannot conceive, the condition may be diagnosed as unexplained infertility.
The treatment for unexplained infertility depends on many factors including how long the couple has been unable to have children, age and personal preferences.
Some of the forms of treatment are:
In the case of men, medication to improve sperm count and testicular function may be prescribed. Similarly, in the case of women, medication may be prescribed to stimulate or regulate ovulation.
This involves placing the healthy sperm directly into the uterus at the time of ovulation.
This involves retrieving the egg and sperm, fertilizing the egg with sperm in a laboratory and returning the fertilized egg or embryo to the uterus where it can develop through the rest of the pregnancy.
ICSI refers to the process of injecting healthy sperm directly into a mature egg.
If either partner’s egg or sperm is of poor quality, IVF may be conducted with sperm of eggs from known or unknown donors.
In such cases, the fertilized embryo developed using the couple’s egg and sperm may be placed in another woman’s uterus for the rest of the pregnancy.
Do not let a diagnosis of unexplained infertility get you down. With the help of medication and modern forms of Assisted Reproductive Technology, you can overcome this issue and have a family of your own.
