Unsolved infertility

What Is Unsolved infertility?

If you’ve tried to conceive for a year or more without success, even though your doctor has found no problem, such as blocked fallopian tubes, you may have unexplained infertility. This does not mean that you can’t get pregnant. Thousands of couples in this situation have healthy babies naturally or with the help of fertility treatments.

Causes of unexplained infertility

Many fertile people may be diagnosed with unexplained infertility because they have not been successful in reproducing after a year of trying. In addition, some healthcare providers think that a likely cause of unexplained infertility is that tests used to assess fertility might have missed defects due to broken test procedures. 

The causes of unexplained infertility usually involve:

  • Poor sperm quality
  • Ovulation problems
  • Poor egg quality


Common treatments for unexplained infertility include:

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

It involves placing the treated sperms directly in the patient’s uterus for a better chance of conceiving in case of unexplained female infertility.

Clomid Tablets

Clomid tablets help the ovaries to release more eggs each month. Most fertility specialists use this drug with IUI and an intrauterine device-assisted insemination technique.

Injectable gonadotropins

These are medications that stimulate egg production usually reduce the odds of having a miscarriage and increase success rates for those looking for fertility treatments.

IVF treatment 

In vitro fertilization is the most effective treatment for unexplained infertility. When IVF is performed in cases of unexplained infertility, it sometimes also involves Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injections. Fertility doctors usually don’t turn to IVF in unexplained infertility cases until other conventional treatments have failed.

So, how long should you wait before initiating fertility treatment? The answer depends on so many factors that might increase or decrease your chance of naturally conceiving and your personal preferences for seeking treatments or not.
