It can be very confusing for patients to be told by their IVF specialist that they have ‘unexplained infertility’. They find it hard to believe that infertility can still be unexplained despite the medical and technological advances that exist today.
The truth is however that despite cutting edge medical technology, there are some things which still cannot be accurately determined or diagnosed. But the good news is that despite not knowing the exact nature or cause of infertility, it can still be overcome. Unexplained infertility can be treated and couples can become parents. Sometimes, specialists may not know the full reasons behind a problem but are still able to offer a solution and this is certainly true of unexplained infertility.
Only after conducting all the relevant investigations first should unexplained infertility be diagnosed and an appropriate treatment plan considered.
