Some couples with unexplained infertility can conceive without any help or treatment within one to two years of diagnosis.
This has also not been studied specifically.
Before finding the cause and treating the disease of infertility, couples should have a safe and healthy lifestyle, constantly striving to get pregnant as quickly as possible.
Unexplained infertility is the case of couples who have performed a full reproductive test but have not detected the cause of inability to conceive.
About a quarter of couples have fertility difficulties without knowing the reason.
Unexplained infertility is also controversial. By definition, it’s an exclusionary diagnosis.
Your doctor may make this diagnosis even if you don’t have any problems but can’t conceive.
Other doctors may argue that the results have not actually been fully evaluated.
However, unexplained infertility does not mean that there is no cure.
In fact, the rate of successful self-conception may be higher than most obvious infertility causal diagnoses, depending on the age and duration of attempted pregnancy.
A study of 1,300 women with infertility between the ages of 28 and 36 found that 43% of those who did not receive infertility treatment ended up conceiving and giving birth successfully.
Experts can’t explain this either.
A person is diagnosed with unexplained infertility only after a full range of fertility tests have been performed including:
In women: there are no serious problems in the uterus (evaluated by uterine endoscopy), still ovulation regularly, the fallopian tubes work normally (assessed by HSG), good ovarian reserve (evaluated by blood tests).
In men: normal semen analysis (including the number, movement of sperm and the shape of the sperm).
If any of the above tests are missed, the diagnosis of unexplained infertility may not be accurate.
Some people may also need an abdominal endoscopy to rule out endometriosis as it is difficult to detect with a blood test or ultrasound.
