Understanding Unexplained Infertility and Your Treatment Options

We can help you.

Infertility is a distressing problem for a couple, especially when they don’t know why they aren’t able to conceive.

 

The doctors at Signature Women’s Healthcare help couples explore and understand the reasons for their unexplained infertility and the treatment options available.

What is unexplained infertility?

When you have unprotected sex in an effort to try to conceive a child for a year but making that baby just doesn’t happen, you are considered infertile. The condition affects one in eight couples, according to RESOLVE, the National Infertility Association.

 

Usually, the problem can be diagnosed. About one-third of infertility is because of problems with the woman, another third is attributed to the man, and the remaining third of infertility is due to medical issues in both partners, or it’s just unexplained.

 

Time is not on your side when it comes to making babies. The older you are, the more difficult it is to conceive.

 

If you’re under 35 and have been trying for a year to conceive with no success, you should consult your OB/GYN at Signature Women’s Healthcare. If you’re older than 35 and fail to conceive after six months of trying, you should seek help. 

 

Unexplained infertility is frustrating. But even infertility with no known cause can be treated with a wide range of options.

Here’s how we investigate infertility

Our compassionate medical team conducts extensive infertility testing and medical evaluations. These may include ovulation testing, woman’s reproductive organs imaging, hormone testing, and semen analysis.

 

We also discuss your lifestyle, your medications, family history, and other reasons you may be failing to conceive.

Here’s how to treat unexplained infertility

If we can’t find the cause of your infertility, we create a customized treatment plan using assisted reproductive technology (ART) therapies. These may include the following:

Fertility drugs

Fertility medication sometimes can treat cases of unexplained infertility. These drugs include clomiphene citrate or other medicine that stimulate hormones and trigger ovulation. 

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

In IUI, we treat a man’s sperm and then place it into a woman’s vagina or uterus when she’s ovulating. IUI may be accomplished alone or in tandem with fertility drugs.

In vitro fertilization (IVF)

IVF is a process that combines a woman’s eggs and the man’s sperm in a laboratory. After fertilization occurs, one or several embryos are implanted in the woman’s uterus.


The good news is even unexplained infertility often is overcome using these treatment options. If you fear you are infertile, you can schedule an appointment at Signature Women’s Healthcare by calling 678-497-0851 or by using our online booking tool.
