Initially, patients are diagnosed with infertility when they have been trying for a year without success and the woman is up to 35 years old, and patients over 35 who have been trying for six months without a positive pregnancy test again.
With a blood test (to check for FSH and AMH hormones, among others) and an ultrasound for the woman and a sperm analysis for the man, the doctor can investigate if there is a possible factor that prevents a successful pregnancy.
Unexplained infertility is not something that cannot be treated. There is a reason that it exists, there is simply no specific way to measure or evaluate it by today's means. Don’t forget that there is always the possibility of normal conception.
When hormone and semen levels are normal and there is nothing else that seems to cause infertility, the couple may try for a while - in consultation with the doctor - as long as the difficulty in conceiving does not affect the psychology and the everyday life of the couple. In many cases, couples with unexplained infertility say that their sex life is ruined by constantly trying.
In the case of unexplained infertility, IVF treatment can provide the best possible solution. Through IVF, the process of fertilization, the development of the fetus is closely monitored, along with the dynamics of the eggs and sperm.
The environment of the uterus also plays an extremely important role in a successful pregnancy, as well as a complex immune mechanism that mediates the implantation of the endometrium and can be checked with a series of special tests. For this reason, the uterus must have been examined e.g. by hysteroscopy, before the diagnosis of unexplained infertility.
