What Is Unexplained Infertility?
Unexplained infertility (UI) is one of the most frequent infertility diagnoses given to women, encompassing up to approximately 30% of all cases. At CHR, we are not convinced that such a diagnosis actually exists; we believe that this is a misleading faux diagnosis that actually impedes patients from receiving appropriate infertility treatments.
A couple is given the diagnosis of unexplained infertility when they suffer from infertility, and undergo a diagnostic workup that fail to reveal a credible underlying cause for their condition. In other words, the diagnosis of UI is reached by default; it is a negative diagnosis, suggesting that a clinical problem exists somewhere but the likely cause for this problem has remained elusive.
