Unexplained Infertility

Medically reviewed by Norbert Gleicher, MD, FACOG, FACS - Written by CHR Staff - Updated on Nov 15, 2014


The first step in treating unexplained infertility is finding the right diagnosis. Whenever patients come to us or request a second opinion from us with such a diagnosis, we very carefully reevaluate their diagnostic work-ups, with special focus on the four medical conditions (endometriosis, tubal disease, premature ovarian aging (POA) and immunological infertility), which are frequently missed and lead to the misdiagnosis of unexplained infertility.

CHR Explains

Following such a policy, the prevalence of cases at CHR where we cannot identify the real cause of a couple's infertility has become very small. Once exact causes are established, we can tailor the treatment to address the individual underlying causes, leading to much better treatment outcomes.
