Unexplained Infertility: Success Rate at CHR
The Center for Human Reproduction’s Dr. David H. Barad explains how most patients with “unexplained infertility” eventually get a definite diagnosis at CHR. CHR is able to do this by examining subtle, often overlooked factors.
People want to know if they have unexplained infertility, what can we do for them? What kind of chances do we have of achieving their goal? Obviously the chance of success is going to depend on what the actual cause we discover is.
By definition someone with unexplained infertility has been told, has had general testing done and their testing results were normal. So the differences are fairly subtle. Once we find those differences and respond to them these people should have the best chances of success for their age group. Now I say in their age group because somebody who is twenty-five is obviously going to have a much better chance of success than somebody who is forty-four. Each case is different, but one would expect somebody who is mostly normal, so normal that somebody else couldn’t find the problem, is probably going to have a very high degree of success.
