Without a known cause, it is difficult for infertility doctors to treat the problem or to predict the chance of success. Not knowing the cause for your infertility also gets in the way of decision making and coping. It leaves fertility patients in the position of grasping for a cure and not knowing when to stop.
One of the best places to start understanding this frustrating infertility diagnosis is by listening to this great Creating a Family show interviewing a leading reproductive endocrinologist on Unexplained Infertility: Causes and Treatment.
You might also find our interview on the Causes and Treatments of Secondary Infertility to be helpful if you are facing the diagnosis of secondary infertility (the inability to get pregnant and have a baby after successfully giving birth).
Many more Creating a Family radio interviews with experts, videos, blogs, fact sheets, and Q and A’s with Experts on unexplained infertility can be found at the icons below.
