Conditions We Treat: Unexplained Infertility

Unexplained infertility occurs when women or couples are experiencing infertility for no obvious medical reason. About 20% of those who undergo a fertility evaluation get this result.

Unexplained Infertility: Why Choose Johns Hopkins

  • Our specialists treat many patients who have unexplained infertility, giving us a great deal of experience in providing the most effective treatment options.
  • We understand the frustration you may feel and will work together to develop a personalized treatment plan that works best for you.

Unexplained Infertility: What to Expect

After your first consultation, you will undergo a complete fertility evaluation. For men, we test sperm count and motility. For women, we examine the fallopian tubes, uterus and ovarian reserve (egg supply) and determine if ovulation occurs regularly. Unexplained infertility will be diagnosed if the evaluation results are normal.

Patients with unexplained infertility have many options to help them have a baby. Treatments such as fertility medications combined with IUI (intrauterine insemination) or IVF (in vitro fertilization) can dramatically improve pregnancy rates for women/couples with unexplained infertility.
