Unexplained Infertility

Despite thorough investigation approximately 5-10% of couples cannot be given a scientifically valid reason as to why they have not conceived. This can be difficult for them to accept and proves that there is still a lot we have to learn in human reproduction. It is pleasing to say however that modern Assisted Reproduction Techniques are quite effective in treating this group. Quite often after an initial treatment cycle because of what we learn we can give these couples more of an idea as to the basis and consequences of their infertility.

In our society 5-10% of couples have varying degrees of infertility.
