You Shouldn't Give Up When Unexplained Infertility Dominates Your
by Dean Caporella
Brian and Karen first heard the term unexplained infertility nine
months into their marriage. It was the last thing they considered
and after almost a year of tests and scans, they started to wonder
whether Karen was actually infertile.
Brian and Karen desperately wanted children. In
fact, they began trying three months before their wedding day to
conceive and wanted to start married life with somewhat of a headstart.
But conception never came...that was five years ago and they are
still childless. A classic scenario for unexplained infertility
but the good news here is they haven't given up.
What Is Unexplained Infertility?
The frustrating part for most couples with this
condition is the term itself. You see, unexplained means exactly
that; no reason can be found yet everything seems to be working
- Karen was ovulating normally - She doesn't have
endometriosis, a disease which can wreak havoc on a woman's menstrual
cycle. - Her PCT(Post-Coital Test) returned positive results and
Brian's sperm count was high.
Everything appeared to be normal but still no baby.
Bad news is after the first twelve months, their fertility issues
basically were unexplainable. That is hard to take for any couple
yet the chances of getting pregnant following this initial period
diminish every year. Strong willied and positive, Brian and Karen
continue to believe it will turn around. They are now strongly considering
Almost one in three couples will conceive within
three years of the initial diagnosis with a range of treatment methods.
The obvious treatment is the use of fertility drugs while a method
known as IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) or artificial insemination
is an option high on the list of "must tries." More radical
but in many cases, effective methods such as IVF will enter the
equation at some stage.
Other Treatment Options
Once more traditional methods have been exhausted
couples will then turn to other possibilities such as herbal treatments
and acupuncture. If you are in this situation at least discuss this
option with your doctor.
There's a theory unexplained infertility is about
your body being out of alignment and it's need to be brought back
into balance. The suggestion is the difference between being fertile
and infertile when the unexplained tag is labelled on a couple is
perhaps, just minor detail.
Brian and Karen recently discovered the benefits
of forums for those couples with fertility issues. It's certainly
an option worth considering, not just for the support factor but
to listen to other couples in similar situations who may have found
Quite often, a couple may have tried a treatment
option you may not have heard about and it could be worth investigating.
Remember to always run it by your doctor before trying anything
new for safety reasons.
