What are the Symptoms of Unexplained Infertility?
If active sexual life without any contraception does not lead to pregnancy even after a year, the couple surely needs medical assistance. Women, especially in their mid-thirties, often have difficulty conceiving, and only with appropriate treatment are they able to get pregnant. But even after numerous infertility tests and treatments if the doctor finds the results to be normal and the woman is still unable to get pregnant, it can be a case of idiopathic or unexplained infertility.
Treatment for Unexplained Infertility
If a woman is diagnosed with unexplained infertility, after undergoing different tests, she should consult a fertility specialist who can help her cope up the following issues:
- Managing mental and physical stress
- Getting adequate and quality sleep
- Good and healthy diet
- Supplementation advice
- Taking care of digestive health
If the woman’s health is not taken good care of, the body, as well as the reproductive system may not function properly and be subjected to increased stress levels. It is also important to reduce alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking since they cause more harm than good. They play a huge role in causing unexplained infertility.
Although many treatment methods such as expectant management, intrauterine insemination (IUI) with clomiphene citrate (to enhance ovulation) are used to help women with idiopathic infertility, in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) most often provides the desired results.
In ICSI, instead of allowing the sperm to fertilize the egg in a dish naturally, a healthy sperm is injected directly into the cytoplasm of an egg using a fine glass needle.
