Explaining Unexplained Infertility (Video)


It took us 13 cycles to get pregnant with our first child.

I was temping and charting and we just weren’t getting pregnant.

After six months of trying, we were evaluated.

I was ovulating and his sperm was great.

But we weren’t getting pregnant.

Our first step with fertility treatments was Clomid combined with intrauterine insemination (IUI).

I was closely monitored and my husband’s sperm was placed inside my uterus when my body was releasing at least one egg.

But we still weren’t getting pregnant.

It just didn’t make any sense.

“Unexplained Infertility,” our Reproductive Endocrinologist said.

According to the American Fertility Association (AFA), 12% – 25% of all cases of infertility are classified as unexplained.

Unexplainable doesn’t mean untreatable, however.

In this video, produced by the AFA, Dr. Jason Griffith, of the Houston Fertility Institute, helps to explain Unexplained Infertility.
