Bringing a new life into the world is a dream cherished by many. However, for some couples, the path to parenthood can be elusive, leading them to the enigmatic realm of unexplained infertility. At India IVF Fertility, we understand the frustration and confusion that can accompany this condition. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve deep into the mysteries of unexplained infertility, providing you with the knowledge you need to navigate this challenging journey.

What is Unexplained Infertility?

Unexplained infertility is like a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Couples facing this perplexing challenge often find themselves asking questions without clear answers. Let’s start by unravelling the first layer of this mystery:

How many couples have unexplained infertility?

The prevalence of unexplained infertility is surprisingly high, affecting approximately 10-20% of couples struggling to conceive. This statistic underscores the importance of understanding this condition better.

Is it possible to get pregnant with unexplained infertility?

Yes, it is! Unexplained infertility doesn’t mean that pregnancy is impossible. It simply means that traditional diagnostic tests have not identified a specific cause for infertility.

Symptoms and Causes

What are the causes of unexplained infertility?

The precise causes of unexplained infertility remain elusive, but several factors could contribute to this enigma. These may include:

  • Subtle hormonal imbalances
  • Egg quality issues
  • Sperm abnormalities
  • Uterine problems
  • Fallopian tube dysfunction
  • Unidentified immune system factors

Diagnosis and Tests

How is unexplained infertility diagnosed?

The diagnosis of unexplained infertility is a process of exclusion. It involves a series of tests and evaluations to rule out known causes of infertility. These tests may include:

  • Hormone testing
  • Ovulation tracking
  • Semen analysis
  • Tubal patency tests
  • Imaging studies
  • Hysterosalpingography (HSG)

Management and Treatment

What are treatments for unexplained infertility?

Navigating the labyrinth of unexplained infertility requires a personalised approach. At India IVF Fertility, we offer a range of treatments tailored to your unique needs, including:

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)

ART procedures such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) can help overcome unexplained infertility by bypassing natural barriers to conception.


Fertility medications may be prescribed to regulate ovulation and improve the chances of pregnancy.

Lifestyle Changes

Simple adjustments like maintaining a healthy weight, reducing stress, and avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol can positively impact fertility.

Improved Timing of Intercourse

Strategic timing of intercourse can maximise the chances of conception. Our experts can guide you in optimising your fertility window.


Is there a way to prevent unexplained infertility?

Preventing unexplained infertility may not always be possible, given its elusive nature. However, leading a healthy lifestyle, seeking timely medical advice, and addressing any underlying health conditions can contribute to overall reproductive health.


In the world of fertility, unexplained infertility remains a captivating puzzle. While its causes may remain hidden, hope shines through with advancements in assisted reproductive technology and expert guidance. At India IVF Fertility, we are committed to helping you unravel the mysteries of unexplained infertility and embark on your journey to parenthood.
