It is really difficult to find one exact reason to why a woman is not able to conceive or get pregnant. For someone, getting pregnant is not that easy. Sometimes, it might test all your patience levels and take much longer time to finally start seeing the pregnant bellies around.
Infertility could be the reason behind all your unsuccessful efforts to conceive. Despite recent technological advancements in the field of medical science, little has been done to explain unexplained infertility. Dr. Joshua M. Hurwitz tries to explain the causes of unexplained infertility and also highlights the possible treatment option.
Understanding Unexplained Infertility
In many cases, there is no specific reason for the failure of a women to conceive. Such an unexplained infertility is also called “unexplained sub-fertility” or “idiopathic”.
Sometimes, knowing “why” behind any problem can help greatly. Once we know the root cause of it, it becomes quite easy to find the solutions and alternatives fixes for the problem. According to one of the review paper of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)  ,infertility diagnosis is done usually after one year of trying to conceive but in aged couples, it is generally done in just six months.
According to Dr. Joshua, the mystery of unexplained infertility shows that the problem lies somewhere at the molecular level. This makes it really challenging to diagnose the problem with your reproductive system through current medical technologies.
What is the Best Treatment Option for Unexplained Infertility?
Dr. Joshua says that the treatment choice remains the same as those for the cases with easily identifiable problems. There are various treatment options available such as reproductive surgeries, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), IVF, pills, injections, inseminations, and many more.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a process where an egg and a sperm is fertilized outside the body. This procedure is carried out in the laboratory and once the fertilization in completed, the fertilized egg is implanted back in the female uterus wall. From here, the natural growth of the embryo takes place inside the mother. IVF helps doctors to get information on the ovaries, hormones, eggs, embryos, sperm, fertilization and as well. This further helps in bypassing several problems that cannot be diagnosed with the latest medical technology.
IVF is not only an effective treatment for infertility, but also an excellent method to diagnose fertility-related problems. It is the only “diagnostic test” that helps to uncover various unexplained causes for infertility. It helps the fertility doctors to assess the whole fertilization process at every step for a better diagnosis and treatment.
Some of the advantages of IVF are given below
1) It allows fertility doctors to create a controlled environment for the diagnostic process.
2) It also allows doctors to stop in between the process once they diagnose the problem and fix it right there.
Being diagnosed with infertility can shatter all your dreams of having a child. Sometimes, diagnosis of the reason behind infertility might be easy, but in some cases, it might be a difficult task. Such unexplained infertility could make you feel all devastated. But, Dr. Joshua M. Hurwitz says that with the new advancements in the field of medical science, the whole mystery behind unexplained sub-fertility can be explained. IVF is your new ray of hope, to finally dream of having your own family. The only thing your doctor and you should keep in mind while dealing with the unexplained infertility is to go for more aggressive treatment options to fulfil your dream.
Even though that’s not exactly how you planned to have your own babies, but sometimes getting to your destination is more important than the journey you walked through.
