-9. What is unexplained infertility?
Approximately 10% of infertile couples suffer from unexplained infertility. This simply means that the evaluation of the couple has led to no defined reason for infertility. However, a more thorough search for a cause should be made, since many subtle abnormalities may be discovered to explain the infertility. Usually such problems are due to:
  1. Difficulty in picking up the egg by the fallopian tube
  2. Failure of the sperm to fertilize the egg even when in contact with each other
  3. Failure of implantation of the embryo into the uterus
  4. Presence of local or circulating antibodies
  5. Genetic problems
