Unexplained infertility is frustrating but there are fertility treatments to help you get pregnant fast.

Dr Randy Morris MD-The BOARD CERTIFIED fertility expert with weekly TTC tips on InfertilityTV

Unexplained infertility is perhaps the most frustrating diagnosis to have. You have been trying to get pregnant, have done a whole bunch of tests and everything comes back normal. So what do you do? Find out on today’s episode of infertility TV

First make sure you have completed all of the standard infertility tests. You should have checked to make sure you ovulate, that your uterus is normal and fallopian tubes are open, that your ovarian reserve is normal, an ultrasound of your pelvis is normal, your thyroid is functioning as it should and your husband has a normal semen analysis and CapScore

If all of those tests are normal, then you can consider a few different treatments to speed up the time it takes for you to get pregnant. All of these treatment have two things in common. They use some kind of fertility medication and some method to increase the chance of getting his sperm to meet your egg.

Let's start with the easiest treatment. This uses the fertility medication called Clomid or clomiphene citrate. The idea here is that normally you release only one egg each month. USing Clomid, you can increase the number of eggs released and have a better chance that one of those eggs will get fertilized and implant in your uterus.

It's very important that your doctor monitors you to determine when you ovulate. At the time of ovulation, instead of just having intercourse alone, consider having an IUI or intrauterine insemination. This will increase the number of sperm that gets into your fallopian tubes and increase the chance for pregnancy. This is true even if your partner has normal sperm testing.

You can try clomid with IUI up to four times. If you are still not pregnant, consider moving to a different treatment.

Another option is to use injection of fertility medication instead of clomid. Injections, like Follistim or Gonal F are more potent than Clomid. It is common to get more eggs to develop. As a result, the pregnancy rates with injections are higher than for Clomid. You should also do IUI with injections.

A word of caution here. The pregnancy rates are better which is great but there is a higher risk of having a multiple pregnancy compared to Clomid. And we are not just talking twins. There is a higher chance for having triplet quadruplets or even more.

One of the best treatments for unexplained infertility is IVF. The pregnancy rates are higher than they are for any other treatment. An added advantage is you get more control over your risk of multiple pregnancy. The best IVF programs in the world in 2019 put one embryo at a time into the uterus and so the risk for a multiple pregnancy is only a few percentage points.

There you have it! Three great tips for how to get pregnant fast with unexplained infertility.
