Online medical second opinion on infertility. 1234 Infertility is a very big topic, especially in industrialized countries. Fertility rates are declining. Women are taking their time to have their first child or more children. Infertility is a hot topic, especially today. What are the most common causes of infertility? Dr. Anton Titov, MD. What are causes of infertility by age group? There are probably different causes of infertility for people in 20 to 30, 30 to 40 and older than 40 age brackets. Online medical second opinion on infertility. 1234 (Reproductive Medicine, Fertility specialist, UCSF). Dr. Heather Huddleston, MD. For the younger patients (20 to 35 years of age) infertility causes in 20% to 40% of situations are linked to a male factor. Then 20% to 30% of infertility causes in the younger group involve problems with the Fallopian tubes. It could be, for example, a blocked Fallopian tube. Ovulatory dysfunction is a cause of infertility in about 20%. The remaining infertility cases are a generally unexplained infertility. This means that unfortunately we are not able to put our finger on exactly what is the problem. Many unexplained infertility are multifactorial. There is a little bit of male infertility factor and a little bit of ovulatory dysfunction. These causes of infertility may be combining. They are contributing to make it more difficult to get pregnant. As women get older than 35, age is a very big factor in inability to get pregnant. There may be other contributing factors. Contributing factors to infertility for older women are the same as for the younger women. They are blocked fallopian tubes and ovulatory dysfunction. Dr. Heather Huddleston, MD. But the impact of older age makes it much more difficult to get pregnant. The reason is this. As women get older, women’s eggs become flawed from a genetic standpoint. Release of genetically damaged egg during ovulation does not lead to pregnancy. Increased genetic defects in eggs means that on any given month women have a lower chance of getting pregnant. Because the egg that is released during ovulation may just not be fit to create a pregnancy. Online medical second opinion on infertility. 1234 Dr. Anton Titov, MD. There is a term “unexplained infertility”. What does unexplained infertility mean? Dr. Anton Titov, MD. What are causes of unexplained infertility upon a detailed diagnostic examination? Online medical second opinion on infertility. 1234 Unfortunately we don’t always know what causes unexplained infertility. We are often not able to discover the exact cause of unexplained infertility. There are certain problems we can test for. We can test a male partner. He may have abnormal semen analysis (spermogram). We can test if the fallopian tubes are blocked. Dr. Heather Huddleston, MD. We can see if the uterine environment is normal. We can see if a woman is ovulating every month. Ovulatory dysfunction may be present. All these things could be normal. But the couple could still be having trouble getting pregnant. Many of unexplained infertility causes may have to do with the sperm not being able to get to the egg. Sperm might have a problem to get through the cervix. Maybe the egg isn’t allowing the sperm to get into the egg (oocyte). There are so many different possibilities that cause infertility. Probably for every case of unexplained infertility there are multiple contributing factors. In women older than 35, age could be a problem. The impact of age could be the cause of “unexplained infertility”. So older age of woman makes it more difficult to get pregnant. We are not able to discover where and how the problem of infertility is happening. The overall quality of egg (ovum) might simply not be good enough for pregnancy. Dr. Heather Huddleston, MD. Diagnosis of unexplained infertility is very frustrating for couples. They don’t like having unexplained infertility. It’s much easier in some ways to have a specific diagnosis. It is better to have a tangible diagnosis that you understand. But the good news is that unexplained infertility is very treatable. We find that women particularly in their 30’s are able to be treated successfully. Even women in late 30’s can be treated successfully for unexplained infertility. Unexplained infertility treatments include intrauterine insemination, medications to boost ovulation, or IVF (in vitro fertilization). Medications are, for example, Clomid / clomiphene citrate).

If patients are not constrained financially from being able to access infertility treatments, then therapy of unexplained infertility are successful. Dr. Heather Huddleston, MD. We estimate that even 70% of women under 40 years of age can be treated successfully for unexplained infertility. Dr. Anton Titov, MD. Unexplained infertility treatment.
