Diagnostic testing is done to identify the major causes of infertility based on their medical history. In about 10% of all cases, a couple (age less than 35 years old) will get a very unsatisfying result: Unexplained infertility. The diagnostic testing we have available will only identify the major reasons why a couple may have a difficult time getting pregnant but it certainly can not identify all of the reasons. If the fallopian tubes are blocked or there is no sperm, these are obvious major obstacles to becoming pregnant. There are no tests available for more subtle infertility factors such as inadequate egg quality or fertilization failure.
