Unexplained primary fertility

Postby giftarize on Mon Mar 04, 2013 10:50 pm

I recently turned 31 and after 3 years trying in September I underwent investigations through laposcopy and hysterscopy as well as dye test. They found that the flow is good but the left is a bit slow and determined it unexplainable. I have now been referred for ivf and accepted for 1 cycle - what should I expect? Will I have to go through investigations again with the clinic? How long are results valid for?

Weight and BMI was accepted - should I be doing anything else?

Currently taking folic acid at night - should I be taking it earlier in the day?

Having been told that it is unexplainable is harder as you don't know what to do to assist, please help!

Infertility is not my area of expertise, so I'm afraid I can't answer your questions myself.

This website gives you informatin about how IVF is performed and should help you find out what to expect:

The clinic will probably only repeat the virology, blood groups and semen analysis.
Keep your weight stabel by being sensible, exercise as normal.
It doesn't really matter what time you take the folic acid

... I had to go back to remember your last question!
Unexplained is a tough diagnosis but your age and weight are now the important factors so just relax as they're good.
