What can we do if our fertility tests are normal but we can't conceive?

Doctors often meet with couples where all of the infertility evaluations are normal and still pregnancy is not occurring. If possible, you should meet with an infertility specialist. A gynecologist with special training and certification in reproductive endocrinology and infertility would be optimal.

You and your doctor can review all of the evaluation and history and determine a plan. Conception may occur with little or no medical intervention if you are relatively young and your evaluation has been normal so far.

If conception continues not to occur, stimulation and monitoring of follicular growth and ovulation is recommended, along with regular intercourse as well as timed insemination with a concentrate of your partner's semen. This is called intrauterine insemination.
