Hi Dr Sher,
Having heard some of your talks online, I felt reinvigorated and am now determined to find out the cause of my infertility.

I am 25 years old and my husband is 29. We had been trying for a year and five months without seeing a positive test before exploring fertility treatment. We are both healthy, non-smokers and non-drinkers. All of my tests came out ‘perfect’ and I quickly graduated into the unexplained infertility category.

I went straight to IVF at the CRGH clinic in London as I had understood this was the preferred option in my situation. Despite being under stimulated (understandable given my age and the fact it was my first round), we achieved 4 top grade blastocysts and performed a fresh transfer.

My uterine lining and shape was described as ‘excellent’ but unfortunately the transfer failed. I am told it was bad luck and am due to have another transfer soon.

I am quite unsatisfied with the way unexplained infertility has been treated as a diagnosis. My mother has hypothyroidism and I am exploring the idea that there could be an immunological problem.

Would you recommend doing the second transfer? Given my history I have a feeling it will be futile and I should look further into identifying the actual cause first.

Thanks so much for your work.

Kind regards
