For people diagnosed with unexplained infertility getting an explanation for their infertility is surely empowering for them. They know exactly who it is, whether it’s the male problem or a female problem. They know what it is, and hopefully, there’s a solution that will give them the quickest way, the best chance of fertility conception.

Genetic test results - what emotional impact can they have on me?

Genetic tests are usually recommended by fertility specialists to patients who have had no success conceiving on their own, have unexplained infertility, or had previous implantation failures, miscarriages of a history of genetic disease running in their family. While you are waiting for your genetic test results full of anticipation, you might be wondering how the result will affect you, emotionally.
