Unexplained infertility categorization based on female laparoscopy and total motile sperm count, and its impact on cumulative live-births after one in-vitro fertilization cycle. A retrospective cohort study involving 721 cycles.

Reprod Med Biol 2021 Apr 1;20(2):190-198. Epub 2021 Feb 1.

Centre of IVF and Human Reproduction Institute of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Sir Ganga Ram Hospital New Delhi India.

Purpose: To determine how subcategorizing unexplained infertility based on female laparoscopy and total-motile-sperm-count assessment would impact cumulative live-births after one in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle.
