Abstract

Male factor infertility contributes to one-half of all infertile couples. Of these, approximately 40 % have an unknown cause. This subgroup can be divided into separate categories based on the results of two properly obtained semen analyses: idiopathic male infertility (IMI) and unexplained male infertility (UMI). While both groups exhibit normal physical exam findings and endocrine evaluations, they differ in that IMI have abnormal semen analyses, while UMI have normal semen parameters. This chapter will highlight the potential etiologies of UMI.
