In the 'Infertility Support' forum on TCOYF's [Taking Care of Your Fertility] website, a link to a free PDF manuscript of a very interesting book was posted:

Fertile-vs-Infertile-Book: How infections affect your fertility and your baby’s health, by Attila Toth, M.D.

Dr. Toth wrote: "If you are in the midst trying to have a family, the book will help you navigate through reproduction with the optimal possible outcome. If all that is behind you, in reading these pages you will understand why things worked out the way they did—why you never had children or if you had them, why they turned out the way they did."

This book discusses how untreated bacterial infections are often the cause of unexplained infertility, as well as miscarriages, still births, sick babies and even cancer and heart disease.

The post containing this link was in response to a woman who mentioned that her unexplained infertility was caused by a bacterial infection that was diagnosed in her husband's second semen analysis.

Their first doctor only tested for the usual stuff -- volume, motility, morphology.

The second doctor also tested for pathogens and found a raging infection that had no symptoms.

This couple conceived immediately after their first round of antibiotics.

They wasted over a year because the first doctor did not test them for bacterial infections.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
