Abstract

Infertility amongst women with normal menstrual rhythm, normal pelvic anatomy and normal patterns, is a common and complex clinical problem requiring a comprehensive approach. There are many areas of debate concerning the relative importance of different alleged pathologies and the efficacy of treatments directed at them. It is for these reasons that a strict approach to patient definition and selection should be maintained, although there is no universally adopted systematic approach to either.
