  i think it is E.

the picture showed she had temp increase. so she had anovulation. sperm count was normal. diagnotic laparoscopy with hydrotubation showed normal pelvic anatomy although pt has a chronic pelvic pain. there is nowhere said that pt has s&s of PCOS. so the answer at this point is E. most of the time, we dont find any cause for infertility.
