Unexplained infertility

I have a good friend who is 2 months younger than me (25) and both of our daughters are the same age and were born 2 days apart (they are both 4). Her and her husband have been TTC since shortly after their first. After a year they went to see a fertility specialist and both were fully checked out.. prognosis was unexplained infertility. We talk about it sometimes and I can really tell she wants to have another one still even though she said shes stopped thinking about it (but they havent prevented it either). I just feel bad because now after 4 years DH and I have decided to TTC baby #2 and I get excited talking about it with her and shes excited to I can tell. But it makes me sad because I know she wants another one and I wish there was something I could do to help her. She is such a good mother and I dont understand why this happens to such good people. The only treatment option she was given was IVF and thats not something she wants to do. Also were military and $10k a pop isnt exactly in the budget of a military family lol.. I just wonder if anyone has had any luck after this prognosis? If there any info I can give her to help her out?

Maybe she is just missing her ovulatory window?? Some womens window for catching the egg is very little.

She did all of the TTC stuff, BBT charting, ovulation tests and anything else you can think of.

I would not jump right into IVF and I am not sure what she has all tried. Just because she is unexplained doesnt mean something like Clomid and her doing a trigger shot and timed intercourse wouldnt work. Also she needs a 2nd opinion on what her next steps should be. She also has the option of doing IUI which is a ton cheaper than IVF. Has her husband been checked? The clinic I will be going to(I hope) for IVF offers military families a discount. I am not sure how much but it is listed on their site that it is offered.
