"This category is to be used when persons without a diagnosis are suspected of having an abnormal condition, without signs or symptoms, which requires study, but after examination and observation, is found not to exist."
You can't diagnose the patient with Male infertility; if she is not able to get pregnant because her partner is infertile, then she doesn't have a problem; her partner does. You can't vicariously treat her partner's inability to get her pregnant by treating her. Diagnoses are to be applied to the person they pertain to, so the man's infertility is the man's problem; having an infertile partner is not a diagnosable condition. You thought she might have been infertile, and after investigation, found that her reproductive system is functioning properly, so the only applicable diagnosis I can think of, would be the one I mentioned above. Hope that helps!
