Does Mycoplasma Always Cause Fallopian Tube Blockage?

Mycoplasma infection in the female reproductive tract may lead to serious consequences such as infertility. This is because mycoplasma infections can cause endometritis and salpingitis, and mycoplasma tends to adhere to the mucosal epithelial cells of the fallopian tubes, causing localized hyperplasia of the mucosa and the formation of scarring and then leading to fallopian tube blockage and even infertility. 


However, some people mistakenly believe that mycoplasma infections will block the fallopian tube, which is not true. Let's take a look! 

1. How does mycoplasma infection cause blocked fallopian tubes

Mycoplasma, defined between bacteria and viruses, is a conditionally pathogenic bacterium that can cause human genitourinary infections. An infected woman with mycoplasma can lead to cervicitis, vaginitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometritis, salpingitis, etc. If not treated in time, these gynecological infections will recur and lead to blockage of the fallopian tubes. For this reason, many believe mycoplasma infections will definitely lead to fallopian tube blockage.

2. Does mycoplasma necessarily block the fallopian tubes? 

Mycoplasma infections may cause infection and blockage of the fallopian tubes, but not all infections lead to the blockage of fallopian tubes. Many people confuse these two kinds of situations, which is a misconception. 

After being infected with mycoplasma, some women do not have any obvious discomfort symptoms. Because their immune systems are relatively strong, mycoplasma cannot reproduce in large quantities, weakening its disease-causing ability. In this case, it does not lead to gynecological inflammation and thus does not cause inflammation and blockage of the fallopian tubes. 

However, some women infected with mycoplasma have apparent symptoms such as increased leukorrhea, vaginal itching, abdominal pain, etc. If left untreated, the infection will spread to the fallopian tube tissues, causing chronic inflammation and leading to tubal adhesion, blockage, and fluid retention. 

In addition, although the fallopian tubes are not blocked, some women infected with mycoplasma may also have difficulty conceiving. For example, mycoplasma infection of the cervix will damage the cervical mucosa and cervical tube adhesions, affecting sperm penetration of the cervical tube into the uterine cavity, which will affect women's conception; mycoplasma infection of the endometrium will lead to adhesions or damage; the endometrium's tolerance is poor, resulting in failure of fertilization of the egg, which will also affect women's conception.

Therefore, you can't simply assume that mycoplasma infections will lead to tubal blockage and infertility. 

3. What should I do if a mycoplasma infection causes tubal blockage?

For patients diagnosed with mycoplasma infection that leads to infection and blockage of the fallopian tubes, the main treatment methods include: 

Drug treatment: Antibiotics can be used to control mycoplasma infection. But since mycoplasma has no cell wall structure, it is naturally resistant to antibiotics that act on the cell wall. So drug sensitivity tests should be conducted to select antibiotics sensitive to bacteria. Or rather, patients can use the traditional Chinese medicine Fuyan Pill for treatment because it produces no drug resistance.

Surgery: For patients with fallopian tube inflammation or blockage, if drug treatment is ineffective, they may choose an unblocking surgery to unblock the blocked fallopian tube, such as tubal adhesion laxation, tubal umbilical stoma, or hysteroscopic tubal cannulation. To prevent further infections and recurrence, patients should take Fuyan Pill after surgery to remove inflammation and repair the tubes to restore their patency. 

This is the introduction about whether mycoplasma will block the fallopian tube. It will help you. If women have a mycoplasma infection or blocked fallopian tubes, it is essential to seek medical attention promptly!
