Blocked Fallopian Tubes


The fallopian tubes are a pair of slender and curved muscular ducts and the place where the egg combines with the sperm and channel for transporting the fertilized eggs. Fallopian tubes play an important role in pregnancy, once blocked, it is difficult for the sperm and egg to combine, and the embryo cannot be successfully implanted.


Common Causes



Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)

Uterine fibroid

Ectopic pregnancy

Reversal of tubal ligation

Complications from lower abdominal surgery, such as cesarean section

Congenital tubal dysplasia

Genital tuberculosis (still common in developing countries, especially India)


Every year, more and more women suffer from endometriosis and fibroids. In fact, 13.6 million women in the United States have moderate to severe endometriosis. Pelvic inflammatory disease is usually caused by sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and surgical infection, which causes about 100000 female infertility cases every year.


All of these causes will lead to the adhesion and scar tissue inside the fallopian tube, which will lead to the obstruction of the fallopian tube. The fallopian tube can also be attached to other organs in the body, such as bladder, ovary, uterus, intestines, etc. The injured fallopian tube will distort, and the wall of the fallopian tube may also stick, resulting in complete blocked fallopian tubes.
