How Is Hydrosalpinx Formed?

Inflammation is one of the most dangerous factors in female infertility. Many inflammations may cause secondary infection and more complications. Hydrosalpinx is a gynecological disease mainly caused by inflammation. Untimely treatment or improper methods can also cause infertility. 

 
When a patient hears the term "hydrosalpinx" from a doctor, she may not even knows it, but she will have some speculative understandings from the literal meaning. But there are also some doubts, such as, where is the fallopian tube? How can water accumulate? What is "hydrosalpinx"?
 
 
Fallopian tube occupies an important position in female reproduction. It is a bridge to establish pregnancy. It has the functions of producing ovum, transporting sperm, transporting fertilized ovum and so on. It plays an important role in the survival and development of early embryos and is the basis of successful pregnancy. 
 
Hydrosalpinx refers to the accumulation of cell secretion or pus due to the closure and adhesion of the fallopian tube or the isthmus and umbrella end of the fallopian tube, which is finally presented in the form of liquid, which is called "hydrosalpinx" by doctors. Hydrosalpinx is harmful and may induce ectopic pregnancy, endometrial damage and even infertility.
 
How is hydrosalpinx caused? 
 
 
Firstly, tubal wall mucosa adhesion. It is mainly caused by chronic tubal inflammation. Hydrosalpinx is one of the consequences of chronic tubal inflammation. The wall of fallopian tube is composed of mucosa, muscle and serosa from inside to outside. Inflammation of the fallopian tube is caused by pathogen infection. Under the interference of inflammatory cells, the mucosal epithelium of the wall of the fallopian tube falls off and forms adhesion atresia. The secretion of mucosal cells will accumulate in the lumen of the fallopian tube, resulting in hydrosalpinx. 
 
Secondly, adhesion of isthmus and umbrella. After the obstruction of the umbrella end of the fallopian tube, the pyogenic cells in the lumen are absorbed, and eventually become water-like liquid. Some of the liquid is absorbed, leaving an empty shell. The hydrosalping shows hydrocele shadow. 
 
Thirdly, other external factors lead to hydrocele. Such as long-term tubal ligation, post-operative secondary effusion, induced abortion, drug abortion, induced labor, unclean sexual intercourse and other causes of hydrosalpinx.
 
 
Hydrosalpinx is mostly due to complications caused by inflammation without timely treatment. Therefore, hydrosalpinx usually coexists with inflammation. In the treatment of hydrosalpinx, the development of inflammation should be taken into account, and anti-inflammatory treatment should be carried out in time to avoid further injury.
 
Herbal medicine is particularly important in this case. Among them, Fuyan Pill is the an effective medicine to treat hydrosalpinx. The herbal ingredients in Fuyan Pill have the functions of anti-inflammation, sterilization, clearing heat and activating blood circulation, etc.
