Why Do Women Who Have Never Been Pregnant Have Blocked Fallopian Tubes?

 

 

Blocked fallopian tubes are a common gynecologic disease. Patients often have abdominal pain, irregular menstruation, dysmenorrhea and other symptoms. It can even cause female infertility. Many women who have never been pregnant have blocked fallopian tubes, but they don't know why it happens.

 
For women who have never been pregnant, are their fallopian tubes surely unblocked?
 
There are three main causes of blocked fallopian tubes, which are pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis and tubal tuberculosis. Other causes include vaginitis, cervicitis, endometritis, appendicitis, having sex during their periods, dirty sexual intercourse, celiac operation and so on. It means that women who are not pregnant can become infected, and clinically, treating them is often more difficult. For women being not pregnant for more than a year, fallopian tube problems cannot be ignored. They should undergo an exam and find out the cause as soon as possible.
 
For women who were pregnant, are their fallopian tubes still unblocked?
 
It's not necessarily true. In fact, the tubal cavity is relatively thin, and it's easy to cause blockage in the tubes after women have inflammation. Whether they have children or not, blocked fallopian tubes may occur. For women who want a second child but cannot get pregnant, 80% of them suffer from blocked fallopian tubes. It's related to the uterine operation, such as abortion.
 
Many patients have had an abortion before. Whether the surgical equipment is disinfected during the operation, whether patients adhere to the doctor's advice after the operation, and personal hygiene are related to the pelvic infection, which may cause female infertility. 
 
For women who can't get pregnant, HSG is recommended to find out whether the fallopian tubes are blocked, and confirm the location and the degree of obstruction.
 
The things you should notice when having an HSG are as follows.
 
1. The examination should be carried out within 3 to 7 days after your menstruation is clean, and sexual intercourse and bath should be avoided within the examination period.
 
2. Make sure there is no active inflammation in the genital tract. If you have serious systemic diseases and cannot tolerate the examination, you should tell your doctor.
 
3. Body temperature should be lower than 37.5 degrees Celsius on the examination day.
 
4. If you have a history of malignant uterine tumors or pelvic tuberculosis, you need to explain it to your doctor.
 
5. If you have a history of iodine allergy, the examination is not recommended.
 
6. Extrauterine pregnancy should be excluded before the examination.
 
Experts say that if your fallopian tubes are not seriously blocked, you can choose hydrotubation. It is suggested that you should take anti-inflammatory drugs at the same time. The herbal medicine Fuyan Pill can also diminish inflammation and reduce swelling, and be taken with western medicine. It can effectively treat gynecological inflammations that lead to blocked fallopian tubes.
 
If your fallopian tubes are seriously blocked, laparoscopic surgery can be performed to separate the adhesion and open the fallopian tubes. Besides, if you want to get pregnant, IVF is a practicable option.
