Irregular Menstruation? You May Have Blocked Fallopian Tubes!

The blocked fallopian tube is a prevalent gynecological disease, and it is also an essential secondary factor of infertility. About one-third of infertility may be caused by blockage of the fallopian tubes. When the blockage of the fallopian tubes is severe, it can cause infertility. Therefore, women usually need to understand the symptoms of infertility caused by blocked fallopian tubes. Then, what are the performances of infertility caused by blocked fallopian tubes?

 

 

The manifestations of infertility caused by blocked fallopian tubes include:

 

1. Irregular menstruation

 

The fallopian tube is adjacent to the ovary. Generally, the disease of the fallopian tube does not affect the ovary function and does not affect the menstrual flow. When the inflammation spreads to the ovary and damages the ovarian function, abnormal menstruation will occur, such as frequent menstruation and excessive menstrual flow. The most common may be the result of pelvic congestion and ovarian dysfunction. Chronic inflammation, uterine fibrosis, incomplete uterine involution, abnormal uterine position caused by adhesions, etc., can cause menorrhagia.

 

2. Abdominal discomfort

 

Patients have different degrees of pain in the lower abdomen, primarily hidden discomfort, soreness, swelling, and falling sensation in the lower back and sacrum, often exacerbated by fatigue. Due to pelvic adhesions, there may be bladder and rectal filling pain or pain during emptying and other bladder and rectal irritation symptoms, such as frequent urination and tenesmus.

 

3. Infertility

 

Infertility is one of the symptoms of blocked fallopian tubes. The fallopian tube itself is damaged by the disease, which forms a blockage and causes infertility, and secondary infertility is more common.

 

4. Dysmenorrhea

 

Congestive dysmenorrhea is caused by pelvic congestion. Most of them have abdominal pain starting one week before menstruation, and the heavier it gets closer to the menstrual period, until menstrual cramps.

 

5. Other symptoms

 

Other symptoms of blocked fallopian tubes include increased leucorrhea, pain during sexual intercourse, gastrointestinal disorders, fatigue, affected labor or intolerance, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and depression.

 

 

Diagnosis of blocked fallopian tubes

 

The clinical diagnosis of tubal blockage requires the following inspections:

 

Hydrotubation: Insert a tube into the uterine cavity of the examinee and then inject 20 ml of syrup into the tube, usually saline plus antibiotics. The medicine flows from the uterine cavity through the fallopian tubes and finally reaches the pelvic cavity.

 

Ultrasound examination: Ultrasound examination of the fallopian tube includes routine ultrasound examination and ultrasound passage of fluid.

 

Ordinary examination: Some hydrosalpinx can be detected on ultrasound, and it is manifested as thickened liquid dark areas on both sides of the uterus. Still, ultrasound cannot be diagnosed as a hydrosalpinx or ovarian cyst. 

 

Treatments of blocked fallopian tubes

 

There are many treatments for blocked fallopian tubes, but the following three are more common:

 

1. Physical therapy: 

 

Physical therapy is a standard method to treat blocked fallopian tubes. The early treatment of blocked fallopian tubes uses some superficial physical therapy. Local physical therapy such as shortwave, constant frequency magnetic resonance, and a microwave can only improve local blood circulation. However, the treatment effect for the fallopian tube obstruction in the abdominal cavity is not significant.

 

2. Medication:

 

Fallopian tube blockage is mainly caused by gynecological inflammation, most of which is caused by bacteria ascending. Gynecological inflammation is short-term, but the blockage of the fallopian tube caused by it is permanent. Herbal medicine such as Fuyan Pill can effectively help anti-inflammation. The herbal medicine Fuyan Pill can diminish inflammation and reduce swelling and be taken with chemical medicine together. It can effectively treat gynecological inflammations that lead to blocked fallopian tubes.

 

3. Drug injection: 

 

In female patients, the fluid is directly injected into the fallopian tube cavity under the hysteroscope. The partial adhesion and mild to moderate obstruction of the fallopian tube cavity can be separated and dredged. The drug injection not only plays a role in inspection but also affects treatment, avoiding radiation exposure.
