Blocked fallopian tubes are usually caused by inflammatory infections, injuries, pelvic adhesions, and other factors that lead to partial or complete blockage of the fallopian tubes, which is one of the major causes of infertility in women. To unblock the fallopian tubes, most doctors will prescribe western antibiotics for anti-infection treatment, and surgery will be performed in severe cases. However, in recent years, the use of herbs to unblock the fallopian tubes has been gaining more and more acceptance among patients.
Specifically, which herbs can be used to unblock the fallopian tubes?
TCM believes that the pathological changes of tubal blockage are mostly related to liver depression, blood stasis, and heat toxicity. Therefore, female patients should focus on relieving liver depression and clearing heat and stasis to treat fallopian tube blockage with herbs.
For fallopian tube blockage caused by Liver-Qi stagnation, the patient is usually infertile for many years with variable menstrual flow, premenstrual breast pain, chest discomfort, abdominal distension and pain, depression, or irritability. The tongue is red, the fur is white, and the pulse is stringent.
The main treatment principle is to de-stress the liver, regulate blood and regulate menstruation. The following herbs can be used: Angelicae, Red peony, Achyranthes, Ricepaperplant pith, Neem, Psidium Guajava, Psidium Saponariae, Citrus Aurantium, Green Peel, Licorice, Semen vaccariae. Take one dose daily by decoction, and divide it into two warm doses.
For blockage of the fallopian tubes caused by internal stasis of blood, the main symptoms of patients are usually infertility after marriage, irregular flow of menstruation, or more frequent leakage, low or high volume of late menstruation, purple-black color, blood clots, pain in the lower abdomen, and severe pain before menstruation. The tongue is purple and dull, or there are stasis spots on the edge of the tongue, and the pulse is stringent and astringent.
The general principle of treatment is to activate blood circulation and remove blood stasis, warm the meridians and open the channels. Natural herbs can be used: Myrrh, Angelica, Rhizoma ligustici wallichii, Fennel, dried ginger, Rhizoma corydalis, Cinnamon, Red peony, Trogopterori dung. Take one dose daily by decoction, and divide it into two warm doses.
The above two dialectical treatment methods help reduce the pain caused by fallopian tube blockage. Still, in clinical operations, doctors usually choose herbs that can reduce inflammation and swelling and promote the discharge of inflammatory substances from the fallopian tubes.
The herbs used to unblock the fallopian tubes mainly include those that activate blood circulation, remove blood stasis, and move through the collaterals. The herbs to invigorate blood circulation and remove blood stasis include Safflower, Peach kernel, Red peony, Angelica tail, motherwort, etc., while the herbs to move the collaterals include Red vine, Caulis spatholobi, Caryophylla vine, Heather leaf, etc.
Along with the treatment, it is often necessary to combine some Qi-regulating herbs, such as Aromatic herbs, Green peel, Rose hips, etc. If the fallopian tube blockage is severe, some worm medicines such as Leech and Centipede can be added to strengthen the effects of resolving blood stasis and clearing the collaterals. If there is hydrocele in the fallopian tube, patients can add some herbs to dispel phlegm and dampness, such as Pinellia, Atractylodes, Saponalis, etc., which need to be added or subtracted according to the patient's symptoms.
As a complete formula, the herbal medicine Fuyan Pill contains herbs Radix bupleuri, Poria, Radix Scutellariae, Gardenia, Atractylodes, Yam, Angelica, Peach kernel, Safflower, Licorice, Aucklandia lappa Decne, Rhizoma corydalis, Honeysuckle, and Trogopterori dung, etc. It has sound effects of clearing heat, detoxifying the body, activating blood circulation, and removing blood stasis, which can eliminate inflammation and lesions of fallopian tubes, treat gynecological inflammation and infertility, etc.
The treatment of incompetent fallopian tube blockage mainly relies on herbal medicine, which effectively unblocks the fallopian tubes. However, it should be noted that if the condition is severe, the effect of herbal treatment is slow. The decision needs to be made according to the degree of the blockage. Patients are advised to consult their doctors and treat under their guidance to avoid delaying the condition.
