Why Can't Pregnancy Be Achieved Despite Repeated Tubal Flushing for Blocked Fallopian Tubes?

Blocked fallopian tubes are one of the common causes of infertility in women. Once the fallopian tubes are obstructed, it can lead to increased difficulty in becoming pregnant. Many women facing blocked fallopian tubes choose to undergo a tubal flushing surgery to try to improve the situation. However, some women still find it difficult to conceive even after undergoing multiple tubal flushing surgeries. 


Why is it still hard to conceive after repeated tubal flushing for blocked fallopian tubes?

1. What is the issue with blocked fallopian tubes?

Blocked fallopian tubes can be caused by various reasons, such as:

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Infections in the pelvic area, often caused by sexually transmitted infections (like gonorrhea or chlamydia), are one of the most common causes.

Endometriosis: The displacement of uterine lining can lead to the formation of scars and adhesions around the fallopian tubes.

Surgical Procedures: Scarring from abdominal or pelvic surgery (including cesarean sections) can lead to blockages in the fallopian tubes.

Congenital Abnormalities: Some women may be born with abnormalities in their fallopian tubes.

These factors can lead to blockage or narrowing of the fallopian tubes, thus hindering the combination of egg and sperm or preventing the fertilized egg from smoothly moving to the uterus.

2. Benefits of Tubal Flushing Surgery

Tubal flushing surgery (also known as tubal cannulation or hysterosalpingography) is a common diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. The main purpose of the surgery is to diagnose whether the fallopian tubes are open and to attempt to unblock the obstructed tubes by injecting a special fluid. This method can sometimes temporarily or permanently restore the patency of the fallopian tubes, thereby increasing the chances of pregnancy.

Despite the benefits of tubal flushing surgery, repeated procedures can also have some adverse effects:

Risk of Inflammation: Each surgery can potentially cause inflammation or infection, especially in cases where there is an underlying infection.

Scar Tissue Formation: Repeated surgeries may lead to the formation of more scar tissue, further blocking the fallopian tubes.

Limited Effectiveness: For severely or completely blocked fallopian tubes, tubal flushing surgery may not provide a long-term solution.

3. Why Repeated Tubal Flushing Still Fails to Result in Pregnancy

Some women, despite undergoing multiple tubal flushing surgeries, still find it difficult to conceive. This may be due to:

Tubal Damage: Long-term or severe blockage may cause damage to the fallopian tubes, which might be irreparable through tubal flushing.

Underlying Fertility Issues: Apart from tubal problems, there may be other factors affecting fertility, such as ovarian dysfunction, or fertility issues with the partner.

Functional Problems of the Fallopian Tubes: Even if the fallopian tubes are unblocked, they might still have functional issues, such as impaired movement of the cilia, affecting the transport of the fertilized egg.

4. What to Do if Pregnancy Does Not Occur Despite Repeated Tubal Flushing for Blocked Tubes?

In cases where the fallopian tubes are blocked and repeated tubal flushing surgeries have not led to pregnancy, considering traditional Chinese medicine, such as Fuyan Pill, can be an option. It is primarily used to treat gynecological inflammations, such as pelvic inflammatory disease and adnexitis, which are common causes of blocked fallopian tubes. 

Taking Fuyan Pill can promote blood circulation, reconcile qi and blood, improve the blockage of the fallopian tubes, promote local blood circulation in the tubes, and restore their smooth and unobstructed state. Moreover, Fuyan Pill can also improve the environment of the female reproductive system and regulate the body, laying a good foundation for pregnancy preparation.

It is important to remember that since each person's degree and location of blockage, as well as their physical condition, vary, the time it takes for fallopian tube function to recover differs. Therefore, the time it takes for patients to try and achieve pregnancy will vary. Patience is essential, and a relaxed mindset is crucial. Good things will come naturally.
