Blocked fallopian tubes is a prevalent cause of a women’s infertility. Blockage of the fallopian tubes makes pregnancy impossible. Blockage makes conception is unlikely because the woman’s egg is prevented from traveling through her fallopian tubes in order to meet the man’s sperm. Likewise, the man’s sperm is prevented from reaching the woman’s egg due to the blockage.
Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Should the egg and sperm manage to meet, the fertilized egg may not be able to travel back through the fallopian tube and into the uterus for implantation. In this case, the fertilized egg may implant in the woman’s fallopian tube, resulting in an ectopic pregnancy (tubal pregnancy) that can cause permanent damage.
Fallopian tubes will become blocked due to:
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Corrective Reproductive Surgery for Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Laparoscopy is a corrective reproductive surgical procedure allowing your fertility doctor to view the fallopian tubes for abnormalities interfering with conception. A laparoscope is a thin fiber optic telescope inserted through a small incision in the belly button. If abnormalities are discovered, surgical instruments are inserted through additional tiny incisions at the pubic hair line to remove the blockage. A laparoscopy is performed using general anesthesia.
A hysteroscopy is another surgical procedure used to catheterize your fallopian tubes either to confirm that they are open or to attempt to open them if there is a blockage near the point where the tubes meets the uterus. This procedure is similar to the technique used by cardiologists to open blocked blood vessels in the heart.
