Blocked Fallopian Tubes
When a fallopian tube is blocked, the passage for sperm to penetrate the egg, as well as the fertilized egg’s return to the uterus, is blocked. Blocked fallopian tubes may also be caused by scar tissue, tumors, or pelvic adhesions.
- PID is a syndrome in which inflammation of the internal lining of the Fallopian tube causes scarring or blockage, with hydrosalpinx as a side effect.
- Endometriosis is a condition of the ovaries and Fallopian tubes in women. Endometrial tissue may build up in the fallopian tubes, clogging them. The fallopian tubes can also be obstructed by adhesions between endometrial tissue on the outside of other organs.
- Infections that are spread by sexual contact (STIs). Chlamydia and gonorrhea may cause scarring and pelvic inflammatory disease.
- In the past, I had an ectopic pregnancy. As a result, the fallopian tubes can become scarred.
- Fibroids that grow in the uterus. These growths have the potential to block the fallopian tube, particularly if they are located near the point where the tubes connect to the uterus.
- Surgical procedures for the abdomen of the past. Past fallopian tube surgery, especially on the tubes themselves, may result in pelvic adhesions that block the tubes.
- Many causes of fallopian tube blockage are inevitable. Conversely, using a condom during sex reduces the chance of STIs.
If the fallopian tubes are blocked by little amounts of scar tissue or adhesions, the doctor will do laparoscopic surgery to remove the blockage and remove the tubes.
