How Blocked Fallopian Tubes Cause Infertility



By Dr Ariana Martins

Imagine an extremely healthy woman with no history of adverse health conditions. No irregularities in the menstrual cycle and no feeling of pain or discomfort as well. Now imagine the disbelief such a woman would feel when they learn they are unable to conceive a child due to infertility.

Unfortunately for many perfectly healthy women, this is a reality they do not need to imagine anymore. It is something they are facing at the moment and it is a huge shock to all such women.
While there could be an umpteen number of reasons why healthy women are suffering from infertility, one of the major causes is actually blocked fallopian tubes.

Fallopian tubes are basically thin ducts found on either side of a woman's uterus. These tubes perform a very important function that of carrying eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. Not just that, but they are also responsible for sperms to swim through and meet with the eggs. Both these functions are directly related to pregnancy and any disruption is obvious to cause infertility. Unfortunately blocked fallopian tubes end up creating obstruction for both the woman's eggs and male sperms to go to either side where they need to go for getting pregnant. Without addressing the blockage, it becomes almost impossible for a woman to conceive a child and this is exactly why many healthy women find themselves in a precarious position where they are unable to conceive.

There are quite a few reasons why fallopian tubes can get blocked in the uterus. Some of the main causes are infections, side-effects of birth control medication, scars left from an old surgical wound or even abortions or problems in past pregnancies.

There are also different types of blockages in the fallopian tubes. The most common is a condition known as Hydrosalpinx where the fallopian tubes get filled with fluids that were caused because of an infection in the body. Sexually transmitted diseases can also damage fallopian tubes affecting conception.

Although blocked fallopian tubes are a genuine cause of concern as severe damage can drastically minimize the chances of having a baby, they are also not the end of the world. Some women with severe damage may have to opt for In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) while others can opt for natural treatments that directly affect the health of your reproductive system. It is recommended to first get an x-ray or ultrasound reports to find out the extent of the damage in the fallopian tubes. If the blockage is not beyond repairable measures, then you can certainly opt for a targeted natural remedy that slowly repairs the affected areas and allow movement of the eggs between the ovaries and the uterus.

Ideally surgical treatments should be kept as a last resort considering the risks involved in such treatments. Also if scars in the tissues remain due to surgery, then there is a fair chance your blocked fallopian tubes will reoccur creating further complications in trying to conceive a child. Simply opt for natural therapies that can treat your fallopian tubes and get rid of all underlying causes of the blockage.
