Today young girls battle with STDs, infections, unwanted pregnancies, and poor lifestyles the major causes of infertility today. These problems are visible since they have signs and symptoms and they can effectively be treated to close the road to infertility, but there is a master that is silent in causing infertility- (Blocked Fallopian Tubes)
Do you know that mere menstruating each month doesn’t mean that you are fertile? Blocked Fallopian tubes problem is rising in women today and its causes are; infections that lead to inflammation, appendicitis, STDs like Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) that pave a way to scarring in the pelvic region. These same issues cause the tubes to be tightly twisted that alter their shape or damage them seriously. Other causes include endometriosis where the uterine lining grows in other parts and cause obstruction and there are also some chances for a past surgery to cause a blockage in the Fallopian tubes
What are Fallopian Tubes?
Fallopian Tubes are two thin passages, each at every side of the hip and they act as the middlemen between the uterus and the ovaries. These tubes when healthy and normal facilitate the smooth movement of the fertile egg from the ovary to the outer third of the Fallopian tube or to the upper portion of the uterus where the sperm cell meets it and then fertilization occurs.
When there is a blockage, obstruction, or when the tubes are badly twisted, the sperms are prevented from meeting the egg and fertilization may not occur. In other cases when fertilization occurs, it may lead to an ectopic pregnancy a serious case when the pregnancy is outside the uterus.
One will hardly know that the Fallopian tubes are damaged or blocked until they are diagnosed or tackling conception failure.
Since the problem is silent, Blocked Fallopian tubes are mainly detected after an HSG test or a laparoscopic procedure. The fertility history is considered, past surgeries and infections
- You can say that some treatments are simple while others are invasive, but the major aim is to help a woman conceive in a healthy way. Treatment mainly depends on the results of the diagnostic procedure
- Some simple treatments only require hydrotubation, a procedure where a saline solution is flushed into the Fallopian tubes to clear the obstruction.
- In the requirement of a surgery, a laparoscopic surgery (keyhole surgery) or a microsurgery may be conducted to repair the tubes.
