Fallopian Tube Block

Fallopian Tube Block

Fallopian tube obstruction is a major cause of female infertility. Approximately 20% of female infertility can be attributed to tubal causes Blocked fallopian tubes are unable to let the ovum and the sperm converge, thus making fertilization impossible

Types of tube Block

Distal tubal occlusion (affecting the end towards the ovary) is typically associated with hydrosalpinx formation and often caused by Chlamydia trachomatis. Pelvic adhesions may be associated with such an infection. In less severe forms, the fimbriae may be agglutinated and damaged, but some patency may still be preserved. Midsegment tubal obstruction can be due to tubal ligation procedures as that part of the tube is a common target of sterilization interventions. Proximal tubal occlusion can occur after infection such as a septic abortion.


Most commonly a tube may be obstructed due to infection such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). The Fallopian tubes may also be occluded or disabled by endometritis, infections after childbirth and intraabdominal infections including appendicitis and peritonitis. The formation of adhesions may not necessarily block a fallopian tube, but render it dysfunctional by distorting or separating it from the ovary.


A full testing of tubal functions in patients with infertility is not possible; testing of tubal patency is feasible. A hysterosalpingogram will demonstrate that tubes are open when the radio opaque dye spills into the abdominal cavity. Sonography can demonstrate tubal abnormalities such as a hydrosalpinx, indicative of tubal occlusion.

Homeopathic management

There are medicines in homoeopathy to control the infection in the fallopian tube and will dissolve the blockage .Try the medicines for at least 6 months
