Creating Flow and Healing
Learning that you have damaged or blocked fallopian tubes can feel like you’ve encountered a huge setback along your fertility journey. While this diagnosis does require you to approach your fertility health differently, it does not mean you can’t have a healthy and successful pregnancy. Our goal is to promote healing in the reproductive system and throughout the entire body so you can move forward on your path to conception.
Our Holistic Approach to Treating Damaged Fallopian Tubes
Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes may produce no symptoms and are usually only detected when attempts to conceive are unsuccessful. Whether damage to the fallopian tubes was caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, surgery, or endometriosis, our treatments can be an effective tool for increased fertility. We develop our therapies by treating the body as a whole and tailoring them to the individual so healing can happen on a deeper level. This approach has a positive impact on physical health, but also mental and emotional as well.
Heal Damaged Fallopian Tubes Naturally
Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes require surgery to either remove the damaged area, create a wider opening, or remove the damaged tube. Your doctor will recommend which surgical option is best suited to your situation.
Natural treatments for blocked fallopian tubes can be integrated into your overall treatment plan to help support recovery after surgery by improving recovery time and reducing the side effects. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are effective ways to help improve the function of fallopian tubes while also bringing balance to your qi and fluids.
Acupuncture for Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Acupuncture can benefit those seeking ways to improve the health of their fallopian tubes in a number of ways. Treatments improve fertility by relaxing the spasms in the fallopian tubes and promoting movement through the tubes. Acupuncture doesn’t only benefit the fallopian tubes but works to balance the qi, hormones, and blood flow through the whole body. This results in more regular menses, less painful menstruation, and less pain during intercourse. Those receiving this therapy also say they feel more relaxed and less anxious.
During treatment, patients can expect to have acupuncture needles placed on their legs, arms, abdomen, and sometimes elsewhere, such as the ears. Results can vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients may begin to experience results within 6-12 months of receiving weekly treatment. We will likely recommend combining acupuncture with Chinese herbs to maximize effectiveness.
Chinese Herbal Medicine for Blocked Fallopian Tubes
Chinese herbs and herb formulas have been used for thousands of years to promote wellness and treat a number of conditions, including those related to fertility. Herbal remedies for blocked fallopian tubes will look a bit different for each person depending on individual circumstance and health, but each works to improve fertility outcomes by regulating menses, harmonizing hormones, and bringing balance to yin, yang, qi, blood, and fluids.
Results can vary based on a number of factors, however, most patients may begin to experience sustained results in 6-12 months. After discussing your health history, we may recommend combining this therapy with acupuncture. We see better outcomes with improved results when these treatments are paired together for fertility treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Can Damage Fallopian Tubes?
The most common cause of damaged fallopian tubes is a pelvic inflammatory disease. This infection is due to sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia or gonorrhea. Previous surgeries to the abdomen or pelvis can also cause damage to the fallopian tubes, including surgeries for previous ectopic pregnancies.
How Do You Know If Your Fallopian Tube Is Damaged?
A lot of women do not experience any noticeable symptoms of fallopian tube damage until they have difficulty conceiving after months of pregnancy attempts. If you are worried about your fertility, especially if you have previously had an STI, ectopic pregnancy, or pelvic surgery, talk to your doctor. A special test is required to properly diagnose fallopian tube damage.
Can Damaged Fallopian Tubes Be Repaired?
Yes, in some cases damaged fallopian tubes can be repaired through surgery. The appropriate surgery will depend on the state of the tube(s) and where the damage is located. A partial salpingectomy is performed to remove the damaged part of the tube(s). A doctor could perform a salpingostomy to create a new opening of the fallopian tube if the blockage is located at the end of the tube(s). A fimbrioplasty procedure repairs or reconstructs the damaged parts of the tube(s). Talk with your doctor to see if surgery is right for you.
Can Damaged Fallopian Tubes Repair Themselves?
There are several natural ways to improve the health of your tubes by reducing inflammation. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are two effective ways to relax spasms in the tubes, promote movement within the tubes, regulate menses, and restore balance to qi and blood flow. Other natural ways to treat blockages might include taking certain vitamins and/or supplements such as vitamin C, ginger, turmeric, garlic, and ginseng. Practicing yoga, getting exercise, and reducing alcohol intake are also ways to improve your overall health and improve fertility.
Can You Get Pregnant with Damaged Fallopian Tubes?
Yes, it is possible to have a successful pregnancy with damaged or blocked tubes. Your chances of conceiving are higher if you have one healthy tube as opposed to both being damaged. Surgery can repair the damage, remove scar tissue and blockages, or create a better fallopian tube opening, all of which can improve fertility. Another option is to undergo IVF treatments, which place a fertilized egg into the uterus directly, therefore bypassing the fallopian tubes.
Can You Get Pregnant Naturally with Blocked Fallopian Tubes?
Yes, it is still possible to get pregnant naturally with blocked fallopian tubes. Your chances of conceiving are higher if you have one healthy tube as opposed to both being damaged. You can also consult your doctor to see if surgery to repair your fallopian tube(s) is an option.
Can You Get Pregnant Naturally Without Fallopian Tubes?
Fallopian tubes are needed to carry the egg from the ovary to the uterus. Without fallopian tubes, natural pregnancy is not possible.
Can You Clear Blocked Fallopian Tubes Naturally?
You can naturally reduce inflammation in the fallopian tubes in several ways. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are two effective ways to relax spasms in the tubes, promote movement within the tubes, reduce inflammation, regulate menses, and restore balance to qi and blood flow.
How to Remove Scar Tissue from Fallopian Tubes Naturally
Scar tissue on the fallopian tubes must be removed surgically and cannot be removed naturally. However, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are effective ways to support your healing process after surgery. Patients integrating these natural treatments see improved recovery time after surgery and a reduction in negative side effects.
Can Acupuncture Help Blocked Fallopian Tubes?
