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?
