Why do you have all these symptoms in tubal blockage?

Tubal blockage is usually asymptomatic. It is symptomatic only if it is associated with pelvic inflammatory diseases (PID) or other pathology. Previous ectopic pregnancy, previous pelvic surgery, endometriosis are also causes of tubal blockage.

Complications of tubal blockage:

  • Infertility
  • Chronic pelvic pain

Diagnosis & Treatment

We at Queen’s Gynecology provide best tubal blockage treatment in Delhi as we consider it as a significant disorder. Though it is an incidental finding during the course of infertility investigations. Previous ectopic pregnancy, previous pelvic surgery are also the causes of tubal blockage. Each case needs to be individualized, since it can alter the course of treatment.

Treatment for Tubal Blockage:

  • The mainstay of treatment is surgical, preferably laparoscopic surgery.
  • Laparoscopic evaluation helps us in determining the extent of tubal damage. Procedures such as tubal canulation (re-opening the fallopian tubes), tuboplasty (surgery involving fallopian tube), fimbrioplasty (surgery involving fimbria of fallopian tube), neosalpingostomy ( small nick in damaged portion of fallopian tube).
  • IVF –In cases where fertility can not be restored by medical or surgical intervention, IVF is the mainstay of treatment.
  • Medical management- sometimes in cases where pelvic infections or tuberculosis are the proven cause of tubal blockage, long course of antibiotics or anti-tubercular drugs are the preferred modality.
