if you have blocked fallopian tubes can you still get a period? and if so would they still be regular?

Yes: Blocked tubes will keep you from getting pregnant but periods are from the shedding of the lining of the uterus. If you ovaries and hormones are functioning normally you will have regular periods.

Yes: Your period comes from sloughing off of your uterine lining, separate (but connected) organ than your fallopian tubes. The fallopian tubes solely carry an egg from the ovary to the uterus and the tube isn't involved in menstruation at all. If your tubes are blocked, this does not affect menstruation at all. Plenty of women get their tubes tied every day and they don't have changes in period.

Menses: Not at all. Your menstrual bleeding comes from your uterus and that has no relationship with the fallopian tube.
