Fallopian Tube (Definition)

what is the meaning of bilateral patent fallopian tubes?

what is the meaning of bilateral patent fallopian tubes?

Normal finding.: "Bilateral" = both sides (right & left). "Patent" = open. The "fallopian tubes" are the tubes leading from the uterus to the ovary, i.e. the tube where eggs travel down in order to implant in the womb. Having fallopian tubes open on both sides is a normal finding; unlike a blockage on one side (where the chances of conception go down by at least 50%), both sides being open is considered "normal".

Bilateral patent fallopian tubes... I understand it means the both tubes are open, does it mean I am medically okay to get pregnant?

Bilateral patent fallopian tubes... I understand it means the both tubes are open, does it mean I am medically okay to get pregnant?

It only means: That the tubes are open, and so the ovulated egg can potentially get into the uterine cavity for normal implantation following fertilization. If there are any other medical conditions that might inhibit or contraindicate pregnancy, those are separate issues.

Bth fallopian tube shw mild dilatation of d distal 3rd due 2 fimbrail adhesions with forced peritoneal spillage in keeping with bilateral patent tubes?

Infection: Mild dilation and fimbrail adhesions and forced peritoneal spillage all are evidence of tubal infection. This will put you at high risk for ectopic pregnancy. When you get pregnant you need to be watched closely.

Are there any remedies out there to help open or clear blocked fallopian tubes?

Are there any remedies out there to help open or clear blocked fallopian tubes?

Difficult: It's generally difficult to clear out blocked fallopian tubes because the blockage often comes from previous infection like chlamydia or from abdominal surgery. There are some infertility doctors that can use a small camera in the uterus called a hysteroscope and open the tubes that way, but it's still difficult. I recommend that you talk to an infertility expert.

What does it mean "the left fallopian tube is patent. However it demonstrates contained spillage of contrast"?

What does it mean "the left fallopian tube is patent. However it demonstrates contained spillage of contrast"?

Tube open,: & some of the liquid (which absorbs X-rays; i.e. contrast) which exited the egg entry end of the tube remained within a limited "contained" space of the abdominal cavity instead of more diffusely spreading into a larger space. Containment implies some scar tissue around the fallopian tube preventing contrast diffusion, not optimal. Look up for hysterosalpingogram using Google & Google images.

I always seem to feel ovulation on my left side. But I have only my right fallopian tube and its open. Why don't I ever feel twinges on my right side?

I always seem to feel ovulation on my left side. But I have only my right fallopian tube and its open. Why don't I ever feel twinges on my right side?

Ovaries: Ovaries are the organ that ovulate, and not fallopian tubes. Absence of feeling it does not mean you don't ovulate on the right side. Also, even if you only have 1 tube, the egg from the other side can still be picked up by that tube.

How does Ayurvedic medicine phalasarpis work to open blocked fallopian tubes?

How does Ayurvedic medicine phalasarpis work to open blocked fallopian tubes?

Unknown mechanism: Ayervedic medicine is a system of treating disease based on folk experience and trust in the practitioner rather than the more modern approaches. I respect it but I doubt you'll find a mechanism for this butter-based herbal mix. You'll need to decide whether it's worked, or is a placebo. But in any case, I hope you get what you want -- good luck.

Pls I need more understanding of my HSG result; 1. Patent right fallopian tube 2. Chronic salpingitis with perifimbrial blockage (left)?

Fertility testing: This is difficult to answer without seeing the radiology image but it sounds like your right fallopian tube is normal but that your left tube may be blocked. I would recommend following up with a gyn/rei to further discuss the results and the plan.

My doctors report on my HSG test read as follows: findings suggesting patent fallopian tube and possible scarring in the pelvis. What does this means.

My doctors report on my HSG test read as follows: findings suggesting patent fallopian tube and possible scarring in the pelvis. What does this means.

HSG report: This means that the fallopian tubes are open allowing for egg and sperm to reach each other. But that the shape is a little distorted meaning there could be some scar tissue around the tubes. Scar tissue can be formed by previous surgeries, appendix issues, pelvic infections and endometriosis.

Surgey 7 months ago says fallopian tubes open. With fertility drugs still having trouble getting preg. Should I repeat HSG if previous was normal?

Good idea: You can talk this over with your fertility doc who may have other suggestions; I recommend to my patients if no pregnancy in 6 months after tubal surgery it's a good time to recheck with hsg.

Normal report: Appears that both fallopian tubes are open. That is a normal report. The dr. That ordered the test will discuss all your findings with you.
