For how long should serrapeptase be taken to prevent scar tissue in fallopian tubes?

For how long should serrapeptase be taken to prevent scar tissue in fallopian tubes?

No one knows: While serrapeptase has been touted to digest scars and inflammation, there have been no reliable clinical studies to prove the claims. It is hard to scientifically understand how a peptide, when taken orally, can exert its effects as things are broken down by the digestive process and would not expect to get into the systemic system unchanged. Sorry, save your money! ...Read more

I have a blocked fallopian tube. I heard that serrapeptase is great for removing scar tissue. Will this interfere with other meds I am taking.

I have a blocked fallopian tube. I heard that serrapeptase is great for removing scar tissue. Will this interfere with other meds I am taking.

Not proven: Serrapeptase is categorized as a dietary supplement. There is not proven science supporting the idea that it would open a blocked fallopian tube. Before you spend money and time I would consult an Obgyn and clarify the status of both fallopian tubes. Then if you are trying to conceive an effective plan of care can be established to help you achieve your goal. ...Read more

Should serrapeptase (using to treat scar tissue in fallopian tubes) be used along with vitex (to treat pcos)?

Should serrapeptase (using to treat scar tissue in fallopian tubes) be used along with vitex (to treat pcos)?

Neither are useful: There is no scientific evidence that serratiopeptidase (serrapeptidase) affects any cause of infertility, including scarring in or around the fallopian tubes. There is evidence that vitex agnus-castus may help with pms symptoms and cyclic mastalgia (breast pain) but no studies showing that it helps women with pcos or infertility. If you have pcos and damaged tubes you need to see a rei specialist. ...Read more

How can you address scarred fallopian tubes?

How can you address scarred fallopian tubes?

Best to bypass them: While scarred tubes can sometimes be partially repaired, the results are generally poor and you can only rearrange the scarring, not eliminate it.

Where do the Fallopian tubes usually get blocked or scarred is it in the inside of the tube ?

Blocked tubes ?: Fallopian tubes become blocked secondary to inflammation, usually caused by infection or endometriosis. The scarring occurs inside the tubes from the origin in the uterus to the end of the tubes. Often, infection does not produce many symptoms, so making sure one's partner(s) is not infectious is very important to preserve fertility. ...Read more

Will scars on the fallopian tubes show up on a transvaginal ultrasound?

Will scars on the fallopian tubes show up on a transvaginal ultrasound?

Not typically: A plain transvaginal sono will not usually show a chronic scar of the fallopian tubes. Injecting sterile saline into the uterine lumen can allow for visualization of the tubes and if fluid is then seen in the abdomen then patency of at least one tube may be inferred. This is called a sono hysterogram. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I had my tubes clamped 12yrs ago an just had a bunch of scar tissue removed what's my chances on aving another baby because i want one ?

Depends: You won't have kids unless you do something. Reversals are rarely perfect & could set you up for a tubal pregnancy. You could have a fertility center harvest some of your eggs, fertilize them with dad's sperm & implant your prepared uterus. This would bypass the blockage. All choices have their expense & work attached but if you do nothing, no kids! ...Read more
