Causes Of Salpingitis Isthmica Nodosa
No clear cause: Salpingitis isthmica nodosa can block the fallopian tubes close to the uterus, and may make pregnancy difficult. It is not caused by anything you did or didn't do. We don't know any exact cause, but it most certainly has to do with the way a women's reproductive system develops right from birth.
Is salpingitis isthmica nodosa congenital? Never had chlamydia or gonorrhea, or infection. Did have hpv, could that cause it?
No: It is definitely not believed by experts to be congenital. No one knows with certainty what causes it, but most favor an infectious cause. None of the stis we see in the us causes it, there have been some cases associated with tubal tuberculosis - again, almost never seen in the us.
Dx of salpingitis isthmica nodosa on left tube. Dr had little info, said very rare. Can I still conceive naturally since no other issues? Only ivf?
SIN: Is extremely rare nowadays, esp. In the us. Most non-specialists in this country have never actually seen it, even most career res have not seen many cases. How was this diagnosis made? If it was made on hsg, it is a tentative diagnosis at best. If it was surgery by an experienced physician, more likely. If you do truly have sin, ivf likely is your best solution.
Pain after sex also feeling like I have to go to the toilet. Am currently treating oophoritis and salpingitis which is hard to cure. Is it the cause?
Yes: That pressure that causes that sensation is the result of irritation. From the inflammation of the nerves in the area.
What does it mean if my past salpingitis possible cause for pelvic pain that comes&go? Is pain forever? Done meds 5mos ago.
Pelvic pain left&right comes&go, possible past salpingitis? Finish taking meds 5mos ago after ectopic surgery. Or wat the cause based on my condtion.
Possible: It could be related to the previous salpingitis. Also could be related to endometriosis, ovarian cysts, ovulation, scar tissue from the salpingitis, and even inguinal hernias (may also have a bulge in groin). If it is ongoing, or getting worse, it's worth having a follow up appt. With your GYN doctor. Hope this helps!
Hello how you doing? Can I still have kids after being diagnosed with salpingitis nodosa and left tube gone?
See a specialist: We "never say never" unless both tubes are removed or both are 100% blocked. If your left tube was removed surgically, your chances depend whether the other (right) tube is 'normal' or not - does the right tube have salpingitis isthmica nodosa (sin) or was the left tube? Sin may affect both sides. You should see a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) specialist for an evaluation if ttc.
Inflammatory process: Salpingitis is inflammation of the fallopian tubes, which extend from the uterus to the area of the overy. It is a componant of a condition called pelvic inflammatory disease. Stds are often a cause, but vaginal bacteria has also been implicated. Symptoms include pain, rectal discomfort, vaginal discharge and abnormal bleeding. Treatment requires antibiotic therapy and close gynocologic follow up.See 2 more doctor answers
PID: Salpingitis is an inflammation of the fallopian tubes and uterus, also known as pid or pelvic inflammatory disease. This is most commonly caused by chlamydia and is generally a sexually transmitted disease. This can cause a lot of pain and, if not treated, permanent scaring that can lead to infertility and/or ectopic pregnancy. See you doc right away if this is you!See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Like other infections/inflammatory conditions, an immunocompetent system will heal and become functional. However, unlike other scenarios, the scarring and other post-healing changes can affect the ability of the fallopian tube to efficiently bring the fertilized egg back into the uterine cavity for implantation (e.g. Increased risk for ectopic pregnancy).
Yes and No: All tubo-ovarian abscess (toa) have salpingitis (inflammation/infection of the tube) but not all salpingitis have a toa. If left untreated, most salpingitis will turn into a toa. So yes they are related but not the same.
If I have Salpingitis and or oophoritis. Does that mean I have had to had gonorrhea at one time in my life? If the answer is no. How did I get these.
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.

No: Diet drinks have been implicated in contributing to gulf war syndrome, desert storm syndrome, and may provoke migraine headaches in susceptible people. There is no evidence that any food additive causes multiple sclerosis, but some anecdotal comments raise concern of a potential to trigger a relapse, but no proof yet.See 1 more doctor answer
Polyarteritis nodosa: Pan (poly arteritis nodosa) is a disease of unknown cause. It affects small to medium sized arteries reducing or cutting off blood supply to organs.

Dilated arteries and strictures resemble rosary beads.See 2 more doctor answers
