Scar tissue outside of my left fallopian tube and very painful after period. Can I have surgery of this to get rid some scar I think this is the cause?

Scar tissue outside of my left fallopian tube and very painful after period. Can I have surgery of this to get rid some scar I think this is the cause?

Why?: Scar tissue does not need an operation if it is not causing any problem. Also, if you are having pain or fertility problems, AND you have scar tissue (there is no way to know without surgery), there is no guarantee of cause and effect. In other words, just because the scar tissue is there does not mean it is causing the problem. Last, citing scar tissue causes more scar, but ok if no alternative. Hope this helps! ...Read more

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

If I have scar tissue in front of my fallopian tubes and im having the HSG test done, would I still be able to get pregnant after ?

If I have scar tissue in front of my fallopian tubes and im having the HSG test done, would I still be able to get pregnant after ?

Maybe: It depends on how much scar tissue there is. A HSG can blow ouit mucous which can help, but if there is physical scar tissue, then the HSG probably wont fix anything, but it will help diagnose the problem ...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

A woman with regular periods, smoked 4-5 cigarettes a day for 2 months, can this be the cause of scar tissues and blockade of fallopian tubes?

A woman with regular periods, smoked 4-5 cigarettes a day for 2 months, can this be the cause of scar tissues and blockade of fallopian tubes?

No: Cigarette smoking has a variety of health effects that may be detrimental, but scarring and blockage of fallopian tubes is not one of them. Scarring of the fallopian tubes is usually due to infection, previous surgery or occasionally from bleeding related to ovarian cyst rupture. ...Read more

I had bladder surgery as a child and have a large scar between my pelvic bones. Could this have caused blocked fallopian tubes? Ttc for 2 yrs.

I had bladder surgery as a child and have a large scar between my pelvic bones. Could this have caused blocked fallopian tubes? Ttc for 2 yrs.

Unlikely: Without knowing the particular type of problem or surgery that you had as a child, in general, it would be quite unusual for uncomplicated urological surgery to be associated with injury to and blockage of your fallopian tubes, especially on both sides. If this is a concern, and no testing has yet been done, consultation with a gynecologist or fertility specialist may be helpful. ...Read more
