Does Your Fallopian Tubes Hurt When You Are Ovulating
Aka oviduct, uterine tube, or salpinx. It is basically a small tube connecting between the ovary and the uterus. This tube carries the eggs from the ovary area to the unterus. This is the tube that is cut/tied-up/or burned in women having the tuboligation procedure for permanent birth control purpose. Have ...Read more
Yes & other facts: The blood supply to the ovaries can come in small or larger part from vessels along the fallopian tube. Increasingly, we find that tubal ligation (particularly cautery) or hysterectomy, leads to earlier menopause because the loss of blood supply to ovaries causes the egg supply to fall faster. Earlier menopause also means earlier end to ovulation and menstruation, but we are talking a few years. ...Read more
It shouldn't change.: You still ovulate, but only the eggs from the remaining ovary have a tube to go down. ...Read more
Fallopian tubes: Blocked Fallopian tubes means the egg is unable to follow the route from the ovary to the uterus, making pregnancy difficult. They may be blocked for various reasons, including infection. Ovulation should still be occurring if you are in the age of fertility. I'm not sure what non detected means. Ask your GYN. All the best. ...Read more
I wasn't ovulating and they determined my fallopian tube was blocked. Now ovulating, is tube unblocked?

If an ovulation test shows im ovulating that means an egg has been released into my fallopian tube already correct?
My wife was confirmed that, one of the fallopian tube was blocked when tested by hsg, can she ovulate and how do we know.
Ovulation occurs even when tubes are blocked. The ovaries take turns having the mature egg. Using ultrasound we can see which side has the mature egg. It is possible to conceive with ovulation on the blocked side by the egg crossing over.
If the tube is blocked at the far end - hydrosalpinx - this could be affecting implantation. If the hsg showed hydrosalpinx she should see a md to remove it. ...Read more
I ovulated on cd 14 (felt pain suddenly, walking and sitting worsened this pain).Today cd16 I woke up with constan tmild pain in my fallopian tube. Why?
No definite cause: Ovulation pain is not experienced by all women and even those who do don't have it every cycle. Most likely your cd16 pain is related to ovulation with some bleeding from the corpus luteum (ovulation cyst). It could also be bowel pain. History of chlamydia makes you at risk for tubal pregnancy. When in doubt check pregnancy test and be seen by md. Likely will dissipate and we won't know the cause. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
It's the LH hormone: Ovulation test kits check for the presence of luteinizing hormone (lh). It is usually released in a "surge" by the pituitary gland as the trigger for ovulation. Therefore the testsdo not check for the actual egg but rather are indirect evidence that it was released. ...Read more
How long before ovulation should an IUI be done? Is there a chance washed sperms to swim beyond Fallopian tubes?
Doctors protocol: The doctor preforming your IUI will likely have a set office protocol that he or she will want you to follow. Ideally it is done within 6-8 hours of ovulation. If IUI is being timed around a BHCG injection then typically it is done within 24-48hrs of the shot. Confirm your schedule with your treating doctor. ...Read more

Under X-ray: The Interventional Radiologist administers local anesthesia and puts a catheter into the uterus, then a smaller catheter into the fallopian tube with the aim of clearing out any debris which clogs the tube. There may be some cramping but the procedure is not particularly painful. I ask my patients to premedicate with Motrin or a similar OTC medication ...Read more
Hysterosalpingogram: During a hysterosalpingram dye is injected via the vagina into the uterus. If the tubes are patent (open) the dye will flow out of the tubes into the abdominal cavity. To accomplish this some pressure is required to overcome the natural resistence of the tubes - which can cause pain. ...Read more

Not really: The hsg causes cramps. The discomfort one has can depend on such factors as her pain tolerance as well as who does the procedure and his/her expertise. For example, I perform all hsg's on my own patients and have done so for over 20 years. My techniques give less discomfort, for example, compared to a doctor who only does them on occasion or has only done them for a few years. ...Read more
Infection, scarring?: A swollen fallopian tube can be from an infection, including sexually transmitted disease, or from blockage of the end of the tube causing fluid to accumulate in the tube (hydrosalpinx). This can be due to scarring for infection or possibly endometriosis or prior surgery. It depends on what the doctor means by "swollen tube". ...Read more
