Fallopian Tube Flush
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.
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
What is the remedy for a blocked fallopian tube. Are there no purgative or fertility cleans that could flush or dissolve the blockage?
Depends: Where it is blocked, and why it is blocked. Some blockages can be opened by running a tiny wire through the blockage, some might require cutting out the blocked portion and anastomosing the ends...Still others might be opened at the far ends with surgery. Ivf is also a good solution for pregnancy in most of these cases too.
Fallopian tubes: Fallopian tubes are paired tubular structures, right and left, that connect the uterus to the pelvic cavity. The tube picks up an egg (oocyte) after ovulation at its far end and transports it down towards the uterus. If the woman had intercourse sperm swims through the uterus into the tube at the near end, when conception occurs it is in the mid-portion of the tube.
Go to GYN: You might need to get a hysterosalpingography or uterosalpingography a radiologic procedure to investigate the patency of the tubes. An interventional radiologist can sometimes open the occluded tubes. Go to doctor to discuss options.
No: You can sometime have them put back together or have a reanastomosis if their is enough tube left to perform that procedure. It is hard to know if their is enough tube for sure prior to performing the surgery. Need to consult with a specialist. Also, you could consider IVF - this is very successful method to help achieve a pregnancy after having a tubal. Hope this helps.
Many ways: Fallopian tubes can be blocked for several reasons: a prior infection of the tubes, appendix, or uterus, previous surgery causing scar tissue inside the belly, and endometriosis. Sometimes surgery can provide answers by looking for these causes, and sometimes there is no obvious answer.See 1 more doctor answer
Can't heal: After coagulation (burning) the tubal segment is denatured - and its dead, so it can't truly heal. Sometimes tubal ligations done this way do fail because the 'burned' part develop a fistula (a hole) that leaves the tube open. This is not healing though, the tube is still abnormal.
No: If they are blocked surgery may or may not be able to unblock them, depending on how abd they are blocked and what shape they are in sometimes they both need to be removed and u will need in vitro fertilization, if they do become unblocked u have to be followed closely so u do not get an ectopic pregnancy.
