If your body naturally blocks a Fallopian tube and a hsg proves nothing is getting through, can it naturally unblock itself?

Rarely. : The HSG procedure can in some cases open one or both Fallopian tubes. This is a temporary effect. Also a small catheter and guidewire can be used to clear out the Fallopian tubes. This can be arranged through an Interventional Radiologist or a Fertility Gyn. The test will be scheduled according to your cycle and you will get antibiotics.

Is it possible for fallopian tubes to unblock without intervention?

Is it possible for fallopian tubes to unblock without intervention?

Unlikely: If you know your fallopian tubes are blocked -probably from a dye/radiology procedure - that is a bad sign. This can be from many different causes, but I am not aware of a way to unblock them. Under the microscope, on cross section, the fallopian tubes look like a maze game (very convoluted insides with a ton of surface area). These areas have become scarred closed. You may need artificial means.. ...Read more

I have one blocked fallopian tube...I wanted to know what's the best alternative to surgery to unblock this tube?

I have one blocked fallopian tube...I wanted to know what's the best alternative to surgery to unblock this tube?

Depends on where: Tubal blockage where the tube leaves the uterus may have little overall effect on pregnancy if the other tube is open. Blockage at the end of the tube though is very detrimental to pregnancy even from the other tube. Due to fluid moving from the blocked tube into the uterus. If that's the case, likely need some surgery to fix the problem; removal or repair via laparoscopy. ...Read more

Md was able 2 free/unblock my rt fallopian tube only but said he couldn't guarantee it would function. Is there anythng I can do?

Hope for the best: Congratulations on having your tube unblocked. Your doc is correct though...There is no guarantee that the tube will work. This is the reason you should see your doc as soon as you think you are pregnant-to avoid any complications of an ectopic or the permanent loss of your tube. Good luck & i wish you well. ...Read more

Are there any remedies out there to help open or clear blocked fallopian tubes?

Are there any remedies out there to help open or clear blocked fallopian tubes?

Difficult: It's generally difficult to clear out blocked fallopian tubes because the blockage often comes from previous infection like chlamydia or from abdominal surgery. There are some infertility doctors that can use a small camera in the uterus called a hysteroscope and open the tubes that way, but it's still difficult. I recommend that you talk to an infertility expert. ...Read more

Could one Fallopian tube be partially blocked if the HSG only showed a very thin minimal release of dye?  Other tube was clear showing lots of die.

An obstruction: would cause the tube to dilate proximal to it. However, there are other abnormalities, such as inflammation/scarring, that can cause an abnormally narrowed or irregular tube. Also during an HSG a normal tube may spasm and look blocked or narrowed, so talk to your doc about your results. ...Read more

Do u think my surgeon can unblock my blocked fallopian tube. my right tube swollen and totally blocked and my right tube partially blocked . pls help?

Depends: My understanding is that sometimes the tubes can be unblocked, it depends on what is blocking them. Sometimes when something is pushing on them from the outside that can be moved or removed, allowing the tube to open. Since we have IVF these days, it is not clear if it is best to take the tubes out. I have heard when a tube is unblocked it may close back up within months. Your surgeon may know ...Read more
