How long does it take to clear the eustachian tubes once they are clogged from cold and sinus infection? It happened after a cold and sinus infection. Taking amxicillin; hearing is muffled.

A: A blocked ear after an infection is a very individual thing. If this is the first time this has happened and if you have no problems with your ears flying then it will probably clear rapidly (days). If this is something that happens frequently then there may be a more chronic condition going on such as chronic sinusitis which can smolder for a much longer time (weeks). Muffled hearing suggests
fluid in the ear which usually means this is a more serious condition and should be evaluated by an ENT physician who would not only look at your ears but also look in your nose with a nasal endoscope to evaluate the sinuses and eustachian tube area and obtain cultures if necessary. This is best done a week or so after taking the Amoxicillin if symptoms are still present.
Nasal irrigations with a nettie pot may help speed up the recovery as will a few days of afrin use. ...Read more

ENT would know best: Put together the solutions you have been given and review these with your doctor. Because of the ringing insure your inner ears are healthy. There is very little you can do to make Eustachian tubes behave. Sometimes a course of steroids will help and if there is an indication placing tubes. All the best. ...Read more

Not an expert, but..: If you have your tubes surgically opened, it's possible that you may get pregnant through regular insemination, i.e., sex. Egg retrieval with in vitro fertilization may be another option. This assumes that you have normal ovarian reserve. If you do not, ask your fertility specialist about the option of the donor egg. Good luck with this. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Harvesting your eggs & creating embryos that can be inserted in your womb at a fertility center. ...Read more

Can someone tell me how to unblock my eustachian tubes naturally?

Valsalva maneuver: If you do not have a cold and if you do not have any pus in your nose, you can try to pop your ears with both nostrils pinched tightly and with mouth closed, gently blow your nose. The air in the nose will then be pushed into the back of the nose and may clear the mucus in your eustachian tube. People on airplanes do this to equalize middle ear pressure.

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

Can laproscopy unblock my tubes and what does proximal obstruction mean are my tubes totally blocked?

Possibly: If adhesions are causing the blockage then laparoscopy can take those down. Adhesion can, however, come back but less likely if done with laparoscopically. Proximal refers to near the origin of structure (as oppose to distal, away from the origin of the structure). In terms of total blockage, I can't help u as this can only be determined by ur gyn with imaging. Good luck. ...Read more

Does an sis test help clear out tubes like an HSG test does?

Not why done!: Neither test is primarily done to, "clear out the tubes". The hsg is done to evaluate the tubes for patency, strictures, scarring, dilatation, etc. Tubes that are otherwise normal appearing but with mucous plugs may be cleared by the hsg. The sis may have similar results but if there are other tubal issues there could then be increased risk of ectopic implantation. ...Read more
