What's the best treatment for hydrosalpinx on one side?

What's the best treatment for hydrosalpinx on one side?

Occlusion vs. Remove: Depending on the severity of the hydrosalpinx, the fertility specialist may want to either have it removed or blocked off (occluded where it meets the uterus). Removal is generally recommended to avoid the risk of ectopic pregnancy and chronic pain/infection as well as fertility problems getting and staying pregnant.

I m having mild hydrosalpinx in distal end of right sided tube. What can I do take IVF treatment.

I m having mild hydrosalpinx in distal end of right sided tube. What can I do take IVF treatment.

Questions to ask: When you see the infertility specialist ask about your left tube. If it is normal then the nonfunctioning right tube may not be an issue. If both tubes are blocked then ivf is a highly successful option.

What are treatments for hydrosalpinx? I was found to have fluid in my tube but nothing was given to me I was just sent home with nothing

Remove hydro + IVF: Fluid in hydrosalpinx may leak into the uterine cavity and prevent implantation and pregnancy. One possible treatment is surgical correction of hydrosalpinx then attempting to conceive naturally. The chance of obtaining a functional fallopian tube and pregnancy after surgical correction is small. Modern management is laparoscopic excision or interruption of the hydro followed by ivf.

Pain r/t hydrosalpinx: is surgery the only option? Will it fix the problem?

Hydrosalpinx: The only treatment for a long standing hydrosalpinx is surgical resection. The longer the condition has exsisted the more likely that the tubal mucosa are damaged and the fallopian tube even if opened surgically will not transport an egg!

Doubt: Very unlikely that all methods you describe will help you. Having surgery is your decision, but probably your best option. Get 2 nd opinion to review all your options.

What are the options for getting pregnant when you have one remaining tube that has hydrosalpinx? The other tube was removed due to an ectopic

What are the options for getting pregnant when you have one remaining tube that has hydrosalpinx? The other tube was removed due to an ectopic

Have the tube remove: Removed and do in vitro because the tube that has the hydrosalpinx is most likely totally blocked and if it would be open it will not be normal and most likely would end up with another ectopic which as u know is no good.

1tube hydrosalpinx & 5 months pregnant, my concern is if it is caused by std the hydro & didn't have treatment before does it affect the baby at birth?

1tube hydrosalpinx & 5 months pregnant, my concern is if it is caused by std the hydro & didn't have treatment before does it affect the baby at birth?

Complex question: Your OB MD should have run STD testing to rule out "the gift that keeps on giving" when you presented at your 1st or 2nd visit. (STD's) If the hydrosalpinx is not an active infection then it is unlikely to affect the present pregnancy. However, your OB MD may still give you a course of antibiotics to make sure that it won't

Hydrosalpinx can be treated by antibacterial?

Hydrosalpinx can be treated by antibacterial?

No: A hydrosalpinx is a tube that is already damaged and the antibiotics will not fix it.

Can hydrosalpinx that was already treated can occur again?

Can hydrosalpinx that was already treated can occur again?

Yes: It depends on what the treatment was, but definitely a risk to recur. Tuboplasty and salingo-neostomy are terms for conservative treatment of hydrosalpinx by surgically creating a new opening at the far end of the tube. These are definitely subject to closure, with subsequent recurrence. Treatment of hydrosalpinx by removal clearly cannot recur.

Hydrosalpinx it could be cancerious in future if I over look it?

Hydrosalpinx it could be cancerious in future if I over look it?

Low risk: Most hydros are from inflammatory damage, and are otherwise normal tubes. Cancer of the tube is very rare, but could theoretically present as a hydrosalpinx.

Pain with hydrosalpinx do I need surgery?

Maybe: Hydrosalpinx can be a problem. It can lead to chronic pain or rupture and cause infection. And it can prevent pregnancy as well. But in many women they cause no symptoms. If it needed to be removed. Then surgery would do it. But not everyone needs surgery.

Should hydrosalpinx be removed in post menopausal women?

Should hydrosalpinx be removed in post menopausal women?

If causing problems: A hydrosalpinx (blocked and swollen fallopian tube) should be removed if fertility is a concern (for example a naturally or surgically post-menopausal woman who is planning to use an egg donor, or donor embryos). If fertility is not a concern, it should be removed if it causes symptoms, like painful intercourse.

Can you have hydrosalpinx with blocked tube?

Yes: A hydrosalpinx is caused when then the distal end (the end farthest from the uterus) of the tube is blocked and fluid accumulates in the tube.

How does fluid get into a tube in hydrosalpinx?

How does fluid get into a tube in hydrosalpinx?

From inside the tube: The fallopian tube secretes small amounts of fluid inside itself to bathe the interior in an environment that keeps it moist and healthy and appropriate for a possible fertilization of an egg. If the tube is damaged or blocked, the fluid can accumulate and result in a hydrosalpinx.

Does hydrosalpinx always result in infertility?

Does hydrosalpinx always result in infertility?

Not always: But sometimes. Risk increases the larger or more abnormal the hydro is. Hydrosalpinx is a risk for tubal pregnancy.
