Hydrotubation Of Fallopian Tubes
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.
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
No: If your tubes are truly blocked (requires an x-ray usually to diagnose) there is no 'natural' way to unblock them. Surgery can often be succesful, though.
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.See 2 more doctor answers
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".See 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes yes!: It depends on the patient and the reason the tube (s) is (are) blocked. Tubal cannulation under fluoroscopy and by hysteroscopy have both been studied extensively since the early 1990s (it was actually first done with a whale bone in the 1890s!) the most important consideration is whether the woman is a appropriate candidate for the procedure.
What do you mean?: The fallopian tubes have cilia in them which are finger like protrusions that help to move fluid, eggs, and fertilized eggs along. I suppose you could say they flutter or wave but this is not something you would feel.See 1 more doctor answer
No, if tubes absent: There needs to be a way for the sperm to get to the egg, and typically that's through the fallopian tubes. If the tubes have been surgically removed, this not possible. If they've been"tied" (typically cauterized/burned, which results in scarring) as with sterilization, there is a small chance an opening can develop, with risk of pregnancy that can be a normal pregnancy, or abnormal in the tube.See 1 more doctor answer
Pain and infection: If the fallopian tube rupture or breaks open, usually it is the result of a previous infection inside the tube. As it opens up, it can be very painful. It can also release infection into the entire belly that can be very dangerous and may require hospitalization, antibiotics, and even surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
Embryologic remnant: Certain para-tubal cysts are embryologic remnants, in other words 'leftover stuff' from when the woman was in utero and her pelvic organs were forming. Males and females embryos both start with 2 sets of internal ducts: one is intended to develop in males and the other in females. Leftovers from either duct can be present as cysts near the fallopian tube.See 1 more doctor answer
Best to bypass them: While scarred tubes can sometimes be partially repaired, the results are generally poor and you can only rearrange the scarring, not eliminate it. There has been such enormous advances in various assisted reproductive technologies in the past 20+ years that trying to surgically repair fallopian tubes makes little sense.
Easily: Sometimes the fallopian tube is clogged with natural secretions that have become thickened, preventing conception. Fallopian tube recanalization is an attempt to either flush these away or push them out of the way. This reopens the tube and restores the potential for conception.See 1 more doctor answer
