What are the causes of salpingitis isthmica nodosa?

No clear cause: Salpingitis isthmica nodosa can block the fallopian tubes close to the uterus, and may make pregnancy difficult. It is not caused by anything you did or didn't do.

Hello how you doing?  Can i still have kids after being diagnosed with salpingitis nodosa and left tube gone ?

See a specialist: We "never say never" unless both tubes are removed or both are 100% blocked.

Sin may affect both sides. You should see a reproductive endocrinology and infertility (rei) specialist for an evaluation if ttc. ...Read more

Can someone still get pregnant after getting treated for salpingitis?

Yes: Like other infections/inflammatory conditions, an immunocompetent system will heal and become functional.
