Swollen or closed?: Your fallopian tubes can get "swollen" or blocked from endometriosis. Also, chlamydia, a common cause of swollen tubes does not always have symptoms. If your tubes are swollen, but not blocked, you are at risk for a pregnancy in your tubes, which is a life threatening situation. You do not have to treat it unless you want to get pregnant. You will need to see a fertility specialist. ...Read more

Options: If you are otherwise healthy and only one tube is blocked, often nothing is done as you can still get pregnant. Laparoscopy is a possible treatment with the aim of breaking up adhesions from prior infections. It is also possible to open tubes from inside the tubes using x-ray guidance. This is similar to angioplasty for occluded or narrowed blood vessels. ...Read more

Salpingitis: This may be due to a variety of microorganisms, including neisseria gonorrheae, chamydia trachomatis, and others. If no abscess is present a two week course of an antibiotic (if chosen judiciously) may be sufficient. If you relapse after treatment you may need referral to a specialist. Good luck and hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Yes: Yes, pregnancy can still occur. Ovulation medications to encourage eggs to grow on the side of the open falloian tube should be considered. Intrauterine insemination would be very helpful to increase the amount of sperm entering your reproductive tract. ...Read more

How do u get a swollen fallopian tube?

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". ...Read more

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
