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

Hsg result show that I have have a blocked fallopian tube. please what is the treatment for blocked tube?

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

What the treatment very long time fallopian tube infection &swolen this is cause me pain of my left side. My doctor he only give me 2weeks antibiotics?

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

Do u think my surgeon can unblock my blocked fallopian tube. my right tube swollen and totally blocked and my right tube partially blocked . pls help?

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

Can i get pregnant with swollen left fallopian tube blocked. But the right tube not totally blocked.But I have lots of bad symptoms pain?

What did your doc: Say , your doc should have discussed this at length with you since he knows the true conditions of your tubes, if the left one is blocked then u can't from that one and if the right one is partially blocked or not normal you are at high risk of an ectopic pregnancy in the r tube so you either need your r tube fixed if it can be fixed or u need in vitro fertilization, please discuss with your doc. ...Read more
