In brief: Many Causes

Some times an infection develops that can block the tubes.
If a woman has a cesarean delivery, sometimes scar tissues develops that blocks the tubes. It is also possible that the tubes were damaged or infection before delivery and over time the damage just got worse and eventually caused the tubes to be blocked.

In brief: IVF or cannulation

Blocked fallopian tubes can be a result of inflammation, infection or surgery.
Blockage can be near the uterus (proximal) or near the ovary (distal). Proximal blockage, or sin (salpingitis isthmica nodosum) can be unblocked with a wire guide under x-ray guidance. Distal blockage requires ivf for most women. Some cases can be treated surgically, but these must be carefully selected.
