In brief: Test tube pregnancy

Fortunately, blocked tubes do not hinder viewing the ovaries with ultrasound.
If the fallopian tubes are blocked, the most cost effective and promising way to a baby is test tube fertilizatiion. One step in this process actually is that the doctor visualize the ovaries with and under the guidance of ultrasound retrieves eggs from the ovary, which are then fertilized in test tubes.
