Infertility can be defined as the inability to get pregnant despite having unprotected sex for more than a year. Infertility can affect both men and women. There are many causes for this. Tubal infertility or infertility caused by blocked or scarred fallopian tubes accounts for around 25% of female infertility. Blockage in the fallopian tubes could also increase the risk of ectopic pregnancies.
The fallopian tubes connect the ovaries to the uterus. When an egg is released by the ovaries, it must travel through the fallopian tubes to reach the uterus. If the egg does not reach the uterus, it cannot be fertilized. There may be many causes for scarring of the fallopian tubes or blockage of the same. Some of the common causes are:
Infertility may be said to be caused by irregularities in the fallopian tubes if no other cause of infertility is found in standard infertility tests. To confirm this diagnosis, a hysterosalpingogram may be conducted. For this test, a dye is injected into the uterine cavity through the cervix. An X-ray is then used to follow the flow of this dye through the fallopian tubes into the abdominal cavity. However, this test does not indicate if the fallopian tubes are scarred. A laparoscopy may also be performed to detect the extent of scarring and damage within the fallopian tubes. In extremely rare cases, tubal catheterization may also be performed to assess the states of the mucus lining the fallopian tubes.
Tubal infertility can be treated in two ways; surgery to treat the fallopian tube scarring or clear blockage and IVF or In Vitro Fertilization. Surgical treatment for tubal infertility depends on the extent of the damage. In the case of scarred fallopian tubes, the scar tissue may be resectioned with lysis of adhesions. In case of blocked fallopian tubes, surgery aims at clearing the blockage so as to reopen the tubes. In some cases, reconstruction of the tubes may also be required.
IVF involves harvesting the eggs from the woman and introducing them to sperm cells in a laboratory. 3-5 fertilized zygotes will then be reintroduced to the woman’s womb. IVF has a much higher success rate as compared to tubal surgery. However, it involves the use of hormone medications and hence is usually considered a last resort. The IVF process can be repeated multiple times in case the pregnancy does not reach full term.
