Fallopian Tube Damage or Blockage

Fallopian Tube Damage or Blockage – Causes, Signs, Diagnosis, and Treatment

Fallopian tube damage or blockage is a common cause of infertility, affecting millions of women worldwide. The fallopian tubes are an essential part of the reproductive system, responsible for carrying the egg from the ovary to the uterus, where it can be fertilized by sperm. Any damage, blockage or inflammation in the fallopian tubes can prevent pregnancy from occurring.

Importance of Fallopian Tubes in Pregnancy

The role of the fallopian tubes in pregnancy cannot be overstated. When an egg is released from the ovary, it travels down the fallopian tube, where it may meet sperm for fertilization. Once fertilized, the embryo travels down the tube and into the uterus, where it implants and develops into a fetus.

Causes of Fallopian Tube Damage or Blockage

Fallopian tube damage or blockage can occur due to several reasons, including:

  • Pelvic infections, including sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as chlamydia or gonorrhoea
  • Endometriosis
  • Previous surgery in the abdomen or pelvis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Previous history of ectopic pregnancy

Identifying the underlying cause of fallopian tube damage or blockage is essential to determine the most effective treatment plan.

Signs and Symptoms

Fallopian tube damage or blockage symptoms may include pelvic pain, heavy or irregular periods, vaginal discharge, pain during intercourse, and infertility. However, many women may not experience noticeable symptoms, and the only way to diagnose fallopian tube damage or blockage is through a specialist consultation.


Dr. Supriya Puranik, a leading infertility specialist in Pune, uses advanced diagnostic techniques to determine the severity and location of the blockage. These include pelvic ultrasound, laparoscopy, and hysterosalpingogram (HSG), a specialized form of X-ray imaging that highlights blocks or damage in the fallopian tubes.


Treatment options vary depending on the severity and cause of fallopian tube damage or blockage. Dr. Supriya Puranik provides an individualized treatment plan based on the patient’s medical history and physical examination. Treatment options include surgery to repair the tubes or remove blockages, in vitro fertilization (IVF), or a combination of both.
