Tubal Factor Infertility with Footsteps To Fertility Centre

Tubal factor infertility occurs when the fallopian tube(s) prevent sperm from reaching the ovary to fertilize an egg or prevents a fertilized embryo from reaching the uterus for pregnancy. The fallopian tubes on either side of the uterus and are the connections between the uterus and the ovaries.

Sperm fertilizes the egg in the outer one-third of the tube and the embryo is then moved towards the uterus for implantation.

Tubal factor infertility can affect 50% of all infertility cases.

Fallopian tubes are the connections between the uterus and the ovaries.

Sperm fertilizes the egg in the mid section of the tube and the embryo is then moved towards the uterus for implantation.

What causes tubal factor infertility?

Infections, abdominal surgery, and diseases such as tuberculosis ( TB ) and  endometriosis can cause scarring between the end of the fallopian tube and ovary. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two common sexually transmitted infections that can cause tubal infertility.Surgery can also damage your fallopian tubes.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) can also travel from the cervix through the uterus to the tubes, which can ultimately cause the delicate inner lining of the tubes to become permanently scarred. The opening of the tube next to the ovary may become partially or completely blocked; scar tissue will often form on the outside of the tubes and uterus.

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Tubal Factor Infertility

Most women with tubal infertility are asymptomatic. Often they don’t realize their fallopian tubes are blocked until they consult a doctor for infertility, though women with extensive tubal damage may experience chronic pelvic pain.

To confirm whether or not one or both fallopian tubes are blocked, your doctor may perform one of these two procedures:

  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray in which a dye is passed through the cervix into the uterus. The dye can be followed through the fallopian tubes to see if they are open. If the tubes are open, it does not mean that they are functioning normally. There may be extreme scarring or blockage inside the lining of the tube that cannot be detected with this test.

  • Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure involving a small incision just below the belly button with insertion of a small surgical instrument, called a laparoscope, to view the fallopian tubes. The laparoscope can determine whether or not the tubes are blocked or if there are other issues such as scar tissue adhesions.

If your tubes are found to be blocked, scarred, or damaged, your treatment options include in vitro fertilization (IVF) or surgery.

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF): Although a few tubal problems are correctable with surgery, women with severely damaged tubes have such poor chances of achieving pregnancy naturally that IVF offers them the best option for a successful pregnancy. Because very badly damaged tubes may fill with fluid (hydrosalpinx) and lower IVF success rates, your physician may recommend removal of damaged tubes prior to IVF.
  • Surgery: If your tubes are not badly damaged, surgery might help you get pregnant naturally. Your chance of conceiving after surgery is better if you are young, having minimal amount of scar tissue blocking the tubes, and if your male partner has healthy sperm.
