Fallopian tube blockage is common cause of infertility. Statistics show women are prone to infertility more due to blocked fallopian tubes at present compared to past. There are several reasons behind blocked fallopian tube and one of them is changed lifestyle. However, we shall look in depth regarding causes and treatment.
Fallopian tube blockage is divided into three. They are:
1) Distal Tubal Occlusion: In this type the end of fallopian tube (near ovary) gets blocked.
2) Midsegement Blockage: In this type, the middle segment of fallopian tube is blocked.
3) Proximal Tubal Occlusion: The end of fallopian tube (near uterus) is blocked.
Causes of Fallopian Tube Blockage:
Depending upon the type of obstruction, the cause varies.
Cause of Distal Tubal Occlusion: This condition is commonly known as hydrosalpinx. Hydrosalpinx is caused due to Chlamydia trachomatis, a sexually transmitted infection. The infection damages fimbriae. Function of fimbriae is to sweep the ova from ovaries into tube for fertilization. When damaged, it loses its function and hence fertilization never takes place.
Causes of Midsegment Obstruction: It is caused by tubal ligation. Women who do not wish to conceive undergo tubal ligation. While reversing the procedure the scar tissue blocks the passage of fallopian tube, (in any form of surgery scar tissues develop and continue to grow).
Causes of Proximal tubal Occlusion: This is generally caused due to infection from procedures like abortion, miscarriages, cesarean section, or Pelvic Inflammatory disease
Other Causes of Fallopian Tube Blockage:
1) Endometriosis (around 13.6 million women in US alone suffer from Endometriosis)
2) Uterine Fibroids
3) Genital Tuberculosis
4) Ectopic Pregnancy
Treatment options to unblock fallopian tubes can be divided into Medical (involving surgery and drugs) and Natural (involving herbs and natural therapies)
Surgery: This is done through opening up the abdomen or either through laparoscopy, which is done through a small incision.
Salpingectomy & Salpingostomy: In this procedure, the part of blocked fallopian is removed surgically.
Fimbrioplasty: In cases where the Fimbriae is damaged this procedure is performed. It involves rebuilding the fimbriae surgically. However, very few doctors are expert and licensed to perform.
Tubal Cannulation: This is performed in cases of proximal tubal occlusion. A catheter is inserted via cervix into the uterus and the block is unblocked.
Tubal Ligation Reversal: This procedure is conducted on women who wish to conceive after they had undergone tubal ligation. It is a surgical method in which doctors clip away the tied fallopian and join the other ends.
Medical Surgeries can leave scar tissues and all the above-mentioned procedures have a success rate of just 30% to 40%. The costs involved in such surgeries are much higher costing a fortune. The other way around is to opt for Natural Treatment which are cost effective and completely safe.
Traditional Chinese Medicine: Traditional Chinese Medicine or TCM is picking up worldwide. TCM has shown great rate of success not only in cases of infertility but also in every medical condition. It consists of energy flow and ways on how to balance it. Regarding Infertility there is only one world-renowned doctor named Dr.Lisa Olson who is Chinese Medicine Researcher. She has written a book called Pregnancy Miracle on how to unblock fallopian tubes and cure infertility in common. Her book has shown positive effects. Moreover, the book includes other natural treatments like fertility massage, Infertility cleansing, Castor Oil therapy and much more.
Which Treatment should I opt for, Surgical or Natural?

The reason is obvious as they are much safer and affordable except for the fact that they consume more time.

On the other hand with natural therapies you are paying only few bucks like $50 and so. After trying all sorts of Natural treatments you can then opt for medical treatments.

Going for the second round of natural treatment will further increases the chances of unblocking it.
What are the General cause of Blocked Fallopian tube?
Most general cause is unhealthy lifestyle. Women today are more under stress than they were before and hence their body tends to react to the stress which causes discomfort and hinders pregnancy. Another famous cause is diet. If you are frequently consuming junk foods then We strongly recommend that you change it completely. Opt for organic and soon you will notice change. Getting rid of your unhealthy lifestyle even for few days might bring about positive changes.
Do the Natural Treatment you have recommended really provides Guarantee?
Yes, the natural treatment that we have recommended really does provide a guarantee of 60 days. i.e. if you do not like the product then you can return it within 60 days and your full money will be paid back. However, we had readers for whom it took nearly 3 months 90 days for the natural treatment to show its effects. Therefore, we would like to stress that do not jump to conclusion within 60 days. Try to follow the steps for a little longer and you will start seeing results. This is probably because not all women are the same and each needs a different time frame for treatments to work.
