CAUSES OF TUBAL BLOCKAGE IN WOMEN
The fallopian tubes are two thin tubes, one on each side of the uterus, which help lead the mature egg from the ovaries to the uterus. When an obstruction prevents the egg from traveling down the tube, a woman has a blocked fallopian tube, also known as tubal factor infertility.
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) Uterine Fibroids
2) Genital Tuberculosis
3) Ectopic Pregnancy
