One physical factor which could be stopping you from getting pregnant is a blockage in one or both of your fallopian tubes. About 20 per cent of female infertility is related to blocked or damaged fallopian tubes. Your fallopian tubes can be blocked for a number of reasons:
The last of these reasons - inflammation - is the most common one we see. The inflammation can happen inside your fallopian tubes - usually the case with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia - or outside your tubes because of an infection from another organ such as the appendix.
The tubes get blocked due to damage from adhesions - where two damaged surfaces actually join together. Adhesions can also occur after pelvic surgery or as a result of endometriosis and they can impact your fertility in a number of ways - by separating the ovary and tube with new tissue or by blocking the outer end of the tube. In many cases, we can clear the blockage with microsurgery or by inserting fine catheters into the tubes.
These two types of blockages involve liquid rather than physical scarring.
We agree researching the factors which might be stopping you from getting pregnant is an important way to try to figure out why it’s not working. Coming in to see our Fertility GP is also a good place to start if you’re not convinced you need to see one of our Fertility Specialists but still need some answers.
