What is meant by fallopian tube blockage?
Fallopian tubes connect with the uterus and ovaries. During ovulation, the egg is released by the ovaries which are picked up in the fallopian tube, and then it goes to the uterus. Sperm reaches the vagina during intercourse.
The sperm swim to the uterus into the tubes and meet the egg, which results in fertilization. The fertilized embryo is transported to the fallopian in the next 5 days where the implantation occurs. This functioning is important as it allows women to conceive naturally.
However, if the fallopian tube functioning is not proper then pregnancy cannot occur naturally. Fortunately, undergoing IVF treatment allows women to increase the chances of conception. If you are wondering how the treatment is carried out then get in touch with our fertility expert at the IVF centre in Punjab.

- Sonosalpingography (SSG)
The radio-contrast liquid is used in HSG and water for SSG. if there is a blockage in the tube then the liquid will spill out from the open end of the tube. If the results are not clear, then laparoscopic is done.
How can a woman conceive with a blocked fallopian tube?
