Fertility - Infertility

Tubal damage

Mild damage to the fallopian tubes can affect the collection of the egg or its fertilisation and transport. Adhesions can disturb the anatomical relationship of the fallopian tube with the ovary.

Serious damage to the fallopian tubes usually leads to tubal blockage and infertility. Causes can include:

  • Tubal inflammations,
  • Other inflammations of the area such as appendicitis
  • Inflammatory complications due to surgical operations in the area.
  • The most common cause of blockage is chlamydia or gonorrhea infection.
