Blocked Fallopian Tube also medically known as Hydrosalpinx occurs when a woman's fallopian tube is blocked as a result of a fluid buildup and widening of the tube at its end.
However, it has been noted that it often happens at the fimbrial end of the tube next to the ovary or can also occur at the other end of the tube that attaches to the uterus.
Do you know that when the fallopian tube is blocked, the cells inside the tube secret fluid that can’t go out,therefore dilating the tube? Thus, this prevents fertilization by blocking an ovulated egg from moving from the ovary to the fallopian tube for fertilization by the sperm, therefore leading to the woman not getting pregnant.
Reports had revealed that damage to fallopian tubes can result in infertility without any obvious signs or symptoms.
