Obstruction of the fallopian tubes: Causes, signs, and treatment of the disease
Obstruction of the fallopian tubes is a severe disease of the female reproductive system and a common cause of infertility. Due to the influence of many factors, pathology has developed. Women of childbearing age need to understand their signs and symptoms and check whether the obstruction of the fallopian tubes can be cured and whether they can become pregnant through the diagnosis.The fallopian tube is a paired organ of the female reproductive system in two elongated cylinders. They provide communication between the two cavities (abdominal cavity and uterus) and help capture and further move the egg that enters the abdominal cavity directly from the ovary and allows the sperm to pass from the uterus to the egg. Chemotaxis The characteristics of the test tube ensure the normal physiological process of fertilization.What are the types of blocked fallopian tubes?Blocking can be a unilateral or bilateral process. Only a specific part or several parts of the pipeline can be included in the pathological process. The fallopian tube may be partially blocked (partially blocked) or the entire length (completely blocked).According to the pathological process in which the fallopian tube occurs, the obstruction of the fallopian tube is divided into:
Blockage in the intramural area;
Isthmus blocking the pipeline;
Zigzag part blocked;
The funnel is blocked.
Anatomical obstruction due to mechanical obstruction in the lumen of the fallopian tube. It can be adhesions, scars, polyps, tumors, mucus, pus.Causes of occurrenceThe fallopian tube is deformed due to many diseases. The causes of tubal infertility may be:
Trauma to the internal reproductive organs,
Violation of tissue nerves
Congenital defects of the fallopian tube
The presence of adhesions
Pressure on the tumor tube-tumor, cyst, hematoma,
Changes in hormone levels,
What Signs Indicate Block Of The Fallopian TubesThe pathology may not show up for many years or even decades. It is usually the underlying course of the disease. If a woman has a history of infectious or non-infectious inflammatory processes in the reproductive system, the following symptoms of tubal obstruction should be noted:
Pain in the lower abdomen;
Pathological changes of leucorrhea (changes in color and smell);
Severe and significant weight loss (accompanied by tumor process).
All these signs are indirect and require further research to make a reliable diagnosis and determine the cause.
In this pathology, patients complaining about the inability to get pregnant are the most typical and common situations and are a guideline for gynecologists to suspect a tubal obstruction.Treatment The choice of treatment method for tube obstruction is due to pathological reasons.In the case of inflammatory processes and hormonal background changes, medications need to be prescribed, supplemented by physical therapy and general intensive procedures.Physiotherapy procedures include electrophoresis, muscle stimulation, bathing, gynecological massage. This treatment method is helpful for the treatment of inflammatory processes and tissue innervation disorders, and in some cases, brings positive results.
