Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Blocked fallopian tubes are a common cause for infertility. The fallopian tubes are the tunnel through which the egg travels from the ovary to the uterus for implantation. It is also where the egg and sperm most commonly meet for conception. Tubes can become blocked by scar tissue from a previous infection, endometriosis, surgery for an ectopic pregnancy, or other reasons.

A truly blocked tube cannot be treated with holistic medicine and almost always requires IVF, which bypasses the fallopian tubes for implantation. In some cases tubes are not truly blocked but rather the normal mechanisms to move the egg along are impeded. In this case fertility treatment with Chinese Medicine is effective.
