Learn the necessary tests to detect blocked fallopian tubes

Blockage of the fallopian tubes or one of them is a problem that some women face and may be the cause of infertility and difficulty in getting pregnant. There are a group of tests that the woman undergoes to diagnose the blockage of the fallopian tubes, according to "MayoClinic".


The fallopian tubes are two tubes, each of which is located on either side of the uterus, through which the mature egg travels from the ovary to the uterus, and the occurrence of any inflammation in it may lead to partial or complete blockage.


Symptoms of blocked fallopian tubes in women:


1- Difficulty getting pregnant


2- Abundant vaginal secretions


3- Feeling of pain in the abdomen and pelvis, knowing that it is possible to not show any symptoms indicating the blockage of the fallopian tubes, and the matter usually varies from one woman to another.


Methods for diagnosing blocked fallopian tubes:


1- X-ray test


X-rays are performed in the second week of the menstrual cycle, before ovulation, and this test depends on the woman injecting an amount of dye into the uterus and fallopian tubes, and if this dye spreads in those areas, there is no blockage, but if the dye does not pass, it indicates a blockage in the ducts.


2- Laparoscopy


It is a surgical procedure that the doctor may resort to using an endoscope, which is a thin, illuminated instrument equipped with a small viewing camera, and it is passed through very small openings in the abdomen.


3- Ultrasound test


Ultrasound is a technique that uses high frequencies to produce a complete picture of the fallopian tubes and detect if they are blocked or not.
