What is a Blocked Fallopian Tube or Tubal Blockage?
Every healthy female has two fallopian tubes that are open and attached to the ovary on one side and the uterus on the other side. When these tubes are blocked due to the collection of fluid or any other inflammation, it is known as a tubal blockage. This tubal blockage can lead to infertility as it doesn’t allow the sperm and egg to meet.
A blocked Fallopian tube is one of the most common causes of infertility. the fallopian tube passes the egg from the ovaries to the uterus. There is one ovary and one fallopian tube on each side of the uterus. fertilization, that is the meeting of the egg and sperm also occurs in the fallopian tube. So when an egg is fertilized by sperm in the female body, it moves through the fallopian tube to the uterus for implantation.
If a fallopian tube is blocked, the path for sperm to get to the eggs, as well as the passage back to the uterus for the fertilized egg, is blocked. A Female is not able to conceive a baby in her life due to blocked fallopian tubes or tubal blockage.

Diagnosis of the blocked fallopian tube
A blocked fallopian tube is diagnosed by a special diagnostic tool that is hysterosalpingogram or we can say HSG. In the HSG procedure, a gynecologist places a harmless dye through the cervix by a tiny tube. When the fluid is in place, x-rays of the pelvic area is taken, if all is normal then dye will go through the uterus and fallopian tube and spill out around the ovaries and into the pelvic cavity. However, if the fluid does not get through the tubes then patient may suffer from fallopian tube blockage. HSG is a painless procedure. Other tests such as ultrasound and hysteroscopy may or may not be required after HSG.
