When fallopian tubes are blocked, it affects the journey of the egg from the ovaries to the uterus, which is essential for conception. Understanding the implications of this blockage is crucial for women facing fertility issues.
Fallopian tubes play a vital role in the reproductive process. Each month, during a woman’s menstrual cycle, an ovary releases an egg. This egg enters the fallopian tube, where it awaits fertilization by sperm. If fertilization occurs, the fertilized egg (embryo) travels through the tube to the uterus for implantation.
In the case of blocked fallopian tubes, several scenarios can occur:
When fallopian tubes are cut, a procedure commonly known as tubal ligation, the pathway for the egg to travel from the ovaries to the uterus is interrupted.
As a result, the egg, once released from the ovary, cannot enter the fallopian tube or reach the uterus. Instead, the egg is absorbed back into the body over time. This procedure is often used as a form of permanent birth control.
If a woman does not have fallopian tubes, either due to surgical removal (salpingectomy) or a congenital absence, sperm cannot reach the egg, as the tubes are the natural pathway through which sperm travels to meet the egg. In such cases, natural conception is not possible.
The sperm, in the absence of an egg to fertilize, are eventually absorbed by the body. For women without fallopian tubes who wish to conceive, In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a common alternative, where fertilization occurs outside the body and the embryo is implanted directly into the uterus.
