In case the fallopian tube is blocked, the passage for sperm to get to the eggs, as well as the path back to the uterus for the fertilized egg, is blocked. To prevent pregnancy in females quite often the fallopian tube is blocked by surgery due to which the egg released by the ovary is not able to reach the uterus and hence fertilization does not occur. If the fallopian tube is blocked then the female cannot conceive. The process of fertilisation starts in the fallopian tube hence if it is blocked then it is difficult for the female to get pregnant.
Effects of blocked fallopian tube on fertility
- Blocked fallopian tubes are a common reason for infertility. Sperm and an egg meet in the fallopian tube for fertilization. A blocked tube can prevent them from joining.
- If both tubes are fully blocked, pregnancy without medication will be impossible.
