Natural Therapies for Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Natural Therapies for Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Article overview

While there are many causes of infertility, a blockage of the fallopian tubes is often the reason why many women are unable to conceive. The fallopian tubes are the pathways in which the ova travel from the ovaries down into the uterus, and if there is a blockage in these tubes it can prevent this from occurring.

The fallopian tubes can sometimes become blocked or even damaged due to certain conditions that a woman may suffer from. In rare cases, the blockage to the fallopian tubes may have been present since birth as a birth defect, but have went undetected until the woman reached adulthood and tried to conceive.

Get to Know Your Fallopian Tubes

Upon ovulation, the egg will travel from the ovary to the fallopian tubes where the sperm will meet the egg and fertilization occurs. Once fertilized the zygote (fertilized egg) is pushed through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus where implantation will occur.

The fallopian tubes connect to the uterus at the utero-tubal junction where the fallopian tubes open into the uterine cavity. These very thin tubules are lined with cilia, which are fine hair-like cells. From there they extend out and slightly around toward the ovaries on both side of female body.

The fallopian tubes are described in sections for medical reference. The infundibulum is the end near the ovary that is associated with the fimbriae. The fimbriae is a fringe of tissue at the distal end (opening side toward the ovary) of the fallopian tubes. The fimbriae are covered in cilia, which look like tiny hairs. Just prior to ovulation sex hormones signal the fimbriae to fill with blood and move to touch the ovary in a gentle sweeping motion. When an oocyte (ova) is released at ovulation, the fimbria and cilia sweep the oocyte into the fallopian tube to be moved toward the uterus to wait for fertilization.

The ampullary is the section of lateral tube (central section moving toward the uterus). The ampullary is the main part of the fallopian tube. From there, moving inward toward the uterus the tube narrows into what is known as the isthmus. The isthmus is the part connected to the uterus at the utero-tubal junction.

Cells of the Fallopian Tubes are Affected by Hormones
There are two types of cells within the fallopian tubes. Ciliated cells are most abundant in the infundibulum and ampullary. Estrogen increases the production of cilia cells in the fallopian tubes. Scattered between the ciliated cells are peg cells which produce tubular fluid. This fluid contains important nutrients for both sperm, oocytes (ova), and zygotes (fertilized ova). The secretions also promote capacitation of the sperm. You may not know it, but the sperm cannot mature for complete fertilization without this important fluid. Progesterone increases the number of peg cells. Estrogen increases the height and secretory activity of the peg cells. In addition, tubal fluid flows against the action of the cilia, near the fimbriated end. Not only is progesterone and estrogen balance vital to the menstrual cycle overall, but it is vital to the health and proper function of the fallopian tubes as well.

Causes of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Location and Types of Blockages

These are the three main locations for fallopian tube blockages.
1. Proximal 2. Midsegment 3. Distal

There are different types of fallopian tube blockages. Because the fallopian tubes have different parts and are a tube, there may be different parts of the tube blocked. Each section has its own name. Doctors have also come to find out that there are patterns of disease or trauma that may affect certain parts of the fallopian tubes more than others.

Proximal tubal occlusion involves the isthmus. This can occur after infection such as complications from abortion, missed miscarriage, cesarean section or PID. Permanent birth control procedures like Essure block the isthmus.

Midsegment tubal obstruction of the ampullary is most often due to tubal ligation damage. Tubal ligation is a surgical procedure to permanently prevent pregnancy. Some women who have had tubal ligation change their mind later and life and choose to have this procedure reversed. This can be done surgically and has a 75% pregnancy success rate. Tubal ligation removal comes with its own risk for development of more scar tissue on top of scar tissue already present from the initial tubal ligation procedure.

Distal tubal occlusion is the type of blockage that affects the part of the fallopian tube end towards the ovary. This type of blockage is typically associated with hydrosalpinx. Hydrosalpinx is often caused by Chlamydia trachomatis infection, which is a sexually transmitted disease. Untreated Chlamydia is known to cause both pelvic and fallopian tube adhesions.

In less severe cases only the fimbriae may be damaged. They may become stuck together in masses or may be damaged enough to no longer function as they should. As we learned above, the fimbriae have the important role of sweeping the oocyte (ova) into the fallopian tube for fertilization. If they no longer function then the oocyte never makes it to its destination for fertilization.

Damage to any part of the fallopian tubes can also be caused by ectopic pregnancy, PID, endometriosis, uterine fibroids or abdominal surgery.

Common conditions that may cause blocked fallopian tubes are:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Tubal Ligation Removal
  • Complications from lower abdominal surgery such as Cesarean section
  • Genital Tuberculosis (still common in developing countries, especially India)

Endometriosis and Fibroid tumors are both conditions which are becoming present in more women every year. In fact, an astounding 13.6 million women in the United States alone suffer from mild to severe endometriosis.

Pelvic inflammatory disease is another common condition which women suffer from. Pelvic inflammatory disease or PID, is an umbrella term for a number of different problems that create an inflammatory infection in the female reproductive system. PID is almost always the direct result of a sexually transmitted disease, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia, and is responsible for about 100,000 cases of female infertility per year.

All of these conditions can cause blockage to the fallopian tubes by having adhesions, scar tissue, tumors or polyps form inside the path of the tube. The fallopian tubes may also become stuck to other parts of the internal body; the bladder, ovaries, uterus, bowels, ect. Damaged fallopian tubes can become twisted or the walls of the tubes themselves may adhere together causing a total blockage.

Partially damaged fallopian tubes may remain open enough for pregnancy to occur, but a partial blockage increases the risk for ectopic pregnancy. The fallopian tubes are very thin to begin with, it does not take much for them to become blocked, preventing the ova from traveling through. Studies have shown that low progesterone levels, smoking and use of fertility medications may alter how the fallopian tubes function, which increases risk for ectopic pregnancy. Any of the conditions above may cause a partial tubal blockage as well, which also increases risk for ectopic pregnancy.

Diagnosing Blocked Fallopian Tubes

There really are no outward signs that will let you know if you are suffering from blocked fallopian tubes. If you have ever suffered from pelvic inflammatory disease, there is however a very good chance that your tubes are blocked, as doctors estimate that at least three out of four women that have had a sexually transmitted disease do suffer from tubal blockage.

The primary indicator that there is a blockage is an inability to conceive. Fortunately, there are medical tests that detect any abnormalities or blockages. If there is evidence of some type of blockage to the tubes, further investigation is generally performed using a laparoscope which will help the doctor actually see into the fallopian tubes. Here are details on how blocked fallopian tubes are diagnosed…

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)
Hysterosalpingogram is an X-ray test, using a contrast dye to view any obstruction in the fallopian tubes. The dye is inserted through a thin tube that is placed up through the vagina, into the uterus. Filling the uterus with this dye will then spill into the fallopian tubes. X-rays are then taken to determine if there is an injury or abnormal shape of the uterus and fallopian tubes, including obstruction in the tubes. This test is the number one test performed to determine if there is a blockage in the fallopian tubes.

Chromotubation
This test is similar to hysterosalpingogram because chromotubation includes dye being passed into the uterus and fallopian tubes as well. This test is performed during laparoscopy, so that doctors can see the dye spilling from the fallopian tube. The dye used for this procedure cannot be seen on an X-ray, it is blue in color. This test is considered the most reliable way to determine fallopian tube blockage, but does require surgery.

Sonohysterography
This is a non-invasive procedure where ultrasound imaging is used to determine if there are any abnormalities of the reproductive organs. This type of test is not always a reliable way to determine fallopian tube blockage since the tubes are so small. This test may help to determine hydrosalpinx or other issues such as uterine fibroids.

Medical Procedures to Open Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Thousands of women are diagnosed with blocked fallopian tubes each year and the number one question on their minds…how can I reopen them? There are many options for healing the fallopian tubes and in many cases they can become open once again. It is important to recognize that the fallopian tubes are about the size of a spaghetti noodle in width. Once they are damaged it may be difficult to reverse that damage. They are very delicate. Any sort of trauma can alter their function and damage the tubal tissues. Below are a variety of medical options for reopening the fallopian tubes.

Surgical Options
Tubal surgical procedures can either be done by open abdominal surgery or laparoscopy (small incision).

Salpingectomy
This procedure is the removal of part of the fallopian tube. This is commonly performed for hydrosalpinx prior to IVF. According to Fertility and Sterility, untreated hydrosalpinx makes IVF half as likely to be successful.

Salpingostomy
This procedure is performed when the end of the fallopian tube is blocked by hydrosalpinx. The surgeon creates a new opening in the fallopian tube entrance nearest the ovary. The success of this procedure is often temporary and often scar tissue reforms causing another blockage within 3-6 months of the procedure.

Fimbrioplasty
This option may be performed on women with damage to the fimbriae. If the fimbriae and its cilia are stuck together by scar tissue, which is preventing the ova from being picked up, a fimbrioplasty may be recommended. This procedure rebuilds the fimbriae. Very few doctors are experts in this type of procedure and medical insurance often does not cover the cost of this procedure. Fimbrioplasty is now recommended in select cases over salpingostomy, which has been shown to be less successful.

The above procedures have about a 20-30% pregnancy success rate.

Selective tubal cannulation
This procedure is performed for proximal tubal occlusion (where the tube meets the uterus). Guided by hysteroscopy or fluoroscopy, doctors insert a catheter through the cervix, uterus and into the fallopian tube. This is non surgical procedure and has a 60% pregnancy success rate.

Tubal ligation removal, known as tubal reanastomosis
Reversal of a tubal ligation is a surgical procedure that is done with the assistance of a microscope and is generally performed in a hospital setting or outpatient surgical facility. The surgeon removes the portion of the fallopian tube that was tied or cauterized in the original surgery and reattaches the two ends to make a complete tube. This procedure has a 75% pregnancy success rate.

During surgery doctors may clip away adhesions from the fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus so the reproductive organs can move freely once again.

Risks for Fallopian Tube Surgery and Procedures

  • Regrowth of scar tissue and adhesion. Any kind of surgery runs the risk of these types of formations. The tubes may become blocked again or adhered to the abdominal wall, other parts of the reproductive organs, or other organs in the surrounding location, for example the bladder. Scar tissue may also form on other parts of the abdominal cavity, including the reproductive organs due to the surgical procedure.
  • Opening the abdomen runs the risk of pelvic infection.
  • There is a great risk for ectopic pregnancy.

While surgery is a common treatment for blocked fallopian tubes, there are natural options which can have great results without causing additional scar tissue to form.

Natural Therapies for Fallopian Tube Health

1. Fertility Cleansing

Fertility cleansing helps to cleanse the entire reproductive system and increase circulation to the reproductive organs. Starting your natural fallopian tube therapy should begin with fertility cleansing. The herbs in this cleanse are absorbed into the body and go to work where they are needed. Fertility Cleansing creates a “clean slate” within the body that helps the body to respond and utilize other natural remedies better.

2. Systemic Enzyme Therapy

Systemic Enzyme Therapy is a method for helping the body clear itself of excess tissue, breakdown scar tissues, cleanse the blood, increase circulation to the reproductive organs and reduce immunological response. Enzyme therapy consists of using systemic enzymes (enzymes naturally found in the body) to help the body reduce inflammation, occasional pain, reduce scar tissue build up and more. Traditionally systemic enzymes have been used by athletes to help them recover, elderly wanting to reduce the effects from arthritis, people suffering from autoimmune issues and the list goes on.

Systemic Enzyme Therapy may help to reduce the scar tissue that are blocking your fallopian tubes. Specific systemic enzymes help to eat away and reduces the fibrin (the material that makes up scar tissue) over time. This type of therapy is an extremely promising for helping to reducing scar tissue and inflammation.

3. Abdominal or Fertility Massage

Massage is another natural therapy that could help support fallopian tube health. Massage helps to increase circulation and break up adhesions. Massage provides a great non-intrusive option for women with blocked fallopian tubes.

There are three options for massage when it comes to supporting fallopian tube health. You can find a massage therapist who specializes in abdominal massage (or better yet visit Clear Passages for specialized fallopian tube treatment), you can book a consultation with a Mayan Abdominal Practitioner, or you can learn how to apply Self Fertility Massage™ at home.

Benefits of Massage for Fallopian Tube Health:

  • Helps the body to clear blocked fallopian tubes*
  • Massage helps to break up scar tissue*
  • Increased circulation aids in tissue elimination*
  • Helps to reduce inflammation*
  • Helps the body to loosen tight or twisted tissues*

Self Fertility Massage™
Self Fertility Massage™ is a series of massage techniques that are used to help support reproductive health, the menstrual cycle, and your fertility all from the comfort of your own home! This type of massage is easy to learn, perform and is cost effective!

One of the greatest benefits of massage is the ability to break up adhesions. Adhesions are comprised of scar tissue. These adhesions are what causes the fallopian tubes to become blocked, stuck together, stuck to other parts of the reproductive organs or other internal tissues of the body. Self Fertility Massage™ gently helps to break up adhesions while helping the body to get rid of the remaining tissues. The techniques used in Self Fertility Massage include massaging the fallopian tubes in addition to the uterus and ovaries. Massage provides a great non-intrusive option for women with blocked fallopian tubes.

Clear Passages Therapy
Clear Passages uses hands-on physical therapy techniques known as the Wurn Technique to unblock fallopian tubes. This technique is done without the use of drugs or surgery. There are many studies proving success of this technique for naturally unblocking the fallopian tubes. They have clinics in 5 locations in the United States and women from all over the world travel to be treated in their clinics.

According to a study published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (2008), the Wurn Technique had a 61% success rate in opening blocked fallopian tubes that were totally blocked. The results of this therapy lasts many years in most cases, as compared to surgical procedures which usually regrow scar tissue and cause the fallopian tube/s to become blocked once again in approximately 6 months of the surgical procedure.

Clear Passages has success with their techniques in opening blocked fallopian tubes in women with…

  • Two completely blocked fallopian tubes
  • One blocked fallopian tube, one tube previously removed
  • Hydrosalpinx (fluid filled tube)
  • Distal end blockage (distal tubal occlusion, end near ovary)

The average cost of a 20 hour Clear Passages therapy session is $5,200.

The Arvigo Technique of Maya Abdominal Massage™
Developed by Dr. Rosita Arvigo, this holistic pelvic care approach uses techniques taught to Dr. Avigo by her mentor Don Elijio Panti, who was a Maya Shaman in Belize, Central America. Dr. Arvigo spent 10 years learning these ancient massage techniques. Thousands of practitioners around the world are trained and perform Maya Abdominal Massage™ in their clinics.

This type of massage has been found to work to loosen and aid the body in removal of old scar tissue and adhesion formation, which may be causing the reproductive organs to become stuck together, or to other parts of the internal body.

One session, depending on the amount of time spent cost anywhere from $70 to $100 per session. Prices may vary depending on the practitioner.

4. Castor Oil Therapy

Castor oil therapy has been used for centuries for helping with healing issues in the body and more specifically the reproductive system. By applying these packs externally, positive benefits have been found. A Castor Oil Pack is a cloth soaked in castor oil which is placed on the skin to enhance circulation and promote healing of the tissues and organs underneath the skin. Castor oil therapy assists fallopian tubes by helping to soften the tissues and increase circulation to the area.

Castor Oil packs promote healing to the reproductive system by stimulating circulation and triggering the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing metabolic waste, old diseased cells and tissues. This is very important, especially if blocked fallopian tubes may have been caused by ectopic pregnancy, sexually transmitted disease (STD), infection from past surgery, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts or PID.

Castor oil is one of the only ways to stimulate the lymphatic system to move. The lymphatic system relies on us to get it to move. The heart runs our circulatory system, but exercise, dry brushing, some herbs and Castor Oil are some of the only ways to get the lymph to move. Castor Oil Packs heal underlying tissues very well, when used consistently over time. This therapy works great in conjunction with any type of fertility or abdominal massage therapy including Self Fertility Massage™.

5. Herbal Therapies

There are many herbs that have been traditionally used to help support fallopian tube health. Below are actions that herbal therapies may have and below that is a section on herbs that have been found to have those actions. We are looking at 4 key actions which work to reduce infection, inflammation, promote healthy circulation and work to support hormonal balance.

Antibiotic: The antibiotic acting herbs help to clear out any infection that may exist in the reproductive system or fallopian tubes. Supporting immune function with antibiotic herbs may be important if there is a history of PID, STD’s, abdominal surgery, or endometriosis.

Anti-inflammatory: Anti-inflammatory herbs help to reduce inflammation, which in turn reduces pain and works to reduce further scar tissue production. If inflammation persists in or around the fallopian tubes, scar tissue may form.

Circulatory: There are herbs that help to increase blood flow through the reproductive organs. Healthy circulation to the reproductive organs is vital to healing the fallopian tubes. This is because fresh healthy blood will bring in vital nutrients, enzymes and oxygen for healing cells. Once the cells have used up what they need and have renewed or have replaced old damaged or unhealthy cells, the metabolic waste (damaged tissues) is removed from the body.

Hormone Balancing: Remember that hormonal balance is essential for proper fallopian tube function. When working to support fallopian tube health, we always want to include some herbs that support hormonal balance.

-Goldenseal root (Hydrastis canadensis): This herb is extremely antibiotic, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. It works to heal any infection in the reproductive system, while also reducing pain and inflammation from foreign tissue growth. Reduction in inflammation may help to prevent scar tissue and adhesion. Goldenseal may help to protect the fallopian tubes from damage due to an infection. Also supports health of mucous membranes.

-Ginger Root (Zingiber officinalis): A wonderful herb used to increase circulation and promote blood flow to the reproductive organs. The increased circulation also helps to reduce inflammation of the uterus, ovaries or fallopian tubes.

-Dong Quai root (Angelica sinensis): One of the best herbs for promoting circulation to the reproductive organs. Dong Quai acts on the circulatory system and lymphatic system reducing tissue congestion. It has both pain reducing and anti-inflammatory properties.

-Hawthorn (Crataegus officinale): Works to reduce abdominal congestion. Hawthorn is extremely high in antioxidants, improves the integrity of blood vessel wall, aids the body in proper oxygen use and improves blood flow.

-Peony Root (Paeonia officinalis): Peony has been found to aid in increasing progesterone levels, lower testosterone and balance estrogen. Overall this herb has excellent hormone balancing support. It also aids in pain reduction and relaxation.

-Wild Yam root (Dioscorea villosa): Helps to promote normal hormone levels and overall balance within the reproductive system.

-Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva ursi): One of the best herbs to reduce fluid retention and congestion. This herb has been shown to be effective for combating vaginitis, due to its antimicrobial activity. Uva Ursi aids the body in removal of excess fluids for proper daily detoxification.

All of these herbs can be found in the herbal product Women’s Best Friend.

Blocked Tubes Q&A

Q: How will I know if my tubes are healed and unblocked or not?

A: Whether you have done natural treatments from home, Clear Passage Therapy or had a surgical procedure, the only way to find out if your tubes are still open is to have another hysterosalpingogram or chromotubation test performed. Hopefully you will already be pregnant with a healthy pregnancy by then and will not have to have further testing!

Q: Can natural therapies for blocked fallopian tubes heal twisted fallopian tubes, or tubes that are adhered (stuck) to other organs or tissues in the body? What about blocked fallopian tubes that have been blocked for many years?

A: Fallopian tubes that are severely damaged need special care. In those cases we would suggest you work with a specialist. A specialist will be able to evaluate your unique situation and determine the best possible course of care. Clear Passages is a great option for those who do not want surgery. In some cases, those where the fallopian tubes are severely twisted or stuck to other parts of the body, at-home therapies may not be completely effective and should not be relied on as the sole solution.

The longer the fallopian tissues have been damaged, the longer it may take to work to get them to function naturally again. It really depends on the extent of damage, including length of time. Your doctor should be able to help you determine this.

Q: Is it possible to naturally regrow the fimbriae and cilia once it is damaged by scar tissue?

A: There are no known at home natural therapies that are proven to regrow either the fimbriae or cilia, but it will not hurt to look into options that reduce scar tissue formation, promote circulation and protect cellular health (antioxidants). Fimbrioplasty is a surgical option to help reconstruct damaged fimbriae. Contacting Clear Passages is another option.

Q: Why don’t you suggest using herbal tampons for blocked fallopian tubes?

A: We find that the risk of infection and misuse of herbal tampons is greater than the benefits. Purchasing herbal tampons requires a woman to rely on her own self-care and understanding of use, if the tampons are contaminated or misused in any way, pathogens may be directly inserted into the vaginal canal, increasing the risk for infection.

We also find that many of the herbs used in herbal tampons are just as effective if taken orally. Herbal tampons are also sold at an unbelievable price for what they are, making other natural options more cost effective.

Summary

Blocked fallopian tubes are one of the main causes of infertility today. There are many natural options to help your body support normal fallopian tube function such as massage, enzymes and herbs. If you think you may have blocked fallopian tubes consult with your doctor so you can get an HSG test to determine if you have fallopian tube blockages. Once you have the diagnosis and location/severity of the blockages it will be easier to determine which route to take, whether it be a natural therapy or IVF.

  1. Hello, my name is Susan and I really need some help. When I was 16, I was raped. I was afraid of anyone knowing as I was still a virgin, but one of my cousins found out and took me to the doctor. I learned I had an STD and I don’t think it was treated properly. I am 36 now and trying to have a baby, but it won’t happen. I am working, but I don’t think I can afford surgery. I would do anything to have a family.

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Hello Susan!

      I am very sorry that you had to go through that and are struggling to conceive now.

      It may help you to learn about How STD’s Can Affect Your Fertility. Do you still have an STD? Have you recently seen a doctor to help you learn what might be contributing to your inability to conceive so many years after your experience? This many be helpful as so much can change in 20 years.

      It is a bit difficult for me to offer guidance based on just a small piece of the bigger picture of your health. Given what you have been through, I would recommend a one on one Fertility Consultation with our fertility herbalist. She will be able to help guide you in the right direction with the right natural fertility program for your reproductive system health needs and is also someone you can confide in and trust.

      Take care!

  2. Hi! I am from Romania and I hope that you will understand my English. In 2010, I got pregnant and I lost it after 2 months. In 2011, I was again pregnant, but with an ectopic pregnancy. They saw my tube because I had my HSG test done in 2011, and they found threadlike tubes (very thin), but permeable both of them. Ooo and I forget to tell you, I have a retroverted uterus.

    Now, can you tell me please if I can get pregnant easy without another ectopic pregnancy? I have been trying to conceive for 10 years with my husband. I am 34 years old and he is almost 31 years old. Thanks and I hope you can give me an answer. Kisses from Romania

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Hello Maria!

      I am sorry that you have been through this!

      To be completely honest, there is no way for me to know if you will be able to get pregnant easily. The natural therapies talked about in this article are designed to support normally functioning fallopian tubes and proper uterine position. Take time to review and consider them.

      It may also help you to learn about Healing From Ectopic Pregnancy.

      You may also want to consider a Natural Fertility Consultation. Our email consultations provide you with a personalized written guide and audio recording from a fertility herbalist, explaining the best natural therapies, herbs and supplements for your unique fertility issues.

      Take care!

  3. I had an HSG test done today and it was discovered that I have a partially blocked tube as the contrast was not spilling into my abdomen as it would normally do. I have a tubal reversal in March. Got pregnant in April and Miscarried in June. What do you suggest I do about my tube? I only have 1 ovary so the other tube is of no good use. Please help.

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Dear Misha,

      You could consider the suggestions made in this article. The Systemic Enzyme Therapy, herbal therapy, castor oil therapy and Self Fertility Massage have all been shown to support the body’s natural inflammation and immune response, encourage healthy circulation to the fallopian tubes and reproductive system, while promoting the body’s natural ability to cleanse the reproductive system in part by aiding the breakdown of fibrin (bands of scar-like tissue), all in an effort to support normal fallopian tube function and health.

      I wish you well!

  4. Hello! I had an HSG and found out both of my fallopian tubes are blocked. I just started Maya Abdominal Massage Therapy and castor oil packs and steams, I do not have a regular period (starts anywhere from 25-35 days), I do not have plentiful cervical mucus, and I do have painful ovulation, I’m not certain if I have endometriosis but I did have Chlamydia 4 years ago that we caught and treated with antibiotics. My plan is to purchase the Fallopian Wise Kit, and the Fertility Cleanse Kit, My question is: What do you think about doing a veggie/fruit juice fast/cleanse while doing the kits, or is that unnecessary?

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Dear Jessica,

      We are proponents of juicing to support fertility and drinking freshly made juices daily. It is not necessary to fast while doing the Fertility Cleanse or any of our programs, rather we suggest following a Fertility Diet.

      Best wishes!

  6. (5). Herbal Therapies.
    Dear Madam, please I am interested in buying the HERBAL THERAPY; and what is the cost of getting a specified dosage? how long I’m I supposed to take it?
    But I don’t know how it can get to me in Nigeria, and secondly how do I pay you since I don’t have a credit card – (even if there’s possibility of the medication getting to reach me in Nigeria).
    How I wish I have any of my friends coming from America to Nigeria, it would have been easier for it to get to me – because, away from that it might be ceased at the airport by the authorities in charge of drugs, and that’s my fear.
    So,

  7. can chemicals used on the sanitry towel cause blocked follopian tubes?

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Hello Phillip!

      The chemical in sanitary towels and feminine care products may contribute to hormonal imbalance, but have not been found to cause blocked fallopian tubes.

      Best wishes!

  8. Hi there,
    Thank you for writing the article. I just want some advice, please. I had 2 ultrasound scans which showed 8.5cm left ovarian cyst. I had an MRI scan which showed that it is not an ovarian cyst, but there is a cyst in my left Fallopian tube, which is now 9.5cm. My doctor suggested laparoscopy because it is causing me severe pain. But I am terrified, what if they remove the Fallopian tube, or cause adhesions or other problems. Would the treatment above help me? What would you recommend? I really want to remove this cyst naturally. Is there any hope for me to follow the natural route, or should I agree to surgery? I would really appreciate your help and advice.
    Thank you

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Hello Sue!
      Fallopian tubes are about the size of a spaghetti noodle in width and are very delicate. Any sort of trauma can alter their function and damage the tubal tissues. Once they are damaged it may be difficult to reverse that damage.
      Yes, surgery can be scary, but with blocked fallopian tubes it may be necessary depending on the type of blockage and in this case the type of cyst you have. And you are correct, due to the delicateness of the tube by nature, there is no guarantee surgery will not damage the tube or lead to further adhesions. It is going to be best to find a practitioner/specialist in this area of expertise to guide you. A specialist will be able listen to your concerns, to evaluate your unique situation and determine the best possible course of care. You should know too that Clear Passage Physical Therapy Clinics are a great option for those who do not want surgery.

      The good news is that the natural therapies talked about here and combined in the FallopianWise Kit can be used alone, or alongside any type of treatment options you are considering, which may greatly help to improve outcome.

      I wish you well as you decide the best course of action for you!

  9. Have done 2 surgical operation for fibroid in which d 2nd doctor told me that one of my fallopian tube was cut off and since then have not been to have a baby, does it mean that d remaining tube was blocked or what.

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Hello Lydia!
      There is no way for me to know if your remaining fallopian tube is blocked. I am sorry this has to be a concern for you!
      You will want to discuss with your healthcare provider ways in which you have know if your remaining fallopian tube is functioning properly or not.
      Regarding uterine fibroids, while surgery is often necessary to help women deal with them, surgery does not address the underlying hormonal imbalance that leads to their recurrence. You can learn more about supporting your body in dealing with uterine fibroids here…

  10. My both tubes are blocked by adhesion and my doctor suggests me for IVF. Can my tube be reopen by Herbal therapies or massage. I was suffered from genital tuberculosis.

    • Hi Sena,

      It is very difficult for me to know the extent of damage to your fallopian tubes. Since both of your fallopian tubes are damaged, IVF may be your best option in achieving a healthy pregnancy. This risk of ectopic pregnancy increases greatly when both fallopian tubes are damaged. You may want to consider any of the natural treatment options listed in the above article, which are going to promote normal fallopian tube health, but are not guaranteed to unblock the fallopian tubes. I wish you all the best, as you must navigate this difficult decision.

  11. my doctor say that one of my tube is block and the other is not completely block what do you think is the best treatment for me??

    • Hi raph,

      I am not sure what treatment is best for, as I am not sure the extent of damage to your fallopian tubes. If you are looking for a natural route, please consider promoting normal fallopian tube health with the FallopianWise Fertility Kit, while also researching the work they are doing at Clear Passages physical therapy clinics. It is also advised you talk to your doctor about medical options as well. It can take time to unblock the fallopian tubes through natural means and it may not be 100% effective, increasing your risk of ectopic pregnancy. Typically IVF is advised.

      Best Wishes!

  12. i had a miscarriage 3 years ago and i have been trying for two years now to get pregnant is it a possibility that my tube is blocked and if so what are the best home remedies that i can accesses here in jamaica

      Dear Neca,
      Honestly, there is no way for me to know if your fallopian tubes are blocked. Your healthcare provider would have to perform testing to help you know this. There are herbs, supplements and natural therapies to support normal fallopian tube health that are detailed in this article. We can ship that which we refer to to Jamaica through The Natural Fertility Shop.
      Regarding home remedies, I am unaware of any. Home remedies are not our focus. You might seek the guidance of an herbalist, healer, or naturopathic doctor near you for further guidance in this area.

  13. How soon after an hsg can you start doing the fertility self massage. I found out that my right tube is blocked today and I want to work on unblocking it.

    • Hi Shannon,

      Wait a week post HSG before beginning the massage.

    • Ok, thank you. Also, realistically is there a chance that the massage will actually unblock a tube?

    • Hi Shannon,

      Self Fertility Massage alone may help the body to clear a blockage that is very mild, but realistically will not, if performed alone.

  14. How wil i unblock my only one tube and which kit should i used.

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      Fallopian tubes that are severely damaged need special care. In those cases we would suggest you work with a specialist. A specialist will be able to evaluate your unique situation and determine the best possible course of care. Clear Passages is a great option for those who do not want surgery. It is important to recognize that the fallopian tubes are about the size of a spaghetti noodle in width and are very delicate. Any sort of trauma can alter their function and damage the tubal tissues. Once they are damaged it may be difficult to reverse that damage.
      There are however natural ways to support normal fallopian tube health. Please contact customer care for guidance.
