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. In this article, we’ll go over the causes of blocked fallopian tubes, medical procedures commonly used to unblock fallopian tubes, and natural therapies for fallopian tube health including fertility cleansing, systemic enzyme therapy and self-fertility massage.

The fallopian tubes can sometimes become blocked or even damaged due to certain conditions that a woman may experience. In rare cases, the blockage to the fallopian tubes may have been present since birth as a birth defect, but has gone 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 sides of the 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 after 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 of the muscle of the uterus that opens into 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. Studies published in BJOG, An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, note that in may cases of blocked fallopian tubes both secretory and ciliated cells are dead or missing. 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 sections and are a tube, there may be different areas of the blocked tube. 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 in life and choose to have this procedure reversed. This can be done surgically and has a 75% pregnancy success rate. Tubal ligation reversal 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 (dilated and fluid-filled tube). 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.

Common conditions that may cause blocked fallopian tubes are:

  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Tubal Ligation Reversal
  • 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 more prevalent in 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 and 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 causing adhesions and scar tissue to 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, etc. 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, so it does not take much for them to become blocked, preventing the ova from traveling through. As explained in the journal Human Reproduction Update (Volume 12, Issue 4, July/August 2006), studies have shown that low progesterone levels, smoking and use of fertility medications may alter how the fallopian tubes function, which increases the risk for ectopic pregnancy. Any of the conditions above may cause a partial tubal blockage as well, which also increases the 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 a 15%-50% chance that your fallopian tubes are blocked.

The primary indicator that there is a blockage is an inability to conceive. Fortunately, there are diagnostic tests that can detect any abnormalities or blockages if there is evidence of some type of blockage to the tubes. The Journal of Human Reproductive Sciences explains diagnostic tests very well in their Jan.-June 2009 edition (see a link to this in the reference list for detailed explanations), but here are summaries 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.

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. It is not the initial test performed unless there is another reason to perform surgery such as chronic pelvic pain.

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 and spillage of the fluid cannot always be seen on ultrasound. 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 pencil in circumference. 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).

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.

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.

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 a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that has a 60% pregnancy success rate.

Tubal ligation Reversal,
Reversal of a tubal ligation, known as tubal reanastomosis, 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 under general anesthesia. 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.
  • 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 is blocking your fallopian tubes. Specific systemic enzymes help to eat away and reduce fibrin (the material that makes up scar tissue) over time. This type of therapy is extremely promising for helping the body to reduce excessive scar tissue formation and inflammation.

3. Abdominal or Fertility Massage

fertility massageMassage 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.

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 possible benefits of massage is the ability to break up adhesions. Adhesions are comprised of scar tissue. These adhesions are what cause 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 and increase circulation to detoxify and restore optimal function to the reproductive organs, including the fallopian tubes. 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 the success of this technique for naturally unblocking the fallopian tubes. These studies were published in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2015 in the peer-reviewed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine. Clear Passages has clinics in 7 locations in the United States and 2 in the UK. 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 last 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 after 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)

Contact them to ask about the cost of an individualized session based on your health history.

Mercier Therapy
Created by Dr. Jennifer Mercier, Mercier Therapy is a deep pelvic organ visceral manipulative technique in which the reproductive organs are mobilized and blood flow restored. Organ restrictions are relieved and movement replenished amongst the organs and surrounding structures to enhance their natural and most optimal function.”

Mercier Therapy packages are called the Shared Journey Fertility Program which consists of an initial consult that includes a health history review and pelvic organ mobility test. Should the program be the right fit for the client than the cost of all of the sessions, including supplements and one full year of cycle monitoring is $2250.00.

In the words of Dr. Mercier, “I believe that women with past infection or tubal reversal can produce scar tissue or mucous plugs and with deep manipulation, we can bring a positive change to the tubes.”

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 Mayan 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 the 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, may 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 a past surgery, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts or PID.

Castor oil is one of the only ways to stimulate the lymphatic system. Within the lymphatic system is a fluid called lymph and this system relies on us to get it to move. The heart runs our circulatory system, but the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump like the circulatory system has in the heart. 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. Herbal medicine categorizes herbs by different types of actions. When working to improve fallopian tube health, there are 4 key actions we like to focus on, they are as follows…

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, STDs, 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.

Herbs for Fallopian Tube Health:


    • root

(Hydrastis canadensis):

    • This herb is extremely 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 the 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 the 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 the 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 open is to try and get pregnant, then have a 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 the 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 when taken orally. Herbal tampons are also sold at an unbelievable price for what they are, making other natural options more cost effective.


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 surgery, a natural therapy or in-vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF is a way to bypass the tubes and insert an embryo into the uterus directly. Eggs must be retrieved via surgery or by a transvaginal approach, then fertilized or frozen.

    I was told that ontop of having fibriods, which may not be the problem of my fertility issues. I also have thyriods and my fallopian tubes are blocked. My doctor went straight to saying that I should do IVF, but I also want to try things naturally. What can you recommend for me. My husband and I have been trying for 6years and found out about my blocked tubes 2 weeks ago. I was also thinking of trying tubal cannulation.

    Any advice would really help.

    • Dear Ruth,

      I’m sorry to hear about your struggles and challenges!

      Given all that you are dealing with and that the effectiveness of natural therapies will depend on the location and/or severity of the blockage, in addition to what has led to, or is contributing to the blockage, it may be best to consider a Fertility Consultation. Working one on one with our fertility herbalist allows her to lay out an entire natural fertility program for you based on your specific fertility health needs.

      Our fertility herbalist happens to be well educated in how to best naturally support thyroid health as well, so I hope you will consider.

      All my best!

    Hi, I had a tubal ligation done. However I did an hsg test and it shows that my left tube is reconnected but is now blocked with fluid at the end. What’s the success rate of the tube cleansing system?

    • Dear April,

      Hello again!

      We have a number of encouraging success stories, but do not track success rates. This is because our programs are reliant on the individual to take their health into their own hands. We have no control over lifestyle choices, dietary habits, other health conditions, commitment to using the products consistently over time, etc. The degree to which each woman experiences a fertility health issue, even if given the same name, is so very different as well. This is why we cannot provide statistics for success.

      I hope that is reading the success stories and suggestions in this article, you feel empowered.

    Im 28 years old, I had an ectopic pregnancy 2 months ago which was treated by methotrexate. I got my periods again last month which was extremely painful and had lots of clots. I’m really stressed out and scared that I will have an ectopic again. I have been reading about fertility cleanse and want to buy it. I already have the conception tea and womens best friend and take them everyday, so it is ok to start the whole phase of fertility cleanse after taking the conception tea? Will the cleanse help me conceive or at least increase my chances of normal pregnancy?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Dear Anne,

      I am sorry for you loss and that you are scared. I wish I could take that away!

      It would be best to pause taking Conceptions Tea and Women’s Best Friend while doing Phase 1 of the Fertility Cleanse. These two products are Phase 2 of the Fertility Cleanse, and can then be continued again after cleansing is complete. Women’s Best Friend is suggested for use for 1-2 months and then it is best to take a one month break from it before resuming use.

      Fertility Cleansing is a first step in naturally supporting fertility health post loss. We feel a very beneficial first step! Consider also learning tips for how to move forward and supporting the body in having a healthy pregnancy in the article Healing From Ectopic Pregnancy.

      All my best!

    My tubes are not blocked, they are opened. I got pregnant once but had a miscarriage. I’m trying again.

    The problem with my tubes is that I have some outside adhesions. One tube is a bit too high and the other one is kinda connected to the ovary. This is due to PID.

    Will I benefit from this massage?

    Thank you and love your website! 🙂

    • Dear Marcy,

      Self Fertility Massage is a series of massage techniques that are designed to help boost fertility health (including fallopian tube health) is a variety of ways. Consider learning more about How to Use Self Fertility Massage™ to Boost Your Chances of Conception. It may be helpful in more ways than one.

      Consider also taking time to learn more about Systemic Enzyme Therapy which is known in part to support the body’s ability to break down fibrin (the substance that makes up scar tissue) and normal circulation to the reproductive organs.

      Please can you help me again? I had a normal period after the D&C. On 9, 10, 11CD I did castor oil packs + massage.

      On 11, 12 DC I had brownish discharge and now 13, 14DC I’m having red spotting. Is this normal? Is castor oil cleaning something?

      I have PCOS but I don’t have problems with spotting during the cycle. Never had this at all.

    • Dear Marcy,

      Spotting can be tricky and caused by a variety of factors from – hormonal shifts, starting new natural therapies, fertility health conditions, ovulation (some women spot when ovulation occurs) or failure to ovulate, poor nutrition. This could also be a result of the uterus contracting in response to these natural therapies (the uterus “waking up”).

      Fertility Massage and Castor Oil Therapy can be continued while spotting and should they be the cause, spotting should be temporary. If concerned, please pause these natural therapies, or reach out to your healthcare provider.

    Hi, I’m curious to know if there has been anyone you’ve given this information to/dealt with has a story similar to mine but has become pregnant naturally or through surgery.

    I’ve recently from 2013-14 have had several HSG tests and Nov.25, 2014 I had a myomectomy to remove 9+ fibroids. I was told after this that my tubes were blocked (1. Proximal) besides that my uterus and ovaries look good and that the clinic i went to had no experience to do anything further. They said I need to have IVF but I think that there are other option(s) naturally and surgical.

    Thanks in advance if you can help with information.

    • Hello Vanessa!

      We do have a story that may be a bit helpful although her experience was not exactly like yours. Read Meg’s story here… Know that no two fertility health issues present the same even if they share the same name. Each woman’s experience is so completely different from severity of fertility health issue and cause, to diet and lifestyle habits and age. It can be quite helpful to hear of others success none-the-less.

      The natural therapies shared in this article can be used alongside any type of treatment options you are considering, which may greatly help to improve outcome. To other natural treatment options are Clear Passage Physical Therapy and Mercier Therapy. Consider learning more about them.

      I hope this is helpful information!

    After going through this article, a flint of hope ignited in me to bring my wife’s smile back. She had cyst in ovary and fallopian tubes blockage. Went through laparoscopy to remove the cyst in 2007. It was ok, but suddenly, she wants baby and also the cyst seemed regrown. She is 40 yrs and IVF is not possible. She hardly smiles now a days, I have to act like a foolish just to see her smiling face. Recently, She is never active in bed, but moaning and groaning about the situation. But I have started your remedies. Hope this will work.

    Hi, just want to know if you heard the Felopio product? anyone have used it? What can you say about it? Is it really true that can correct the blockage of fallopian tubes?

    • Dear Amie,

      I have heard of the product called Felopio. We do not support it’s use, so I can not speak to it’s efficacy. The effectiveness of natural therapies will depend on the location and/or severity of the blockage, in addition to what has led to, or is contributing to the blockage. Consider asking your healthcare provider if he can help you understand these factors as you contemplate the best plan for you.

      Consider also learning of others’ success (7th story on the page) with the program outlined in this article.

    Due to ectopic pregnancy my left tube is already removed.
    I have adopted the Laproscopy for the right tube and below are the remarks from Doctor:
    My doctor advised IVF.

    Is there any hope for me to conceive naturally??

    • Dear Tania,

      This is a hard question to answer because each individual case differs. To my knowledge “phymosis” simply refers to the way the fallopian tube looks. It may help to talk to your doctor about determining what is contributing or has led to this for you. Take time also to read this Fertility Q&A – Are There Natural Remedies to Unblock Fallopian Tubes? to learn the potential options for unblocking fallopian tubes through natural remedies and medical procedures.

      Take care!

    Thank you for the enlightening article. My case has been an heartbreaking since I have had two ectopic pregnancies and subsequently two operations during those times. I went for an HSG last year and was diagnosed with blocked fallopian tubes. My doctor advised that the only way I can conceive and have kids is through IVF. However after reading this article, I am wondering if there is hope for me to conceive naturally?
    Thank you once again!

    • Dear Jessica,

      I am thankful this article has given you hope!

      We have seen results from those who commit to the program outlined here. Consider reading Meg’s story (2nd down on the page). Her’s is similar to yours and may offer yet even more hope.

    Do any of these treatments work for *damaged* but unblocked tubes?

    • Dear JLeeM,

      They may…

      The effectiveness of natural therapies will depend on the location and/or severity of the damage, in addition to what has led to, or is contributing to the damage. Consider asking your healthcare provider if he can help you understand these factors as you contemplate the best plan for you.

    My sister was married in 2011, had an HSG after 6 months and was diagnosed with blocked fallopian tubes. One tube is delinked and she opted for IVF twice, but has not succeeded. On further allopathic treatment for 4 years, she has undergone HSG again and unfortunately this time one tube is not seen and the other tube is seen blocked filled with hydrosalpinx. What are her possibilities of conceiving?

    • Dear Asma,

      I am sorry your sister has been faced with this challenge. Thank you for reaching out to us on her behalf.

      As you may have read here, hydrosalpinx is commonly caused by Chlamydia trachomatis infection, which is a sexually transmitted disease (STD), or sexually transmitted infection (STI). It may help when determining whether natural therapies alone may be effective for your sister, to have her discuss with her healthcare provider what has led to hydrosalpinx for her.

      The good news is that we have seen positive results from the natural fertility program detailed in this article. Consider sharing this information with your sister as she learns of ways to support her fertility health.

      Best wishes to her!

    I don’t know where to start… I have read this article with tears flowing down my face. I am so heartbroken. An HSG determined I have a blocked left tube and scar tissue blocking my right tube. I suffered an ectopic pregnancy in 2008. Then I had the Paraguard placed once I was cleared to do so. I had it removed in 2013 and thought I’d be able to conceive, but haven’t. After almost two years I went to a specialist since my doctor was only prescribing Clomid and my progesterone levels never rose. I wanted answers and got them to my dismay. I have been advised that IVF is my best option because Laproscopy may not remove scar tissue or may cause it to grow back worse. I am so heartbroken I do not know what to do.

    • Dear Carmen,

      I am sorry for all that you are going through!

      I encourage you to read this article carefully and learn about the natural therapies discussed as you plan how to best move forward Take time to also read Meg’s Success Story… I am may give you hope!

    I’m so glad you mention Maya Abdomiinal Therapy as a means for helping. When the uterus is tilted it can block the fallopian tubes and either prevent pregnancy or cause an ectopic pregnancy (which can be life threatening). You wouldn’t think a 4 oz uterus (8oz before your period starts) could cause so much damage… MAT work is powerful… it allows for the return of homeostasis and hemodynamics (balance and flow of blood, lymph, energy, and nerve flow- all of which nourish the womb and support fertility and reproductive health. Thanks for helping share this “outside-the-box-but-commonsense” approach.

    I have one blocked tube and have been doing acupuncture and herbal therapy. I have one child, a 2 year old son, and believe the blockage is due to scar tissue from the C-section I had. I saw a fertility specialist who mentioned options of laparoscopy and IUI. I know I can get pregnant so am a bit hesitant to move forward with either procedure, but we’ve been trying now for almost a year now. The blockage appears to be close to the uterus. I recently bought Serrapeptase, but have not tried it yet. Any advice if this is a good enzyme to use as natural treatment? I assume it’s okay to take with the herbal therapy I’m doing as well. I would appreciate any advice.

    Thank you!

    • Hello Allison!

      Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme used for a variety of health concerns and at this time we don’t have information about this enzyme. We support Systemic Enzyme Therapy using Wobenzym N. Consider checking out that link!

      It is going to be best to speak with the healthcare practitioner you are working with to discuss adding Serrapeptase to your program. In general systemic enzymes can be combined with Western herbs.

    • Dear Pranita,

      I am sorry you are having to deal with such a challenging fertility health issue! I hope that the guidance offered in this article gives you a clear idea of how to consider supporting normal fallopian tube health, whether medically, naturally or a combination of both.

      The effectiveness of natural therapies alone will depend on the location and/or severity of the blockage, in addition to what has led to, or is contributing to the blockage. Consider asking your healthcare provider if he can help you understand these factors from your laparohysteroscopy as you contemplate the best plan for you.

    So madam, Just suggest me that:

    1) if i should go for laproscopy in this age group keeping in mind that both of us also take blood pressure medicine as well to get it maintain which rises upto 160-100.

    2) Did not find this article about Distal Tubal Occlusions which you suggested me to read and discuss with my healthcare provider, can u pinpoint link for it plz.

    3) As my uterus and eggs are fine so want to know either medically assisted fertility is also painful in any sense. I mean it require surgeries etc. or ??

    Thanks for all of your helps and patience,

    • Hello Maira!

      I am glad you have asked more questions.

      1) I can not know this. This would be a better questions asked of your healthcare provider.

      2) My apologies under the heading, Causes of Blocked Fallopian Tubes, there is a discussion of what distal tubal occlusion is. There is no link, you’ll just have to scroll through the article.

      3) Regarding medically-assisted fertility procedures, your questions are better asked of your healthcare provider. While I have not heard of procedures like IUI or IVF requiring “surgery”, there is medication to take and medical intervention. It may help, after speaking with your healthcare provider, to do some research about what is involved in the treatments he suggests.

      I hope this too is helpful!

    Dear Madam,

    I am 42 and have been married for 10 years. I was first pregnant after 2 years of marriage, but was operated on due to a tubal pregnancy. In our 10th year, a senior doctor advised me to have an X-RAY, H.S.G, from which the results show:

    —Right fallopian tube out lined showing dilated distal segment—-hydrosalpynx.
    —Left fallopian tube partly out line.
    —No spillage of contrast from both sides indicating bilateral tubal blockage.

    I Wonder if there is any cure for me? I Need your kind advise on it and also want to know if we can/should go for the test tube baby in this case?

    Many thanks,
    Maira B

    • Dear Maira,

      I am so sorry to hear you have had to learn this and are faced with challenge.

      I wish I could offer a concrete answer for you, but I can not know if natural therapies will work alone. The effectiveness of natural therapies depends on the location and/or severity of the blockage, in addition to what has led to, or is contributing to the blockage, and even how long your tubes have been effected. It is going to be best to consider asking your healthcare provider if he can help you understand these factors, specifically for your left tube, as you contemplate the best plan for your fertility health needs.

      Consider rereading the section in this article about Distal Tubal Occlusions and sharing this article with your healthcare provider if you wish and are interested in trying anything suggested here. Whether you try medically-assisted fertility treatments is entirely up to you and your partner. If your eggs and uterus is healthy, there may be a chance and successful pregnancy via these means. Your healthcare provider can best guide you in this regard.

      All the best to you!

    I am 34 years old. I have been trying to get pregnant for the last 8 years. I have been treated for PID, Endometriosis, cysts and hormonal imbalance. I still feel pain while going for a short or long call during my menstrual cycle. Lower back pains, abdominal pains, and clots in my menstrual. Last year August I went for an HSG and the Doc told me that after the procedure my tubes will open. Up to to now no success yet and I still have the above symptoms. Please help me am desperate and I don’t want to go for surgery its too expensive. I have visited the gynecologist today and he told me there is no hope of getting pregnant. I am a Kenyan lady. My husband’s sperm count is good.

    • Dear Catherine,

      I am sorry you have been faced with this challenge! With blocked fallopian tubes an egg will not be able to travel to be fertilized and conception can not happen. The only way to know if the result of the HSG procedure did in fact open you fallopian tubes (which I personally have not heard of before) is to be tested again. The effectiveness of herbs and natural therapies in supporting healthy, properly functioning fallopian tubes will depend on the cause, location and severity of the blockage. Herbs and natural therapies may not be all that is needed to support normal fallopian tube health.

      I can not know how well your body will respond to surgery, any treatment or a natural fertility program in order to know if you will be able to conceive naturally. The delicate nature and small size of the fallopian tubes can make them hard to support and heal.

      Given all that you have dealt with and are dealing with in terms of your fertility health, the very best way we can help you understand the most supportive herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies for your fertility health needs is through a Fertility Consultation. This provides you with the opportunity to work one on one with our fertility herbalist who will create a personalized natural fertility program for you.

    Blood, Urine, Harmone test result: perfectly normal
    Sonogram test: Perfectly normal
    Semen test: perfectly normal
    HSG test: right fallopian tube is fully functional and healthy. LEFT FALLOPIAN tube appears to be blocked
    1) Even though my right fallopian tube is completely normal iam not getting pregnant -Should i take fertility cleanse with egg health kit OR just Fertility cleanse+multivitamins are suff.
    2)Since i have only one fallopian tube normal do you suggest me to use- Feritlity cleanse +
    fallopianwise kit
    I will strictly follow your suggestions, Please give your best opinion as per my details

    • Dear Neha,

      With one, the right, fallopian tube that is fully functional and healthy, there may be a chance for natural conception each cycle you ovulate from your right ovary. Are you charting your basal body temperature, BBT, or using any ovulation tracking tools to know exactly when you ovulate each cycle? Consider learning more through our Guide to Fertility Charting so that you can connect with your body and learn your fertile window each cycle (the days you can conceive).

      We feel the Fertility Cleanse a foundational step when naturally supporting fertility health. It supports detoxification of the liver and uterus, as well as their healthy function. It is considered a first step after which a number of other natural therapies can be considered.

      We are happy to offer you a personalized natural fertility program to follow and we do this through a Fertility Consultation. Learn more about a Fertility Consultation here…

    I have a right tubal blockage and left hydrosalpinx with perifimbrial adhesions. What drug will I use? I have been married for 3 yrs and not pregnant. I need twins.

  23. Avatar

    I am 27 years old and had an abortion last year. I’ve been TTC for a year now without success. My uterus shape and size are fine. I did Hysterosalpingogram and the results reads:
    – The left fallopian tube is normal in calibre and course with free peritoneal contrast spillage at its fimbrial end
    – the demonstrated isthmus of the right fallopian tube is coiled and ends blindly with no contrast spillage

    My doctor suggested an operation to open the right tube. However, I don’t feel comfortable as he didn’t give enough explanation about the reasons of the blockage, or alternatives methods.

    I would like to know my options of getting pregnant & natural ways to open the right tube.

    • Dear Sally,

      It may be that your doctor does not know how or why your right fallopian tube became impaired. There can be any number of reasons as you have already read in this article.

      By “coiled” does this mean twisted? There is no way for me to know if herbs, nutritional supplements and natural therapies will “uncoil or untwist” a fallopian tube. Given the size and location of the fallopian tubes and if your right tube is physically twisted there may not be an effective natural therapy. The suggestions made in this article could be considered however if you proceed with surgery to uncoil the tube and then wish to naturally support the health and function or the fallopian tube.

      Best wishes!

    I was pregnant, but it was an ectopic pregnancy and I lost my left tube. Will I be able to conceive again with 1 tube?

    • Dear Peace,

      I am so very sorry this has been your experience. How are you doing?

      Each woman ovulates from one ovary one cycle and the other the next. Ovulation is a process that alternates from side to side. There may be a possibility for conception during cycles in which you ovulate from the ovary on the right side if the right tube is healthy and properly functioning.

      The article titled Healing From Ectopic Pregnancy written by our senior herbalist may offer you additional insight and guidance for naturally supporting fallopian tube health.

    Hello! I am 40 yrs old. I have never been pregnant and I am actively attempting to get pregnant at this time. I was diagnosed with PCOS back in 2004 which has since not been detected. I also had an HSG done back in 2004 which determined that I had blockage in both tubes. Had a 2nd HSG done in 2011 and I believe they were still blocked, but it was not as severe as years prior since I’ve loss a lot of weight. I have been doing a lot of research and have started doing the castor oil pack therapy. I’ve done 3 sessions so far. I have read that I should continue doing it for 8-12 wks and the possibility of becoming pregnant is very high. Can you give me any advice please?

    Hello I have had a tubal ligation and reversal, my tubes were then both open, a year later I then became pregnant with an ectopic pregnancy, and lost one of my tubes. Then found out with a blue dye sonogram that my one tube I have left is now blocked. What would you suggest? I do not want to do IVF, I really would like to unblock this one tube, I think I have scar tissue. Any suggestions?

    • Hello J. Morales!

      I am sorry you have been through this!

      Each of the Natural Therapies for Fallopian Tube Health covered in this article are worth considering. The natural therapies discussed have been found to aid the body’s natural ability to break down fibrin (tissue that makes up a scar), support the body’s natural inflammation response and normal immune response in the reproductive system, encourage circulation to the reproductive organs and promote the body’s natural ability to cleanse the reproductive system.

      If you are not certain after reviewing the information again, we would be happy to help you create a natural fertility program designed around your fertility health and fallopian tube health needs. We offer this through a Fertility Consultation.

    Finding- Hemoperitonium found, left tube identified tried for salpingostomy but due to unhealthy tube with twisting could not possible, salpingectomy done, right tube looks healthy.
    what is she mean that my right tube is healthy? is that mean that
    i can still concieve naturally? because all i knew is that my right tube was blocked according to HSG last june 5… i am so confused anf worried kept on thinking about what happened… help me please

    • Dear Tinz,

      Thank you for sharing more information and I am sorry you are worried!

      I would ask you healthcare provider about what she means by these reports. Have her explain them to you so you understand. Ask her is the right tube is still blocked. If not, then you may have a chance to naturally conceive during the months you ovulate from the right ovary. There are many tools to help you know when you ovulate each cycle. Our Guide to Fertility Charting will explain them to you.

      Salpingostomy means an attempt was made to create an opening in the fallopian tube, but with the left tube this doesn’t appear to have been possible so it was removed (Salpingectomy).

      I hope this is helpful and that you are able to speak with your healthcare provider!

    Hey! I have never given birth and not had sex yet, but I went for a check-up and results came out that my fallopian tubes are mildly abnormal and that my periods are not normal since they contain particles in blood. Is it really abnormal?

    • Dear Becky,

      I am sorry you have received these results. Have you been able to ask your healthcare provider about what specifically these results mean.

      I can not begin to define what “abnormal” means in terms of your fallopian tubes, or what is meant by “particles”. Did they mean clots of bits of tissue that are seen during your period? If so, clots can be a result of dehydration and are traditionally seen as a sign of stagnation created from excessive menstrual flow that is not being expelled as it should be during a period. There may be herbs and natural therapies beneficial for increasing uterine tone that you can learn about here…

    Hello, I am 39 years and had tubal ligation 9 years ago. Circumstances have changed and I truly want more children. I have normal mense monthly and have been applying castor oil by rubbing it on my abdomen every evening and morning with few massages. So far I feel no pain or discomfort but i am desperate to have a baby again as a normal pregnancy. How long can I wait or apply castor oil to have another pregnancy?

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH


      Castor Oil Therapy can be used 4-6 times a week between menstruation and ovulation when actively trying to conceive and from menstruation through the rest of the cycle when not actively trying to conceive.

      Castor Oil Therapy however will not alone reverse tubal ligation, nor will any herb or nutritional supplement. Tubal ligation reversal has to be done medically by your healthcare provider after which there may be natural therapies to support fallopian tube health.

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.

    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.

      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!

      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…

    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.

    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!

    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

    • Elizabeth Willett, MA, CH

      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.

    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.

  45. 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.
