How Does Tubal Blockage Affect Fertility?
Tubal blockage is one of the common reasons for female infertility. Fallopian tubes function is essential to travel egg from ovaries to the uterus where fertilization occurs. Every month, an egg is released from the ovaries, during ovulation through fallopian tubes to the uterus. Also, the sperm travels to the uterus or female body through fallopian tubes.
When the tube is blocked, it obstructs the travel of egg and sperm in uterus, hence infertility occurs.
