Normally, a woman has 2 sets of fallopian tubes on each side of her uterus that connects to the ovaries. During ovulation, the mature egg will travel along these hollow tubes towards the uterus.
During sexual intercourse, the sperm will travel up the uterus into the fallopian tube, and this is where fertilisation usually takes place.
The fertilised egg, will continue to develop into an embryo and travel from the fallopian tube to the uterus and implants itself the lining of the uterus where pregnancy will occur.
How Does the Fallopian Tubes Get Blocked (Occluded) ?
Fallopian tubes can get blocked due to medical reasons such as endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy, hydrosalpinx (tubes filled with fluids), previous abdominal surgeries or any form of infection (STD, pelvic inflammatory diseases) etc.
There are also mechanical reason for the blockages such as twisted, impeded or “squashed” by other organs and structures. They can also be blocked by adhesion, scar tissues, dead cells and stagnant blood etc.
The fallopian tube can be permanently damaged due to diseases but in many cases, the fallopian tube blockages can be reversible and cleared completely.
Can I Get Pregnant if My Fallopian Tube is Blocked?
With one blocked fallopian tube, you can still get pregnant naturally. However your chances of chances of conception has been reduced to 50% since only 1 of 2 of your fallopian tubes is clear and functioning properly.
Unfortunately, with both blocked fallopian tubes, natural pregnancy is unlikely to occur because there is zero chance of the sperm meeting the egg. The blockage prevents the natural route of the egg to meet the sperm for fertilization, and reaching the uterus. But once the blockages is cleared, even if only one side is cleared, you will still be able to get pregnant naturally.

The good news is, in many cases blocked fallopian tube is not permanent and can be reversed. If your fallopian tubes are not permanently damaged or removed, your doctor may suggest for surgery to clear the blockages if you still want to try for a natural pregnancy.
To date, womb massage is the only the available non invasive technique to successfully clear blocked fallopian tubes. Studies have shown that massage can be effective in clearing fallopian tubes by breaking down the adhesions (or scar tissue).
