A fertilised egg remains in the tube for several days and then passes to the uterus where it implants.

Blocked or diseased fallopian tubes can cause infertility. Infection or scarring in the area can sometimes be treated using minimally invasive (laparoscopic) surgical techniques. Other tests your consultant may use are:

  • Ultrasound
  • Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) – an x-ray of your uterus and fallopian tubes. This investigation assesses the quality of your fallopian tubes; indicating how easily eggs can pass from your fallopian tubes to the uterus.

Our experienced consultant gynaecologists can diagnose and treat fallopian tube disorders.

In cases where the tubes remain blocked our expert Assisted Conception teams can help you start a family.
