Salpingitis and blocked fallopian tubes are related conditions that affect the fallopian tubes in women. Read on to learn more about the differences between these two ailments.

All About Salpingitis:

Salpingitis is an inflammation and infection of the fallopian tubes, usually caused by bacterial infections from the lower genital tract (e.g., untreated sexually transmitted diseases).


Salpingitis Symptoms

Symptoms may include pelvic pain, fever, abnormal vaginal discharge, and pain during intercourse. Complications can consist of a tubo-ovarian abscess in about 15% of cases, which may require hospitalization, and an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy due to blocked fallopian tubes.


Salpingitis Treatment

Treatment options include antibiotics, hospitalization for severe cases requiring intravenous antibiotic administration, surgery if drug treatment isn’t effective, hysterosalpingogram (HSG) to identify blockages in the fallopian tubes, and diagnostic laparoscopy to visualize the reproductive organs.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes Treatment:

– Fertility Treatments: In vitro fertilization (IVF) can bypass blocked tubes if pregnancy is desired

– Surgery: Surgical removal of blockages if feasible

– Hormonal Therapy: In some cases, hormonal therapy can reduce inflammation in the fallopian tubes

– Hydrosalpinx: If fluid-filled blockages (hydrosalpinx) are present, draining and repairing or removing the tubes (salpingectomy) may be necessary

Remember to seek medical advice for personalized treatment. Consult a healthcare professional to discuss your specific situation.
