Fallopian Tube Blockage & TCM
Blockages of the fallopian tubes such as those due to infection, inflammation, retention of post-pregnancy product, tube spasms and/or stiffness of the tube walls, can be successfully treated with acupuncture and TCM, though it depends on the severity of the damage it has caused (see Pelvic Inflammatory Disease).
However, there may also be blockage in respect of Blood and Qi stagnation caused by emotional stress, or internal Cold for example. These are TCM conditions unrecognised by western medicine, but what inhibit the smooth movement of the embryo to the uterus.
In cases of more severe structural damage to the tubes, acupuncture and TCM can do little to treat this; in most cases, IVF treatment is the best option here which we can help and support.
