Hydrosalpinx and Infertility
What is a hydrosalpinx?
Though it sounds like an exotic Egyptian relic, a hydrosalpinx is a swollen and blocked fallopian tube. Because the end of the fallopian tube is closed off by scar tissue, fluid abnormally collects, causing further swelling and dilation of the fallopian tube.
Hydrosalpinges usually occur as a result of previous pelvic infection.
