QuickView Treatment Plan

Anatomical & Blocked Tubes

Our QuickView blocked tubes treatment plan is an easy way for our patients to understand the treatment process

Each QuickView follows a given infertility diagnosis, then outlines the tests normally performed, the possible results and the treatments for each result. While the sequence may not be followed exactly for every patient, it will give you an approximate plan of what may happen. Our QuickView anatomic abnormalities and blocked tubes treatment plan outlines the path our Louisiana fertility doctor will likely take in determining the possible cause of your infertility.

For suspected blocked tubes or anatomical problems with your uterus or tubes, all treatment plans typically start with some form of physical exam that allows our fertility specialists to determine if a part of your anatomy is abnormal or blocked due to scar tissue. A hysterosalpingogram, HSG, is one test that shows any blockage in your fallopian tubes. Depending on the results, our fertility specialists will be able to prescribe treatment using surgery to correct the problem (i.e., open up your tubes, remove adhesions from the uterus, or correct an anatomical issue), or recommend in vitro fertilization that bypasses the tubes.

Whether your problem is with blocked tubes or another anatomical issue, our reproductive endocrinologists will take active steps to boost your chances of bringing home a baby.
