Infertility can be caused by blockages of the fallopian tubes – delicate structures that connect the ovaries to the uterine cavity. There are many causes for blockage of the fallopian tubes and pelvic infection is one of them, however fibroids or prior surgery can also be mentioned. Fertility doctors usually recommend in vitro fertilization if the tubes are blocked, in order to bypass the tubes to become pregnant. Ligation of the tubes to prepare for IVF pregnancy is a recommended procedure which can be complex and should always be performed by a trained surgical specialist.
