IVF Treatment and Tubal Infertility: Diagnosis and Treatment Options at IVF Centers in Jaipur
IVF, or In Vitro Fertilisation, is a medical procedure which deals with infertility issues in women and men.
Tubal infertility is a condition in which the fallopian tube (the duct which connects ovaries to the uterus) gets blocked or damaged in some way which prevents the sperm from reaching the egg for fertilisation or prevents a fertilised egg (an embryo) from reaching the uterus. The problem of infertility is growing daily in every part of the world, affecting nearly 27.5 million men and women, according to Indiatime report.. Women cannot conceive, and the main reason is the blockage of fallopian tubes or immature eggs in the ovaries.

What is Tubal Infertility?
Around 30% of infertility problems are caused by a tubal blockage. The fallopian tube serves various purposes, such as the transfer of eggs, fertilisation, embryo transfer etc. Therefore, a hindrance in its path can cause multiple difficulties.
There are various types of tubal infertility, and out of those, the most common cause of tubal blockage is the presence of a fibroid. A fibroid is a non-cancerous tumour of the tissue of the tube’s walls.
It is also often caused by endometriosis (a disease in which some of the uterine lining tissue has spread elsewhere – such as to the ovaries or in the abdominal cavity.), pelvic infection or sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhoea or damage to the tube.
Usually, tubal infertility does not show symptoms initially, but some women experience severe pelvic pain. The procedures followed to confirm the presence of tubal infertility or diagnosis include:
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgery in which the doctor inserts a thin tube with a camera into the body through a small incision. The camera transmits images of the inside of the body to a monitor, which the doctor can then view and diagnose the problem. It is a relatively safe procedure and is performed under the supervision of a specialist.
Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray examination performed by a radiologist. This procedure inserts a thin catheter into the uterus through the cervix. The doctor fills the catheter with a contrast dye, and then a series of X-rays are taken to see the ovaries and the tube. This helps in checking the condition of the tube. Even if the fallopian tubes are found open by this “plumbing” test, it does not accurately indicates the normal functioning. There may be deep scarring in the walls of the tube, leading to infertility.

During this treatment, the male (intended parent or donor parent) provides semen from which a single sperm is injected into the matured egg. This is generally performed along with the IVF procedure. There is an enhanced fertility rate in this type of treatment as it helps to shoot up the number of fertilised eggs present to us, which helps achieve a high success rate of conception.
