Both Tubes Are Blocked But Now I Am Pregnant! Whats Going On?

Both Tubes Blocked? But Now Pregnant?

Dr Monteith

I had HCG and Progesterone draw today at 4 weeks 1 day. HCG right at 13, progesterone at 9-10. I am already taking suppositories.

I will check again in 48 hours as they think numbers are low. Also, I had a HSG test 3 weeks ago and showed both tubes blocked, so watching for possible ectopic.

Patient age: 33
Tubal ligation type: Resection (tied or cut)
Patient hometown: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

How Can You get Pregnant With Blocked Tubes?

If your tubes are really blocked…then technically you cant become pregnant…at least naturally. If the tubes are really blocked then the sperm will never find the egg and fertilization will not occur.

Most tubes are not blocked after tubal reversal surgery. Most tubes are open and most patients will become pregnant.

More information: HSG said both tubes were blocked: Wrong!

Dr. Monteith estimates the chance of tubes healing closed from blocked scar tissue is approximately 10%. This happens gradually over several months. The best way to know your tubes are open is to become pregnant. Dr. Monteith recommends if patients dont become pregnant within 12 months of reversal surgery then they should obtain a HSG test to see if their tubes are open.

Unfortunately HSG tests are often wrong. Many times the dye will not enter the tube from tubal spasm and the doctor will say their tubes are blocked….when in fact they really are open. Many times patients will have a HSG. Dye will not enter either tube and the doctor will say their tubes are blocked. Many of these patients will go on to have a pregnancy and then be amazed they became pregnant with blocked tubes.

The reality is the tubes were never blocked in the first place… it just took these ladies a little longer to become pregnant.
