What Herbs to Use for Blocked Fallopian Tubes

The Fallopian tubes are two narrow tubes that connect your ovaries and uterus, and are the sites where an egg becomes fertilized. If your tubes are blocked, you may experience infertility. Pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID, due to a bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic infection, is a common cause of Fallopian-tube blockage. Herbs may relieve the infection and help unblock your tubes. Check with your health-care provider for a diagnosis before starting herbal treatment.

Herbal Actions

Herbs for blocked Fallopian tubes work in several ways. Antimicrobial and immune-enhancing herbs can stimulate your immune system to fight PID caused by chlamydia or streptococcal, staphylococcal bacteria or E. coli bacteria. Anti-inflammatory herbs can reduce the pain and inflammation. Check with a knowledgeable practitioner for advice about dosage and preparation of herbs for blocked Fallopian tubes.
