The fallopian tube is the path of sperm and the place where sperm and egg combine. If the fallopian tube is narrow, locked, deformed, or not healthy peristalsis caused by adhesion of various reasons, hormone disorder, etc., sperm and egg can not meet or transport smoothly. It will cause infertility or ectopic pregnancy.

Where does "fluid" come from (it has two sources ):

1. Adhesion of isthmus and fimbria caused by inflammation of the fallopian tube. After blocking, it is easy to form pyometra of the fallopian tube and enlarge the lumen of the fallopian tube. When the purulent cells and necrotic tissues in the lumen are decomposed and cleared by phagocytes, they finally become water-like liquid.

2. After the two ends of the lumen are blocked by adhesion, the secretion of mucous membrane cells accumulates in the lumen, and the more it collects, the result is that a large amount of water sample exists in the lumen, forming hydrosalpinx.

What harm does hydrosalpinx have?

Hydrosalpinx can flow into the uterine cavity reversely, causing hydros and interfere with the contact between embryo and endometrium. Hydrosalpinx may increase during ovulation, and the amount of fluid flowing into the uterine cavity will increase, causing adverse effects on the uterine cavity.

At the same time, hydrosalpinx contains microorganisms, debris, and toxic substances that can directly enter the uterine cavity. The presence of hydrosalpinx can release cytokines, prostaglandins, leukocyte chemokines, and other inflammatory compounds, which directly or through the blood and lymphatics transport and act on the inner membrane of the uterus.

The substances are involved in regulating the movement of the fallopian tube and uterus. They also affect the receptivity of the endometrium. Moreover, they can affect embryo implantation and development in many ways, thus reducing pregnancy rate.

How to diagnose hydrosalpinx?

Generally, there are three methods to examine the disease. The most commonly used one is hysterosalpingography, which is also the most reliable and straightforward method.

Operation process: Place a catheter in the uterine cavity, and inject contrast agent from the opening, make it enter the uterine cavity and fallopian tube. Then according to the contrast agent displaying the shape of the uterus and fallopian tube to judge whether the fallopian tube is hydrous and blocked, and determine the position of hydrous and blocked.

Advantages: The diameter and shape of the fallopian tube can be observed more directly through X-ray film to judge the degree of hydrosalpinx.

Warm tips:
