Traditionally Fallopian tubal surgery (tuboplasty) was used to restore patency to the tubes and thus possibly normal function. However, in most situations today, in vitro fertilization is used to overcome tubal infertility as it is more cost-effective, less invasive, and results are immediate. With IVF, after stimulation of ovarian follicles, egg cells are removed via a sonographic directed vaginal puncture into the ovary, these eggs are fertiized outside the body, and the resultant embryo placed transcervically into the uterus; - the tubes are bypassed in this process.
so if getting pregnant is your main goal, I would say this is a pretty decent option for you.
hope it helps

Yours might be a case of pelvic inflammatory disease(PID),there are various causes for PID(TB,other bacterial and Viral infections).PID is very commonly known to cause fallopian tube blockade/infertility by scarring of the tube,adhesions,etc.So only treatment modality is Surgery to release adhesions and keep tube patent inorder to give you a chance to be pregnant.No other medical treatment or conservative treatment can help your cause.Please go by what your doctor says.Also invitro fertilization option exist.
