Can c-section cause tubal blockage and prevent subsequent pregnancy?

default
Posted on Fri, 3 Aug 2018
Question: Is it possible to get a fallopian tube blockage after c-section (first one, uncomplicated, good looking scar, normal trans-vaginal ultrasound)?

Or any other adhesions that could prevent a subsequent pregnancy (secondary infertility).

Thank you,.

Brief Answer:
TUBAL BLOCK HAS TO BE CONFIRMED

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
Very unlikely that caesarian section can cause tubal blockage .Usual causes are pelvic inflammatory disease.
TUBAL blockage can be confirmed by hystero salpingo graphy where in a radio opaque XXXXXXX is injected through cervix and an x-ray is taken.Saline salpingo graphy can also be tried which doesn't need xray.
HOPE MY ANSWER HELPS YOU.
