92 Battalion commanding officer kidnapped by Terrorist in Taraba state.

It was learnt that the Commanding Officer of the 92 Battalion of the Nigerian Army was allegedly kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

Six soldiers and one mobile police personnel were also confirmed to have been killed in the incident that occurred on Tuesday at Takum Local Government Area of the state.

Confirming the incident to our state correspondent via telephone, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abdullahi Usman, said the commanding officer was “missing” in a joint operation that was carried out by the joint forces.

Apart from the “missing” commandant, six soldiers and one mobile police personnel, as made known by him, were killed by the terrorists.

Also confirming the report, the council chairman, Tikari Shiban, said “we are on top of the situation” adding that “soldiers are in the bush searching everywhere for the commander.

Though he could not give the exact numbers of casualties figures, he admitted that some soldiers and policemen were also killed.

The bandits were said to have ambushed the joint forces on their way to a joint operation in a nearby village in the council.

Some residents of the council told our correspondent that no resident of the community is safe.

If a whole Commanding Officer of a Battalion can be whisked away by bandits, that is to tell you that no one is safe in this our local government council,” one of them said.

Since the news of fleeing bandits from the neighbouring states of Borno and Yobe, as well as from the Northwestern part of the country, emerged, the residents have been worried.

A bomb blast, it would be recalled, was again recorded in Jalingo, the state capital on Tuesday night.

Though no casualties were reported, the situation has further plunged the people into palpable fears and confusion.

Compulsive sexual behavior is sometimes called hypersexuality.

Overview

Compulsive sexual behavior is sometimes called hypersexuality, hypersexuality disorder or sexual addiction. It’s an excessive preoccupation with sexual fantasies, urges or behaviors that is difficult to control, causes you distress, or negatively affects your health, job, relationships or other parts of your life.

It may involve a variety of commonly enjoyable sexual experiences. Examples include masturbation, cybersex, multiple sexual partners, and use of pornography or paying for sex. When these sexual behaviors become a major focus in your life, are difficult to control, and are disruptive or harmful to you or others, they may be considered compulsive sexual behavior.

No matter what it’s called or the exact nature of the behavior, untreated hypersexuality disorder can damage your self-esteem, relationships, career, health and other people. But with treatment and self-help, you can learn to manage compulsive sexual behavior.

Causes

Although the causes of hypersexuality disorder are unclear, they may include:

An imbalance of natural brain chemicals. Certain chemicals in your brain (neurotransmitters) such as serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine help regulate your mood. High levels may be related to compulsive sexual behavior.

Changes in brain pathways. It may be an addiction that, over time, might cause changes in the brain’s neural circuits, especially in the reinforcement centers of the brain. Like other addictions, more-intensive sexual content and stimulation are typically required over time in order to gain satisfaction or relief.

Conditions that affect the brain. Certain diseases or health problems, such as epilepsy and dementia, may cause damage to parts of the brain that affect sexual behavior. In addition, treatment of Parkinson’s disease with some dopamine agonist medications may cause hypersexuality disorder.

Risk factors

Compulsive sexual behavior can occur in both men and women, though it may be more common in men. It can also affect anyone, regardless of sexual orientation. Factors that may increase risk of compulsive sexual behavior include:

Ease of access to sexual content. Advances in technology and social media allow access to increasingly intensive sexual imagery and information.

Secrecy and privacy of compulsive sexual activities tend to allow these problems to worsen over time.

Also, an increased risk of it may occur in people who have:

Alcohol or drug abuse problems

Another mental health condition, such as a mood disorder (such as depression or anxiety), or a gambling addiction

Family conflicts or family members with problems such as addiction

A history of physical or sexual abuse

Symptoms

How do you know if what you – or someone you love – is struggling with compulsive sexual behavior? While they vary in severity as well as type, here are some common symptoms:

Escape – Using compulsive sexual behavior as an escape from problems such as anxiety, stress, loneliness, or depression

Difficulty with closeness – An inability or difficulty establishing or maintaining closeness in a relationship – even if you are married or otherwise committed to a partner

Continued sexual behavior despite consequences – Continuing to engage in risky sexual behaviors despite serious negative consequences, such as losing a job, trouble at work, legal problems, jeopardizing an important relationship, the potential to give someone a sexually transmitted disease

No satisfaction in the behavior – Continuing the sexual behavior that you feel driven to do despite the fact that you derive no satisfaction from the activity

Loss of control – Sexual thoughts and impulses intensify to the point where you feel you no longer have any control

Complications

Compulsive sexual behavior can have many negative consequences that affect both you and others. You may:

Struggle with feelings of guilt, shame and low self-esteem

Develop other mental health conditions, such as depression, suicide, severe distress and anxiety

Neglect or lie to your partner and family, harming or destroying meaningful relationships

Lose your focus or engage in sexual activity or search internet pornography at work, risking your job

Accumulate financial debts buying pornography and sexual services

Contract HIV, hepatitis or another sexually transmitted infection or pass a sexually transmitted infection to someone else

Engage in unhealthy substance use, such as using recreational drugs or drinking excessive alcohol

Be arrested for sexual offenses

Diagnosis of compulsive sexual behavior

Your doctor or other mental health professional can do a psychological evaluation, which may involve answering questions about your:

Physical and mental health, as well as your overall emotional well-being

Sexual thoughts, behaviors and compulsions that are hard to control

Use of recreational drugs and alcohol

Family, relationships and social situation

Problems caused by your sexual behavior

With your permission, your mental health professional may also request input from family and friends.

Determining a diagnosis

There’s an ongoing debate in the psychiatric community about exactly how to define compulsive sexual behavior because it’s not always easy to determine when sexual behavior becomes problematic.

Many mental health professionals use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association, as a guide for diagnosing mental health problems. Because compulsive sexual behavior doesn’t have its own diagnostic category in the DSM-5, it may be diagnosed as a subcategory of another mental health condition, such as an impulse control disorder or a behavioral addiction.

Some mental health professionals consider compulsive sexual behaviors as sexual activities taken to an extreme with significant and negative consequences. Although more research is needed to clarify and classify all the criteria, diagnosis and treatment by a mental health professional who has expertise in addictions and compulsive sexual behaviors will likely yield the best results.

Treatment for Compulsive Sexual Behavior

Treatment for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder usually involves medications, psychotherapy and self-assist groups. The main goal of medication for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder is to assist you control desires and lessen excessive performances while upholding healthy sexual activities.

Psychotherapy

Certain types of psychotherapy, moreover called talk treatment, may assist you study how to control your hypersexual disorder. These comprise of:

Psychodynamic psychotherapy for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder focuses on intensifies your knowledge of unconscious feelings and behaviors, increasing new impending into your inspirations, and resolving conflicts.

Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder helps you recognize unhealthy, pessimistic beliefs and performances and restore them with strong, positive ones.

Medicines of compulsive sexual behavior

Medicines to treat hypersexual disorder is frequently prescribed mainly for other illnesses like depression, OCD or anxiety. They include:

Antidepressants. These are SSRIs – selective serotonin & reuptake inhibitors. These comprise of paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), fluoxetine (Prozac) and others.

Mood stabilizers. These treatments are normally used to treat bipolar disorder, previously named manic depression, however may reduce wild sexual desires. E.g. lithium (Lithobid).

Naltrexone for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder is a naltrexone (Vivitrol, Revia) is normally used to doctor alcoholism plus obstruct the section of your brain which feels enjoyment with certain compulsive behaviors.

Anti-androgens for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder help in decreasing the natural consequences of sex hormones (or androgens) in men.

Luteinizing hormone or releasing hormone for compulsive sexual behavior or hypersexual disorder is a treatment which reduces compulsive sexual feelings by reducing the development of testosterone in men.

Self-Help Groups

Support groups or self-help groups could be beneficial for individuals with hypersexual disorder and in favor of handling with all the problems it can trigger. Many groups are formed following a 12-step plan of AA or Alcoholics Anonymous.

Additionally to assisting you make transforms exactly; these special aid units can help you:

Discover about your disorder.

Find assist and accepting of your condition.

Identify supplementary treatment options and materials.

These self-help groups possibly will be based on Internet or comprise in local person get-togethers, or both.

Prevention of compulsive sexual behavior

Because the cause isn’t known, it’s not clear how it might be prevented, but a few things may help keep this type of behavior in check:

Get help early for problems with sexual behavior. Identifying and treating early symptoms may help prevent compulsive sexual behavior from getting worse over time or escalating into a downward spiral of shame, relationship problems and harmful acts.

Seek treatment early for mental health disorders. Compulsive sexual behavior may be worsened by depression or anxiety.

Identify and seek help for alcohol and drug abuse problems. Substance abuse can cause a loss of control and unhappiness that can lead to poor judgment and may push you toward unhealthy sexual behaviors.

Avoid risky situations. Don’t jeopardize your health or that of others by putting yourself into situations where you’ll be tempted to engage in risky sexual practices.

Ectopic pregnancy (Ectopic means out of place) is when an embryo grows in the wrong place outside the womb.

Definition

Ectopic pregnancy (Ectopic means “out of place”) is when an embryo grows in the wrong place outside the womb. An embryo is a fertilized egg that results when an egg and sperm combine.

Once an egg is fertilized, it usually travels down a fallopian tube and attaches to the lining of your uterus (also called the womb). Fallopian tubes are the tubes between your ovaries (where your eggs are stored) and the uterus. The uterus is the place inside you where your baby grows.

In most ectopic pregnancies, the fertilized egg attaches to a fallopian tube before it reaches the uterus. Less often, it attaches to an ovary, the cervix or your abdomen (belly). The cervix is the opening to the uterus that sits at the top of the vagina. These areas don’t have enough space or the right tissue for a baby to grow.

Without treatment, an ectopic pregnancy can cause the place where it’s attached to bleed heavily or burst. This can lead to serious bleeding and even death in pregnant women. An ectopic pregnancy always ends in pregnancy loss. About 1 in 50 pregnancies (2 percent) in the United States is ectopic.

Types of ectopic pregnancy

Tubal pregnancy

A tubal pregnancy occurs when the egg has implanted in the fallopian tube. This is the most common type of ectopic pregnancy and the majority of ectopic pregnancies are tubal pregnancies. The type of tubal pregnancy can be further classified according to where inside the fallopian tube the pregnancy becomes established.

Non-tubal ectopic pregnancy

Nearly two percent of all ectopic pregnancies become established in other areas including the ovary, the cervix or the intra-abdominal region.

Heterotopic pregnancy

In some rare cases, one fertilized egg implants inside the uterus and another implant outside of the structure. The ectopic pregnancy is often discovered before the intrauterine pregnancy, mainly due to the painful nature of ectopic pregnancy. If human chorionic gonadotropin levels continue to rise after the ectopic pregnancy has been removed, the pregnancy inside the womb may still be viable.

Causes 

An ectopic pregnancy is often caused by damage to the fallopian tubes. A fertilized egg may have trouble passing through a damaged tube, causing the egg to implant and grow in the tube.

Things that make you more likely to have fallopian tube damage and an ectopic pregnancy include:

Smoking: The more you smoke, the higher your risk of an ectopic pregnancy.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID): This is often the result of an infection such as chlamydia or gonorrhea.

Endometriosis, which can cause scar tissue in or around the fallopian tubes.

Being exposed to the chemical DES before you were born.

Some medical treatments can increase your risk of ectopic pregnancy. These include:

Surgery on the fallopian tubes or in the pelvic area.

Fertility treatments such as in vitro fertilization.

Symptoms of Ectopic Pregnancy

An ectopic pregnancy doesn’t always cause symptoms and may only be detected during a routine pregnancy scan.

If you do have symptoms, they tend to develop between the 4th and 12th week of pregnancy.

Symptoms can include a combination of:

A missed period and other signs of pregnancy

Tummy pain low down on 1 side

Vaginal bleeding or a brown watery discharge

Pain in the tip of your shoulder

Discomfort when peeing or pooing

But these symptoms aren’t necessarily a sign of a serious problem. They can sometimes be caused by other problems, such as a stomach bug.

Risk Factors

The risk factors include the following:

Previous ectopic pregnancy

Prior fallopian tube surgery

Previous pelvic or abdominal surgery

Certain sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

Pelvic inflammatory disease

Endometriosis

Other factors that may increase a woman’s risk of ectopic pregnancy include

Cigarette smoking

Age older than 35 years

History of infertility

Use of assisted reproductive technology, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF)

About one-half of all women who have an ectopic pregnancy do not have known risk factors. Sexually active women should be alert to changes in their bodies, especially if they experience symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy.

Ectopic pregnancy complications

A complication of ectopic pregnancy is more likely if diagnosis or treatment is delayed, or if the condition is never diagnosed.

Internal bleeding: A woman who has an ectopic pregnancy and does not receive a timely diagnosis or treatment is more likely to experience severe internal bleeding. This can lead to shock and serious outcomes.

Damage to fallopian tubes: Delayed treatment can also result in damage to the fallopian tube, significantly increasing the risk of future ectopic pregnancies.

Depression: This can result from grieving over the loss of the pregnancy and worrying about future pregnancies.

It is important to remember that pregnancy remains possible even if a fallopian tube is removed. If both tubes are removed, in-vitro fertilization (IVF) remains an option if a woman wishes to conceive a child.

Diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy

Most ectopic pregnancies are suspected between 6 and 10 weeks of pregnancy. Sometimes the diagnosis is made quickly. However, if you are in the early stages of pregnancy, it can take longer (a week or more) to make a diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy.

Your diagnosis will be made based on the following:

Consultation and examination

Your doctor will ask about your medical history and symptoms and will examine your abdomen. With your consent, your doctor may also do a vaginal (internal) examination. You should be offered a female chaperone (someone to accompany you) for this. You may also wish to bring someone to support you during your examination.

Urine pregnancy test

If you have not already had a positive pregnancy test, you will be asked for a urine sample so that this can be tested for pregnancy. If the pregnancy test is negative, it is very unlikely that your symptoms are due to an ectopic pregnancy.

Ultrasound scan

A transvaginal scan (where a probe is gently inserted in your vagina) is known to be more accurate in diagnosing an ectopic pregnancy than a scan through the tummy (transabdominal scan). Therefore, you will be offered a transvaginal scan to help identify the exact location of your pregnancy. However, if you are in the early stages of pregnancy, it may be difficult to locate the pregnancy on scanning and you may be offered another scan after a few days.

Blood tests

A test for the level of the pregnancy hormone βhCG (beta-human chorionic gonadotropin) or a test every few days to look for changes in the level of this hormone may help to give a diagnosis. This is usually checked every 48 hours because, with a pregnancy in the uterus, the hormone level rises by 63% every 48 hours (known as the ‘doubling time’) whereas, with ectopic pregnancies, the levels are usually lower and rise more slowly or stay the same.

Laparoscopy

If the diagnosis is still unclear, operation under a general anesthetic called a laparoscopy may be necessary. The doctor uses a small telescope to look at your pelvis by making a tiny cut, usually into the umbilicus (tummy button). This is also called keyhole surgery.

Treatment

Currently, three different treatments available for an ectopic pregnancy.

Your doctor will discuss the most appropriate one for you, however, your doctor may also find it necessary to proceed from one method to another.

Laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery to remove the fertilized egg from fallopian tubes

A telescopic device (the laparoscope) is inserted through a small cut below your navel (belly button). To help identify your organs, carbon dioxide gas is blown into your stomach through a needle.

A couple of small incisions are also made in your lower abdomen to manipulate and if necessary remove the ectopic pregnancy tissue.

The surgery may involve removing your fallopian tube (salpingectomy) or opening your fallopian tube (salpingostomy) to remove the ectopic pregnancy tissue.

Laparotomy to remove the ectopic pregnancy

If the pregnancy is advanced or there has been significantly associated hemorrhaging (bleeding) then your doctor may perform a laparotomy, a type of surgery involving a much larger incision.

Intramuscular injection of the drug methotrexate

A medication called methotrexate is used to dissolve the pregnancy tissue. It is given by injection in the leg or bottom and is suitable for women without pain or those with minimal pain.

This type of treatment was introduced to avoid surgery but needs careful follow-up.

The follow-up requires blood tests after the first week and then once or twice a week until tests show that you are no longer pregnant. The schedule of blood tests will be explained to you by your doctor. The treatment has a 90 percent success rate. If it is not successful, your doctor may have to reconsider medical treatment or surgery.

Recovery after treatment

After laparoscopic surgery or a methotrexate injection, most women recover and are ready to leave the hospital within 24 hours.

After a laparotomy, it is more common to stay in the hospital for 2 to 3 days.

If you had a salpingostomy or methotrexate injection you will need to have regular tests at the hospital to ensure all the pregnancy cells are gone. This usually involves another blood hormone test.

Prevention of Ectopic Pregnancy

There’s no way to prevent an ectopic pregnancy, but here are some ways to decrease your risk:

Limit your number of sexual partners.

Always use a condom during sex to help prevent sexually transmitted infections and reduce your risk of pelvic inflammatory disease.

Don’t smoke. If you do, quit before you try to get pregnant.

What President Buhari told me about Nnamdi Kanu by Dave Umahi.

Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has shared his conversation with President Muhammadu Buhari regarding Biafra agitator, Nnamdi Kanu.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader faces treason charges filed by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

Umahi told State House correspondents in Abuja on Tuesday that a political solution could resolve the matter.

The governor said it was left for South-East leaders to ensure that the out-of-court settlement option works.

Hydrosalpinx or Blocked Fallopian Tubes is the blockage of a woman’s fallopian tube.

Definition

Hydrosalpinx or Blocked Fallopian Tubes is the blockage of a woman’s fallopian tube caused by a fluid buildup and dilation of the tube at its end.

Most often it occurs at the fimbrial end of the tube next to the ovary, but it can also occur at the other end of the tube that attaches to the uterus. The term hydrosalpinx comes from Greek, with hydro meaning water and salpinx meaning tube.

Blocked fallopian tubes are one form of tubal factor infertility. When the fallopian tube is blocked, the cells inside the tube secret fluid that can’t escape, dilating the tube.

This prevents fertilization – and thus pregnancy – by blocking an ovulated egg from moving from the ovary to the fallopian tube for fertilization by the sperm. If an ovulated egg is somehow able to connect with a sperm for fertilization, the hydrosalpinx would still likely block the resulting embryo from traveling to the uterus for implantation and pregnancy.

It can also potentially cause a dangerous ectopic pregnancy, in which the embryo implants outside the uterus, most often inside the fallopian tube, and results in a life-threatening situation.

Types of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

The types of blocked Fallopian tubes are normally categorized depending on the location of the tube affected. They are;

Midsegment tubal obstruction

This occurs in the ampullary and it normally results from tubal ligation damage. Tubal ligation is a surgical procedure to prevent future pregnancies. The procedure has its own risks, but many women who opt for it end up requiring a correction when they change their minds

Proximal Tubal Occlusion

This involves the Isthmus and normally results from infections after an abortion, miscarriage, PID, caesarean section and some birth control procedures can block the tubes

Distal Tubal Occlusion

This type affects the end part near the ovary and hydrosalpinx is the major cause of the blockage.

Risk factors

Damage to fallopian tubes can result in infertility without any obvious signs or symptoms. Your risk for having a hydrosalpinx or blocked tubes increases with each of the following:

Appendicitis

Endometriosis

Previous pelvic surgery

Sexually transmitted disease

Pelvic Adhesions

The diagnosis changes to hydrosalpinges when both tubes are damaged. If you have experienced trouble getting pregnant, or have pelvic pain and unusual vaginal discharge, Dr. Douglas will want to rule out the possibility of hydrosalpinx or hydrosalpinges.

Causes of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

The most common cause of blocked fallopian tubes is a pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is the result of a sexually transmitted disease, but not all pelvic infections are related to STDs. Also, even if PID is no longer present, a history of PID or pelvic infection increases the risk of blocked tubes.

Other potential causes of blocked fallopian tubes include:

Current or history of an STD infection, specifically chlamydia or gonorrhea

History of uterine infection caused by an abortion or miscarriage

History of a ruptured appendix

History of abdominal surgery

Previous ectopic pregnancy

Prior surgery involving the fallopian tubes

Endometriosis

Symptoms of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Blocked fallopian tubes symptoms are very rare. The symptoms include

Strong to mild abdominal pain

Fever

Painful periods

Strange looking or smelling vaginal discharge

Feeling pain while having sex or passing urine, but because many women ovulate, fallopian tube blockage can go ignored until a woman wants to get pregnant.

Complications

Surgery to open the fallopian tubes carries the same potential complications as any surgery. These include:

Infection

Creation of more scar tissue

Damage to organs

Bleeding

One risk of pregnancy after surgery is an ectopic pregnancy, meaning that a fertilized egg gets stuck outside of the womb, often in a fallopian tube. The egg will not develop, and there can be a risk to a woman’s health.

Diagnosis of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

There really are no outward signs that will let you know if you are suffering from blocked fallopian tubes. If you have ever suffered from the pelvic inflammatory disease, there is a 15% -50% chance that your tubes are blocked.

The primary indicator that there is a blockage is an inability to conceive. Fortunately, there are diagnostic tests that can detect any abnormalities or blockages if there is evidence of some type of blockage to the tubes. Here are details on how blocked fallopian tubes are diagnosed…

Hysterosalpingogram (HSG)

Hysterosalpingogram is an X-ray test, using a contrast dye to view any obstruction in the fallopian tubes. The dye is inserted through a thin tube that is placed up through the vagina, into the uterus. Filling the uterus with this dye will then spill into the fallopian tubes. X-rays are then taken to determine if there is an injury or abnormal shape of the uterus and fallopian tubes, including obstruction in the tubes. This test is the number one test performed to determine if there is a blockage in the fallopian tubes.

Chromotubation

This test is similar to hysterosalpingogram because chromotubation includes dye being passed into the uterus and fallopian tubes as well. This test is performed during laparoscopy so that doctors can see the dye spilling from the fallopian tube. The dye used for this procedure cannot be seen on an X-ray, it is blue in color. This test is considered the most reliable way to determine fallopian tube blockage but does require surgery. It is not the initial test performed unless there is another reason to perform surgery such as chronic pelvic pain.

Sonohysterography

This is a non-invasive procedure where ultrasound imaging is used to determine if there are any abnormalities of the reproductive organs. This type of test is not always a reliable way to determine fallopian tube blockage since the tubes are so small and spillage of the fluid cannot always be seen on ultrasound. This test may help to determine hydrosalpinx or other issues such as uterine fibroids.

Treatment of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

For Single Tubal Blockage: This is not difficult to cure. It does not include complex process. Fertility specialists normally recommend powerful fertility drugs to patients to improve their probabilities of ovulating on whichever side the tube is open without blockage.

For Both Tubes Blockage: Here generally the fertility drugs are not satisfactory when both tubes are blocked. Here, laparoscopic surgery is the greatest desirable choice to overcome the problem. The chances of success depend on the age of the women if younger then better. Laparoscopic surgery either clears the blockage or splits out tissue that is affecting the issues.

Common laparoscopic procedures include:

Tubal ligation reversal involves surgically reopening, untying or reconnecting a woman’s fallopian tubes that have been intentionally tied off or closed from a tubal ligation. Tubal ligation reversal can enable a woman to become pregnant again and is generally performed through minimally invasive robotic surgery.

Salpingectomy is a surgery to address hydrosalpinx (a buildup of fluid in the fallopian tubes) by removing scar tissue around the tube or removing the damaged part of the tube that is causing the fluid buildup.

Tubal removal may also be the best option to treat infertility. Although removing a fallopian tube sounds drastic, the inflammation from a damaged tube is a constant irritation in the pelvic cavity that can interfere with fertility. By removing the damaged tube causing inflammation, there is a better chance of getting pregnant through the remaining healthy fallopian tube.

Adhesiolysis is the simultaneous use of laparoscopy and hysteroscopy to remove adhesions or blockages from the origin of the fallopian tube, where it exits the uterus. A fertility surgeon inserts imaging die into the woman’s fallopian tubes to visualize the blockage and then taps the blockage away from the end of the tube using a wire guide through a slender tube.

IVF: IVF is the most effective modality treatment for blocked fallopian tubes and frequently the last option for patients who wish to get over this sickness and become pregnant

Prevention of Blocked Fallopian Tubes

Preventive measures that you could take:

Avoid drinking and smoking.

Practice some meditation. This can help lower your stress levels.

Sign up for yoga classes, or do it at home. A few poses that can help boost the health of your reproductive organs are the butterfly pose and bridge pose.

Avoid excessive consumption of junk foods. Include foods like fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, and coconut oils. These are rich in antioxidants. Citrus foods, eggs, mangoes, zucchini, and spinach are rich in carotenoids, which help your enzymes and circulation as well.

Increase your intake of Vitamin C – it helps ease out inflammation.

Use herbal tampons. These contain herbs like goldenseal and Dong Quai, which can help clear out your fallopian tubes.
