Infections: If the fallopian tube is inflamed, then tubal disease may occur. This can cause infertility. In few cases, the infection may occur due to sexually transmitted organisms like gonorrhea or Chlamydia.
- Hydrosalpinx due to a genital tract infection: At times, the damaged fallopian tubes get inflamed and filled with fluid. A Hydrosalpinx is a form of tubal obstruction. The tube is blocked near the fimbria end (the external end of the tube, which is in contact with the ovary surface). And a clear watery liquid fills up the tube. The major reason behind this is genital tract infections such as Chlamydia in a majority of cases.
Surgery: Abdominal surgical techniques such as tubal ligation removal may result in tube damage. Furthermore, any complication from a cesarean section may also result in damage. Disorders such as Endometriosis and Uterine Fibroids might also cause scarring between the end of the ovary and the fallopian tube.
