Dealing with Hydrosalpinx while TTC? How to manage it.

I learnt about hydrosalpinx during one of my doctors visit a few years back. I was shattered at the point of learning the word because I knew it didn’t mean anything good considering the reason I was in my doctors office in the first place….of course I asked him questions and went home to research as well.

One of the ways I deal with issues is to adequately equip myself with all the information I need to tackle and deal with it. So I spent sleepless night learning about hydrosalpinx while on the doctors medication.

I knew I had to learn about it because doctors would hardly tell you about non-conventional ways (herbal/natural) of healing because of their science background, which oftentimes helps.

I found out that hydrosalpinx was common despite hearing it for the first time. It is the major cause of infertility in females and oftentimes it goes unnoticed until you are trying to conceive. Hydrosalpinx is a condition in which the fallopian tube(s) is blocked (filled with fluid close to the ovary). It can be unilateral, where just one tube is affected in my case or bilateral, in this case both of the tubes are affected.

There are two symptoms of hydrosalpinx, one of which I have mentioned earlier, which is when you are trying to conceive. Another symptom is abdominal pain. Abdominal pain as a result of infection or surgery.

Then the causes of hydrosalpinx are the following.

  • PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), this is the major cause of hydrosalpinx and what I was diagnosed with.
  • The othe causes include previous surgery, ruptured appendicitis or scar tissue (endometriosis).

You can find out if you have hydrosalpinx by paying a visit to your doctor and getting diagnosed through any three methods below.

  • Scan, this is how I was diagnosed with PID.
  • Surgery, here the doctor would create an incision on your stomach and use a special telescope to examine your tubes.
  • Lastly, the X-ray-HSG, here a liquid is inserted into your tubes, usually a die, AMD through the means or an x-ray machine the doctor can see the blocked areas the liquid couldn’t pass through.

Hydrosalpinx can be managed medically using tubal corrective surgery or IVF. Or through non medical methods I would touch on below.

So ill be sharing below my personal experience on how I managed hydrosalpinx through non-invasive methods.

I ensured I completed the prescribed antibiotic before starting any of the medication ill be talking about briefly;

  • Serrapeptase: I started out taking two tablets daily, one in the morning and one at night. However I doubled up when I started feeling relieved (less pain on my pelvic area). I took this for about 3 months.
  • Wobenzyme: This I didn’t really feel like it helped me but I still took for a month. I didn’t skip a day. I ensured I took my tablets judiciously.
  • Gufei Bao: This is a herbal tampon that I felt helped a lot too. I did this till I noticed clear fluid when I take them out.

Finally, listen to your body while you are ovulating……..

……While ovulating, I lay down on my bed or couch and relax with my hand on my stomach. Depending on how I pay attention, I would feel the movement of the eggs from the ovary towards the uterus. At the early stage of treatment I felt a sharp pain while the eggs were trying to make their way through the inflamed tubes. But as I responded to treatment, the less pain I felt. Also I ensured I completed my medications and saw my doctor afterwards.
