What herbs to use for blocked fallopian tubes

Updated March 23, 2017

Blockage in the Fallopian tubes is a common cause for infertility. A blocked Fallopian tube could be caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis or fibroid tumours in the uterus. You may not know you have a blocked Fallopian tube until you try to conceive, because there are no obvious signs or indications. Your doctor may perform a hysterosalpingography or a sonohysterography to see any blockages. You could get surgery to correct the problem, but there are also some herbal remedies that can be used to relieve a blocked Fallopian tube.

Herbs for Blocked Fallopian tubes

Herbs provide a natural option for correcting a blocked Fallopian tube. The Fallopian tubes are thin and tiny, and if they become inflamed there may be a resulting blockage. Accordingly, herbs that stimulate blood flow and reduce inflammation are used for relieving blocked Fallopian tubes.

Ginger is used for blocked Fallopian tubes because it increases blood circulation and decreases inflammation to release a blocked Fallopian tube. Ginger also has the added benefit of allowing the body to adapt to stress, thereby making it effective in relaxing the body as a whole to cure a blocked Fallopian tube. Ginseng acts similarly by stimulating blood flow to the pelvis to help release blocked Fallopian tubes. Goldenseal can be taken for blocked Fallopian tubes as it has anti-inflammatory properties to reduce inflammation and scar-tissue production. Other herbs to use for blocked Fallopian tubes include ginkgo, feverfew and cayenne pepper, as each of these herbs increase blood circulation through the reproductive organs.

Massage Therapy for Blocked Fallopian tubes

Massage therapy can be used for blocked Fallopian tubes to help break up scar tissue, stimulate blood flow and induce healing. Place a castor oil pack on your stomach to promote blood circulation and induce healing of the tissues and reproductive organs.
