Medications: Medications including antibiotics can be effective in treating Sexually Transmitted Diseases and PID. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid further damage. Medications also may be prescribed for Endometriosis, to help shrink the tissue that is blocking or distorting the organs. Surgery: Surgery may be an treatment option for opening up and/or repairing tubal damage or blockages from infection, endometriosis, surgery or other factors. Surgery is the only way to reverse a tubal legation, and it may be recommended to remove or block off the fallopian tubes prior to IVF for a patient with Hydrosalpinges.
In Vitro Fertilization (IVF): When blockages cannot be removed and/or tubal damage is so severe that it cannot be repaired, IVF is the recommended treatment. The tubes are bypassed during this procedure because the eggs are retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized outside of the body. The embryos are returned directly to the uterus for implantation. The preferred destination for Surrogacy and Infertility treatments.
