Hydrosalpinx result from injury to the tube, usually from an infection. The common causes of hydrosalpinx are chlamydia and gonorrhea, IUDs, endometriosis, and abdominal surgery .The tubal fluid usually is sterile, and does not contain an active infection. A hydrosalpinx causes infertility since the fluid provides an unfavorable environment and it can reduce the success rate of fertility treatment.
With history of hydrosalpinx previously, complications like blocked are a possibility. Hence if you want to avoid ttc stress, you should consult your gynecologist beforehand. Testing of the fallopian tubes either with the help of hystero-salpingography, ultrasound or laparoscopy will help diagnose any problem. A pelvic scan provides a quick and painless screen of the pelvic organs and is very useful as a first assessment of the tubes .
Hydrosalpinx has a high recurrence rate. After surgery, the chances of conceiving are good in younger women with relatively healthy ovaries and eggs. The removal of a damaged tube reduces the risk of complications of therapy and can enhance success rates with in vitro fertilization techniques.
It is best to consult an infertility expert and get evaluated. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. I sincerely hope it helps. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
