What Are Fallopian Tubes?

Fallopian tubes are a pair of tubes attached to the ovaries of female reproductive system. They are responsible for connecting the ovaries with the uterus. Each fallopian tube is about 1 to 2 inches long and they are collapsed inwards. The interior of the fallopian tubes contains many small finger-like structures called fimbrial end.

In women, the ova released from the ovary pass through the fallopian tubes and to the uterus. Here, the egg is fertilized and travel back through the fallopian tubes to the uterus. Here, it implants itself into uterine wall and nourishes itself for 9 months.

The fallopian tubes are called “channel of hope” when a woman is unable to become pregnant, the tubes are evaluated for any blockage or abnormalities in the structure. A blockage or obstruction in fallopian tube can cause infertility. In some cases, medication can help to open the fallopian tubes by increasing ovulation rate.

In other cases, a minor surgery called tuboplasty is recommended to unblock the fallopian tubes.

What are blocked fallopian tubes?

Fallopian tubes are the tubes that lead from the ovaries to the uterus. The fallopian tubes transport an egg from one side to the other; this is the process of fertilization.

The fallopian tubes connect the uterus to the ovaries. If a fallopian tube is blocked or damaged, it is hard for an egg to get to the uterus, fertilization is difficult to occur and pregnancy cannot happen. These fallopian tube issues are referred to as tubal infertility.

When a woman cannot fall pregnant, it is crucial for her to see a doctor to determine the cause. A woman's infertility can be caused by many conditions, for example, her partner's sperm quality can be poor or she might have a medical condition that limits her fertility. Fallopian tube damage is only one cause of infertility.

One condition that commonly causes damage to the fallopian tubes is pelvic inflammatory disease. This condition can be caused by sexually transmitted infection and can affect the reproductive organs and the urinary tract.

Fallopian tube damage can be caused by several medical conditions. It is possible to reverse some of these causes of damage, for example, endometriosis and uterine adhesions. Women who have had severe pelvic infections may not be able to have children due to fallopian tube damage.

There are several ways you can help treat blocked fallopian tubes; some are natural alternatives, while others involve surgery.

How can Yoga help fix blocked Fallopian tubes?

Many women have a blocked fallopian tube and are unaware of it. Because blocked Fallopian tubes are mostly asymptomatic; they might never even know. The signs that the tubes are blocked include problems conceiving, recurrent miscarriages, and pain during intercourse. The blockage can be due to fungal or bacterial infections, inflammation, perforation, or structural or developmental issues. A blocked fallopian tube can be a leading cause of female infertility.

Treatment options that are available to treat blocked Fallopian tubes include surgery and medical interventions. The problem with these methods is that they involve a lot of risk and are expensive. These treatments can take long to show results. Surgery may involve complications and side effects. Medical interventions often cause side effects like weight gain, bloating, mood swings, and fatigue. Natural treatments that have no side effects are always desirable and appealing. It is much safer to rely on natural remedies.

How Yoga can help in fixing blocked Fallopian tubes? How?

The postures and meditations in Yoga can be very effective in treating the conditions related to blocked Fallopian tubes. Here are some examples of how Yoga can help.

Many women are unaware that they have blocked fallopian tubes, because most of the symptoms resemble other, more common conditions. The most common symptoms include painful periods, endometriosis, unexplained cramping, and lack of ovulation.

Yoga poses that are good for opening blocked fallopian tubes include: Lunge, Cobra, and Bow.

The lunge creates space between the hip flexors and the floor, to make the hips and pelvis more flexible. This is excellent for women who are experiencing pelvic pain during menstruation and ovulation.

The bow pose stretches the lower abdomen, the chest and the back. It’s also a good backbend that massages the abdomen with the boost of the backbend.

The cobra pose stretches and tones the chest and abdomen and opens the back. It’s a basic backbend that is good for lengthening tight areas.

Viparita Karani

There are many natural methods for treating infertility, especially when the female is diagnosed with tubal blockage or damage, called as tubal infertility. Yoga is a natural remedy and a great way to open blocked fallopian tubes without the use of any drugs, or artificial methods.

Yoga exercises like Viparita Karani, are the most beneficial in opening blocked fallopian tubes, as they clear out toxins accumulated in the body due to various reasons and aid the process of detaching from materialistic habits, heal the brain, help in balancing hormones, and more.

During Viparita Karani, the yoga practitioner must focus on healing the damaged or blocked fallopian tubes. S/he must pay particular attention to the ease of breathing. When there is increased flow of energy along the spine, it will reach the reproductive organs, and help the fallopian tube in the process of self-healing. Increased flow of energy to the reproductive organs can be brought about by the yoga practitioner trying to move with the breath. Mind should be kept at a distance.

To Conclude

Yoga has been used as a method of healing for thousands of years. Not only for physical healing, but also for mental and spiritual healing. The ultimate goal of yoga is to reconnect you with yourself and help you achieve a deeper level of awareness. It’s a very slow and gradual process, but once you achieve that, it brings you unlimited opportunities and benefits.

The reason yoga is such a powerful healing method is because you are making first contact with your true self. It’s the elimination of the ego. When you are no longer governed by your ego, true healing can occur.

With the right learnings and mindset, yoga can actually help improve fertility. The effects of Yoga on the reproductive system are really just a byproduct of practicing yoga, there is much more to it than just that, but it’s a nice perk. Yoga also has many other health benefits like helping with your health by lowering stress levels, reducing pain and inflammation. It can help increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, which helps flush out toxins, and it can even improve your sleep.

The key to it all is your daily practice. You can make it as easy as possible by taking classes at your local yoga studio.

Asanas that increase circulation can help you conceive, and are therefore helpful for blocked fallopian tube problems.

  • Standing forward bend.
  • Standing side bend.
  • Standing twist.
  • Standing forward bend. – Standing side bend. – Standing twist. There are some asanas that force the uterus to contract. These asanas are said to help clear blockages in the fallopian tubes.

Jalandhara bandha (chin lock) and Mula bandha (intestine contraction) are two examples of simple methods to contract the uterus. Practices such as these can be incorporated into your existing daily routine.

Meditating on your heart chakra can help balance the heart-mind. This meditation helps come to terms with possible infertility by loving yourself around the idea.

Bhramari (humming bee) is a simple pranayama (breath exercise) that helps balance energy in the entire body.

Padmasana

Lotus Pose

This simple yoga posture will keep you stable and active, but it won’t cause wider hips, bigger thighs, or a bigger behind.

In this pose, you’re seated on the floor, lotus-style (more on this later). To open the fallopian tubes, you’re going to shift your weight on one side, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and then hold the pose for about 30 seconds. Then you’re going to switch sides, repeating the whole process.

What you’ll do:

Take a seat in lotus-style on the floor.

Place your palms on the ground, or on your thighs, to give you more stability.

Close your eyes and sit upright. Breathe deeply.

Begin to shift your weight to the left, keeping your hips centered. The idea is that you’re actually trying to tilt the hip on the right side underneath the body. If you’re not a yoga expert, you might have to be careful about bumping your knee against the floor, so keep leaning just to the right of vertical, always trying to keep the hips centered.

After a reasonable time, switch sides and repeat.

Bhujangasana

(Cobra)

This pose helps to drain venous congestion and increase blood circulation to the pelvic area. It also stimulates the thyroid and pineal glands, which helps to re-establish hormonal balance. Upward Bow also opens and expands the chest, encouraging deep breathing and helping to loosen and drain the lymphatic system. This pose is particularly beneficial for women with endometriosis, fibroids or ovarian cysts.

Sitali (Airplane)

This cooling breath helps to calm the nervous system and bring calm to the mind. Sitali has the ability to flush out the lymphatic system and help to decongest the tissues of the ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes, and groin. Because so many women struggle with endometriosis, fibroids, uterine prolapse, and pelvic adhesions, this classically cooling yoga breathing technique is especially useful.

Vajrasana (Diamond)

This pose specifically works on pelvic congestion and helps to ease the discomfort of adhesions, cysts, and hormonal imbalances. The hips are open by the support of the ankles and the wrists, while the knees are bent and thighs are gently pressing into the ground. The hips are supported in this pose, which helps to expand and open the pelvic cavity.

Upavishta Konasana

Upavishtha Konasana is a very simple yoga posture that increases blood flow to the vagina and uterus. It is also known as “open leg butterfly”. These open the fallopian tubes and have a positive effect on the overall sexual health and reproductive system of the women. Other benefits include a strengthening of the thighs and ankles.

This posture can open the fallopian tubes and other aspects of the female reproductive system. It is also good for the hamstrings and increases blood flow to the pelvic region.

In order to open the fallopian tubes through yoga, a woman can do the open leg butterfly pose. To attain this posture, the woman has to lay on her back and raise her legs. She has to spread them apart and then pull them up towards the chest.

For the next motion, the woman has to turn her legs outwards. This opens the fallopian tubes and strengthens the thighs.

This is a very helpful posture for the female reproductive system and the kidneys. The practice of this posture helps to ease menstrual symptoms as well as back pain before it and during periods.

Baddha Konasana

Baddha Konasana, which means “Butterfly Pose,” is a staple pose in most Yoga classes. Make sure you are careful when performing this pose.

You’ll want to be seated on a firm surface that will not move. Make sure your chosen surface is not slippery.

From seated position, bring your knees in to either side of your torso. You can allow your feet to touch together, but your knees should remain as far apart as you can manage.

Bring your knees in towards your navel and then lift your feet of the ground. Carefully sit further back into your seat in a sort of squatting motion. Try touching the top or lightly resting your feet on the ground. Once you have made your adjustments, attempt to keep both feet off the ground while holding the position.

The purpose of this pose is to help boost circulation to the pelvic area. It increases the production of blood flow to the ovaries, which in turn increases production of follicles.

Because the body is made up of a variety of fluids, there are several methods in which Yoga can be used to help restore balance and vitality to the body.

Balasana

Balasana is the yoga pose called—child’s pose. It is intended to be a resting pose and it can be a great soothing and rejuvenating pose for your body. You can practice this pose in a horizontal position or even in a laying-down position.

Position your body on the ground with straight legs. Bend all your knees towards the navel and keep your feet anywhere around the gluteal region with the heels near the buttocks. Contract your thigh muscles as much as possible and spread the toes. Open your arms to the sides.

This pose is particularly good if you become nauseated. It makes the body elastic. Meditate or concentrate on your breathing to help you relax.

Concluding Thoughts

Yoga can be a great stress buster, especially during pregnancy, and can be a great way to get in shape. There is little research being done on whether or not yoga can heal blocked fallopian tubes, or if it is valid in this regard. You should continue to see a specialist to ensure that your health is not being harmed.

However, what has been studied is that yoga has many other health benefits and can, as an exercise, have many beneficial effects on your body. Many women all over the world are using yoga to get pregnant.

Always check with your doctor when you start yoga to make sure you are doing it correctly.
