How to Get Pregnant when both Fallopian Tubes are Blocked

There are two tiny tubes called fallopian tubes on either side of the uterus. These tubes are responsible for transporting a mature egg from the ovaries to the uterus. The fallopian tube is where the egg is fertilized and the resulting embryo then travels into the uterine cavity where it implants. If the fallopian tubes are injured or blocked, the chances of conceiving are greatly diminished.

An ectopic pregnancy ensues when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, most often in one of the fallopian tubes. These pregnancies are not viable and may result in a life threatening situation.
