Tubal Patency

What Is Fetal

Tubal Patency?

Tubal patency refers to the openness and lack of blockage in the fallopian tubes. If the fallopian tubes are patent (open), an ovulated egg can be fertilized within one of the tubes and travel to the uterus for potential implantation.

If the tubes are blocked, the sperm and egg cannot meet, and conception will not be possible.

Blocks or occlusions in the fallopian tubes are a cause of female factor infertility known as tubal infertility.
