Tip #33: Hydrosalpinx

This diagram shows a Hydrosalpinx or dilated, fluid-filled fallopian tube.

Did you know that this can occur after an infection from Chlamydia or Gonorrhea? Some women develop this from Endometriosis or after pelvic surgery. A hydrosalpinx can make it difficult for a woman to conceive and increases her risk of an Ectopic Pregnancy.
