Is it necessary to treat salpingitis before starting IVF?

By José María Sánchez Jordán M.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 03/31/2022

Salpingitis is defined as inflammation/infection of the fallopian tubes, these are tubular structures that communicate the ovaries with the uterus, allowing the ascent of the sperm to fertilize the ovum collected by the ampullary portion, and lead it to the endometrium where it must be implanted.

Inflammation of this anatomical structure in direct communication with the endometrium alters endometrial receptivity and therefore reduces the chances of blastocyst implantation.

In this case, salpingitis must be treated prior to the start of IVF, or prior to embryo transfer. In most cases, it involves bilateral salpingectomy, removal of both fallopian tubes.
