Can I get pregnant naturally if I have hydrosalpinx?

By Sara Salgado.
Last Update: 08/09/2018

If one of the tubes does not have hydrosalpinx or any other alteration, a natural pregnancy can occur, as the sperm can reach the egg in the unaffected tube. However, if both tubes are obstructed, there can be no natural pregnancy or artificial insemination. IVF would be necessary.

In addition, the fluid accumulated in the tube can be harmful to the embryos and make it difficult or impossible to implant them, so it would be necessary to assess whether it is advisable to intervene before attempting a pregnancy.
