After Miscarriage: How to Prevent Fallopian Tube Blockage
During pregnancy, some women in mid to late stages may, due to their health conditions or fetal developmental abnormalities, unfortunately, need to terminate the pregnancy through miscarriage surgery.


The primary goal of miscarriage surgery is to protect women, but it can also lead to a series of sequelae. 

So, how can one prevent fallopian tube blockage after miscarriage?

Generally, with proper miscarriage surgery and correct postoperative care, fallopian tube blockage should not occur. However, a small number of patients may still experience fallopian tube blockage, leading to secondary infertility. 

Moreover, as the number of miscarriage surgeries increases, the incidence of fallopian tube blockage significantly rises.

To prevent fallopian tube blockage after miscarriage, attention should be paid to the following points:

1. Postoperative Care

After miscarriage surgery, women's bodies go through a period of weakness. During this time, their immune system is relatively low, and failure to rest and recuperate properly can lead to fatigue and further immune suppression.

When the body's resistance is weakened, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens can easily invade, leading to various gynecological inflammations. If these inflammations affect the fallopian tubes, they can increase the risk of salpingitis and subsequent blockage.

Therefore, women should ensure adequate sleep and rest after miscarriage surgery and avoid excessive fatigue and intense exercise. Additionally, indoor ventilation should be maintained to keep the air fresh and create a conducive environment for recovery.

2. Nutritional Supplementation

Miscarriage surgery consumes significant energy and nutrients from a woman's body. Therefore, timely and adequate nutritional supplementation is crucial for recovery and prevention of complications. Regarding diet, foods rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals should be consumed.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are essential as they contain nutrients such as vitamin C, E, folate, dietary fiber, etc., enhancing the body's antioxidant capacity, promoting metabolism, and boosting immunity.

Furthermore, adequate mineral supplementation, such as iron and calcium, is essential to prevent anemia and osteoporosis. Foods such as animal liver, pork blood, black fungus, dried shrimp, sesame paste, etc., are rich sources of these minerals.

3. Emphasize Personal Hygiene

After miscarriage surgery, women will experience a period of lochia discharge, during which personal hygiene care is critical. Changing sanitary pads frequently, ideally every 2-3 hours, is advisable to maintain cleanliness and dryness of the external genital area.

Clean the external genital area with warm water 1-2 times a day, ensuring to wipe from front to back to avoid transferring bacteria from the anus to the vagina. However, it's important to note that during unclean lochia discharge, avoid taking baths or douching to prevent ascending infections.

4. Pay Attention to Sexual Activity

After miscarriage surgery, the uterine endometrium needs time to repair, and the cervical os remains open. Engaging in sexual activity prematurely during this period may introduce external bacteria into the vagina, leading to cervicitis, endometritis, salpingitis, and other gynecological inflammations, which can potentially cause fallopian tube blockage.

Therefore, it is recommended to avoid sexual activity for 1-2 months after miscarriage surgery. The specific duration should be based on individual recovery and confirmed by medical examination before resuming sexual activity.

5. Maintain a Good Psychological State

After surgery, some women may experience negative emotions such as depression, anxiety, or tension. These emotions affect physical recovery and may cause hormonal imbalance, reduce immune function, and increase the risk of infections and complications.

After miscarriage surgery, women should learn to regulate their emotions and maintain a relaxed and pleasant mood. Listening to music, reading, taking walks, or chatting with friends can help relieve stress and relax. If necessary, seeking help from a professional psychologist is also advisable.

In addition to the lifestyle mentioned above and care and preventive measures, the appropriate use of medications such as the herbal medicine Fuyan Pill can enhance recovery under medical guidance. 

The pill clears heat, detoxifies, promotes blood circulation, removes blood stasis, invigorates the spleen, and eliminates dampness. It effectively treats chronic gynecological inflammations, improves pelvic blood circulation, encourages absorption and resolution of inflammations, and prevents adhesion and blockage of the fallopian tubes.
