Who Needs to Have Their Fallopian Tubes Removed?

As is known publicly, the fallopian tube is an essential channel for bonding egg and sperm. Removal of the fallopian tube will have an impact on a woman's fertility. What's more, there are other impacts.


Firstly, the fallopian tube is an important channel to ensure the normal output of eggs and the normal union of sperm and eggs. Therefore, once the fallopian tube is removed, it will directly impact the normal fertility of women, thus leading to female infertility.

Secondly, women can't get pregnant naturally if their fallopian tubes are removed. The fallopian tubes are the only channel for sperm and eggs to meet, so if they are removed, sperm and eggs can't be combined naturally, and related people can only have IVF.

Thirdly, if the entire fallopian tube is removed, it will greatly impact a woman's fertility. Even if one side of the fallopian tubes can be preserved, it will reduce a woman's chances of pregnancy and increase the chance of ectopic pregnancy.

Therefore, to ensure a woman's fertility, it is essential to preserve the fallopian tubes as much as possible if allowed.

 So, who must have their fallopian tubes removed?

The fallopian tubes need to be removed in four cases, including tubal disease, sterilization, cancer prevention, and fallopian tube rupture after pregnancy. The details are as follows:

1. Fallopian tube diseases: if the fallopian tubes show symptoms such as abscess, bruising, and fluids, or if the tubes become cancerous, the tubes need to be removed; if the tubes are severely deformed or adhered, and the form and function of the tubes cannot be restored by treatment, the affected side of the tubes should be removed.

2. Sterilization: besides doing tubal ligation, removing the fallopian tubes can also reach the goal of sterilization, preventing the combination of sperm and eggs;

3. Cancer prevention: Women with a family history of ovarian or fallopian tube cancer can choose sterilization by removing the fallopian tubes after completing childbirth if they do not require pregnancy. Since the fallopian tubes are more prone to cancer than the ovaries, removing the tubes can also prevent fallopian tube cancer and ovarian cancer.

4. If the fallopian tube ruptures after pregnancy and cannot be repaired or the amount of bleeding is relatively large, removal of the fallopian tube will be chosen to stop the bleeding as soon as possible and save the patient's life.

After a woman has had a tubectomy, the impact on her body is great, and she must strengthen the post-operative care at this time. Resting temporarily and reducing physical labor is recommended to speed up the recovery of the patient's strength after surgery. It is necessary to especially pay attention to minimizing the pressure on the abdomen and never squeeze the inside of the stomach to cause the wound to tear.


Women should eat more protein-rich foods and minimize spicy and stimulating eating habits after tubal removal, which will greatly help recovery after the surgery. It is also prohibited to touch cold water or eat cold food after tubectomy to avoid stimulating the body and affecting post-operative recovery. Therefore, women must take better care of themselves after the tubectomy to promote healing.

The fallopian tube is a vital channel in a woman's body. If a woman has to have her fallopian tube removed due to certain disease factors, she must pay attention to good psychological care after surgery and not have excessive low self-esteem or anxiety. Women should keep their bodies warm and observe changes in their bodies to avoid bleeding and painful sequelae and should go to the hospital for regular checkups until their wounds have been fully cured.
