Yoga for Uterine Tubes

(August 18, 2008)

I have blockage in fallopian tubes due to which I cannot conceive. What are the poses and asanas by which I can get rid of blockage?


Fallopian tubes are also called as uterine tubes or oviducts. They are a pair of tubes found in the female reproductive system especially in the pelvic cavity. These tubes play an important part in fertility and conception. The egg that is released from the ovary is grabbed by one of the fallopian tubes. These tubes help the egg reach the uterus. The sperm of the male is fertilized with the egg of the female in the fallopian tube leading to the formation of the embryo. Once the embryo is formed, these tubes guide the embryo to reach the uterus for implantation.

If the fallopian tubes are not functioning properly, then pregnancy can be difficult. One of the common complications of fallopian tubes is blocked fallopian tubes. Sometime one or both the tubes get blocked thus hindering the entry of the egg to the uterus. Thus conception becomes impossible.

Fallopian blockage can occur due to pelvic inflammatory disease. When the infection of the disease affect the body, white blood corpuscles and fluids are formed that can fill the tubes and can fight against the infection. It can attack against the infection but the walls of the Fallopian tubes get scarred. The end of the tube can get blocked and may not allow the egg to reach the uterus .If pelvic inflammatory disease is treated initially then we can correct the damage quickly. Pelvic infection can occur due to gonorrhea, pregnancy termination, miscarriage and contraceptive methods. Hence if there is any fault in the fallopian tube, do not delay. It is very necessary to consult a gynecologist who can provide suitable medicines and treatment to rectify the problem.

In spite of the fact that blocked fallopian tube is a common infertility problem in women, there is no specific yoga asana for this problem. However certain yoga poses that can be beneficial for women for increasing the fertility are:

  • Setubandhanasana (Supported bridge pose): Lie flat on your back. Bend your knees so that the feet are placed close to the buttocks. Inhale and on exhalation lift the pelvis and the buttocks off the floor. Make sure that your thighs are parallel to the floor. Remain in this pose for few seconds. Exhale and come back to the lying position.

  • Viparita Karani (Legs on the wall pose): Lie on the ground with your buttocks touching the wall. On exhalation, extend the legs up the wall to maintain an angle of 90 degrees. Remain in this pose for few seconds.
