Do regular periods occur if fallopian tubes are blocked?

Q: Do regular periods occur if either of the fallopian tubes are blocked?

A:Yes, regular periods do occur if either or both tubes are blocked (e.g. adhesions following infection following abortion, delivery, or following surgery in the pelvis). However, some diseases that result in blocked tubes also affect the ovaries and endometrium, (e.g. tuberculosis) and in such a case the menses can become irregular, or heavy or scant or even stop.
