Abstract

A patient with bilateral tubal occlusion concieved by IVF and delivered a healthy infant vaginally. Four months postpartum, the patient again concieved spontaneously and carried to term. Recanalization of one fallopian tube was demonstrated on HSG performed after delivery of the second infant. Mechanical stretching and pregnancy-induced hormonal changes may explain spontaneous recanalization of obstructed fallopian tubes.
