After PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) resolves, the damaged fallopian tube can become blocked, fill with sterile fluid, and become enlarged. Damage to the fallopian tube from previous surgery or adhesions can also result in hydrosalpinx.
Hydrosalpinx may be associated with pain or may be asymptomatic except for tubal factor infertility.
