Using Felopio and herbs to unblock your fallopian tubes naturally

Every once in a while I come across a website which make my blood boil, because it takes advantage of an infertile women's ignorance; and exploits her hopes and desires to make a quick buck.

A good example is, which promises a " natural herbal remedy " which will allow women to open their blocked tubes.

This is a very tall claim to make - but they can make it and get away with it, because it's a herbal remedy, so it does not need to be tested or approved ! Also, this is the internet, so people can make any claim they want !

Felopio is a tampon which contains herbs , which are supposed to work their magic on the fallopian tubes, after being placed in the vagina. This is a very clever marketing ploy, and even though it's all hocus-pocus, it's not hard to understand why it's so successful.

Women would rather try natural stuff at home rather than go to a doctor - and if they can order a simple remedy sitting at home, they are very tempted to do so ! Using felopio is easy to do - and because they can do it for themselves, they feel they are taking control of their problem and tackling it proactively.

Husbands also like the idea that this is a DIY remedy , which is safe and non-invasive. After all, what's the harm of trying it out ? It's local - and putting the herbs so close to the tubes makes a lot of intuitive sense ! So what if doctors don't recommend this ? Doctors don't know everything, do they ? Aren't there lots of other herbal remedies which have been shown to be effective
( which doctors don't learn anything about ?) Even if doesn't work, at least it won't do any harm ?

It's true that it's tempting to buy this product. The site is very attractively laid out - and is full of glowing testimonials and (unauthenticated) success stories.

Yes, it's true that some women may get pregnant after using Felopio - but this does not mean that the Felopio opened their tubes ! Often, the diagnosis of "blocked tubes" itself was wrong in the first place. It's common for doctors to report the tube is blocked, when actually it's just a cornual spasm which prevents the dye from entering the ( open) tubes.

The tragedy is that it is still very easy to fool infertile patients, who are deperately seeking a quick fix solution. It's easy to prey on their ignorance - and this results in their wasting valuable time and money .

Don't get taken for a ride - your best protection is Information Therapy !

    what is the solution doctor?

    1. You can read more about this at

      I am sorry there is no way of repairing damaged fallopian tubes, as they cannot function normally
      even after surgery, since their inner lining ( the cilia) has been damaged.

      I agree that IVF would be your best treatment option
      as it would maximise your chances of conceiving quickly.

      Treatment takes about 20 days. Should I send you the treatment plan ?

      I need more information.

      Could you please send me your medical details by filling in the form at so I can guide you better ?
