Frequently Asked Questions

There are two absolutely necessary conditions on the woman’s side. First, you have to be getting your period (ovulate) and second, your tubes need to be open. If your periods are there and you have been trying for at least six months and it has not happened, most likely it is blockages in the tubes that are preventing you from conceiving.
If it is about unblocking the Fallopian tubes, Felopio’s success rate is very high. More than 9 out of 10 women are successful. It is effective with both proximal and distal blockages. It is most effective with women in their natural state – no surgical attempts to unblock the tubes or history of tubal reversals. Hydrosalpinx can to take a little bit longer to cure, although this is not always fact for all women. The healing period may vary, but with patience and dedication, we believe all blockages can be removed. It is more about when, rather than if.

The Felopio treatment accomplishes a lot more than simply the extraction of blockages from the fallopian tubes, so all women will benefit from the treatment in one form or another.
It usually takes 3 to 7 days for the mixture to start softening blockages, scarring and adhesions within the reproductive tract and then you will start seeing debris in the flushes. Women have described those as “rolled up toilet paper tissue" or "noodle like particles”. The particles vary from woman to woman, and also from one moment in the procedure to another. Ultimately, you will also feel better overall and you will know it is working.

The time it takes to unblock the fallopian tubes varies. We consider about 40 days or two monthly cycles as the usual treatment duration and for most women one or two treatments is usually all it takes. Shortest time: as little as 20 days, while severe cases may require longer than usual treatments. We recommend you do no less than 40 days of treatment before you resume trying to conceive.
The Felopio treatment is not an alternative for a tubal reversal. You need to speak to your doctor to refer you to a specialist who will perform the reversal first. Following the reversal you can use the Felopio treatment to give your tubes the best chance to heal open.
Yes. Pelvic scans for many women have indicated the fibroids were reduced or were not seen at all following the treatment.
Absolutely. You will notice significant improvement by the time your next period arrives and once the treatment is complete, the menstrual pains will be a thing of the past.
Yes, although IVF should be reserved as a last resort for women who have lost both tubes and/or are no longer ovulating. For women in such situation, the Felopio treatment can be performed prior to an IVF cycle as it will improve the reproductive tract (especially the condition of the uterus) and dramatically increase the chances for IVF to be successful.
If you are using Felopio to unblock your tubes, it is best to avoid sex until the completion of the treatment. The reason we do not recommend any sexual intercourse in between tampon changes is because the unblocking is not instant, but it happens gradually over the course of the treatment. So, we want to make sure that all blockages are completely removed, before you resume trying. This precaution is to avoid the chance for an ectopic pregnancy before the tubes are fully open. Open they will, so have patience and allow the treatment to do its work first. If you were to have sex you have to be very careful and use protection.
You can shower, but swimming or taking baths during the Felopio treatment is not recommended.
Yes. You will carry on with most of your day-to-day tasks as normal.
It is best not to interrupt the process. Each day keeps building upon the efforts of its predecessor, so whenever you interrupt the procedure you impede your progress. If you have to interrupt, for example due to traveling, you can leave the tampon inside for up to 48 hours. It is better to leave it in than to go without.
No. Felopio is only used in between periods and never during your period. As soon as you notice any spotting you would pause the treatment. Wait until your period is done to resume with the remaining tampons.
Felopio is only used in between menstrual cycles and NEVER during your period, so there is zero risk of TSS. Also, the nature of Felopio tampons is totally different from the regular tampons used during your menstrual cycle. The regular tampons are designed to absorb and prevent leakage, while the Felopio tampons on the contrary serve to evacuate debris.
Felopio works on the reproductive system locally, and it does not have a direct effect on your hormone levels. However, once your reproductive system and overall health have been improved, it is not uncommon for your hormone levels to normalize as well.
Felopio is 100% natural (only plant based). It has absolutely no traces of peanuts or gluten. If you have any allergies to plants, you can try Felopio at your discretion. If you experience any inconvenience, discontinue the procedure immediately, and return the complete unused portion for a full refund (less 100 USD shipping and handling fees). We believe Felopio’s purity and 100% plant based origin make it absolutely safe for most women.

When Felopio softens and removes the blockage, the loose tissue is carried down the fallopian tubes. If the blockage has moved to the proximal end of the fallopian tube (the tube appears completely blocked during the HSG test) it means that the treatment must be continued to completely remove the blockage.

distal and proximal blocked fallopian tubes Before the Felopio treatment, the fallopian tubes are blocked - left tube is distal and right tube is proximal.

proximal blocked fallopian tube After the Felopio treatment the proximal blockage in the right tube was cleaned, however distal blockage in the left tube has now moved down the tube and become proximal blockage. The left tube appears to be fully blocked, meaning that treatment must be continued until the tube is cleared completely.

This is a good question we are sure a lot of you have in the back of your minds. The answer is complex, but it boils down to the very core of the issue of infertility. The stigma associated with the inability to have children runs deep into the social fabric. Most people simply do not want to talk about it and often suffer in silence while looking for answers within traditional and alternative medicine. The pressure from relatives and friends asking "When are you going to have a little one?" can weight like a ton on a person struggling with such a problem. When a woman or a couple struggling with infertility are asked this questions they would often go around it and answer: “It is not the right time. Once we get our finances/careers on track, we will get on it.”

The reality is that once the solution has been found, and you are able to carry the seed, euphoria will take place, and when the child has come into this world, we can hardly blame you for not dedicating any of your free time to talk to the world how you were once infertile. As soon as you have children, your whole focus is on them, and you may not necessarily want to crusade for the cause. You have arrived and you are a mother now.

Ultimately, after all these years, if the Felopio treatment did not deliver results - shouldn’t the internet be buzzing with how it doesn’t work?
