Having an appendectomy to treat appendicitis can increase the chances of developing female infertility. As the body heals after an appendectomy, the tissues that have been cut during the procedure often develop adhesions. Adhesions are thin fibrous bands the cement together tissues that are normally separated. When adhesions develop in the pelvis, they may obstruct a woman's fallopian tubes, which block a man's sperm from joining with a woman's egg and fertilizing it. Appendicitis itself may also increase the chances of female infertility.
