Granulation Tissue

Rounded, fleshy connective tissue projections ont he surface of a healing wound

Question: Granulation tissue? Heres the question i cant find the answer to: Mrs. Lynsay sees her gynecologist because she is unable to become pregnant. the doctor discovers granulation tissue in her vaginal canal and explains that sperm are susceptible to some of the same chemicals as bacteria. What is inhibiting the sperm?

Answer: I suppose that the granulation tissue alters the pH making it more difficult for the sperm to perform their function. Additionally, enzymes may be liberated from the granulation tissue which lead to the breakdown of the spermatazoa.
