WHAT ARE FALLOPIAN TUBES?
The Fallopian tubes are generally where an egg is fertilized by sperm, and have small hair-like projections called cilia on the cells of the lining. These tubal cilia are essential to the movement of the egg and sperm through the tube into the uterus where implantation and development occur.
COMMON ISSUES AND CONCERNS
Infection can also cause partial or complete blockage of the tube with scar tissue, physically preventing the egg from getting to the uterus.
Any issues including infection, endometriosis, tumors, or scar tissue in the pelvis (pelvic adhesions) that damages the Fallopian tube or narrows its diameter increases the chance of an ectopic, or tubal, pregnancy: a pregnancy developing in the Fallopian tube or another abnormal location outside the uterus.
Women who no longer want children can have their “tubes tied,” or other minor procedures, to prevent eggs from moving from the Fallopian tubes into the uterus.
