Fallopian tubes

This is an old revision of this page, as edited by J00ni (Talk | contribs) at 16:21, 9 August 2008. It may differ significantly from current revision.

The Fallopian tubes are tubes within the female body which play an important role in human reproduction. The ovum passes from the ovary to the uterus, by being gently swept along by cilia in the Fallopian tubes. The tubes are no bigger than a quarter in diameter and no longer than a candy cane (which they resemble in shape). Ectopic pregnancies, where the unborn child develops outside of the uterus, most commonly occur within the fallopian tubes.
