Fallopian tubes

Tubes between the ovaries and the uterus. It is in the Fallopian tubes that a sperm fertilises an egg.

The Fallopian tubes consist of two thin tubes, 15 cm long, located on either side of the fundus - at the "horns" of this more or less triangular organ.

They connect the uterus and ovaries, allowing the ovum released by ovulation to meet the sperm.

Whether fertilised or not, the egg joins the uterus through the Fallopian tube.
