The fallopian tubes are part of a woman′s reproductive system. This system is made up of the parts of the body involved in having sex, producing and fertilising eggs, carrying a baby and giving birth. It includes the ovaries, womb (uterus) and the vagina.
The two fallopian tubes come out from the sides of the womb. The tubes are very fine and about 10cm long. An egg is released from an ovary during the menstrual cycle every month. The egg moves through the fallopian tube and down to the womb.
