The female reproductive system includes two fallopian tubes, one on each side of the uterus. When the ovary releases an egg, finger-like projections at the flared end of the tube catch the egg. It is there, in the tube, that conception occurs if the egg meets sperm and becomes fertilized. Tiny hairs inside the tube’s lining push the resulting embryo (fertilized egg) out of the tube and into the uterus where it implants and grows.

Tubal disease, a disorder in which the tubes are blocked or damaged, is responsible for approximately 25 percent to 35 percent of all female factor infertility. Tubal factor infertility is defined as any anatomic abnormality that prevents the sperm and egg from uniting.
