Fallopian Tubes

Ducts that communicate the uterus to the ovaries. Formed by 3 segments: isthmus- which connects it to the uterus; blister and infundibulum, which contain the fimbriae that catch the egg during ovulation. Fertilization occurs here, followed by the transport of the embryo to the uterus (which takes 5 days) in the phase of blastocyst in order for implantation to happen.
