Why fertilization only takes place in fallopian tube?

Why fertilization only takes place in fallopian tube?

Other places too: Normal pregnancies start with conception in fallopian tube. Then the embryo develops over a few days to mature enough to stick to the endometrium in the uterine cavity. If mature enough then it will attach and grow. If fertilization occured in the uterine cavity, then the embryo would fall out of the uterus. Ivf allows for outside fertilization. Fertilization outside tube yields ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

I am 36 and i found out i wasn't ovulating once i came offbirth control. Does the cilia in the fallopian tubes work normally again, once you quit smoking? If so, how long does it take. I have been trying to concieve for 1 1/2 years. I had 2 kids in the pa

Excellent : Excellent answer above. We do know that all of the negative reproductive effects of smoking are reversible except for the damage to the ovary that leads to diminished ovarian reserve as discussed above. Most infertility specialists want a minimum of three months of cessation of smoking before proceeding with treatments. It is unlikely that the negative effects of smoking on the fallopian tubes would persist past 12 months. There can be permanent damage to a fallopian tube after an ectopic pregnancy resolves either spontaneously or from medical or conservative surgical treatment. ...Read more

How long does it take for sperm to get to the fallopian tubes after intercourse during my fertile days am trying for a baby?

Here are some ...: It has been known that sperms usually live 3-5 days after ejaculation. How soon do they reach Fallopian tubes?

When ovaries and uterus are removed surgically, do they also take out the fallopian tubes and lymph nodes and could that cause abdominal lymphadema?

When ovaries and uterus are removed surgically, do they also take out the fallopian tubes and lymph nodes and could that cause abdominal lymphadema?

Sounds like: You had a total hysterectomy, so yes, tubes are removed. If you had this operation for cancer, lymph nodes were probably removed also. But this would probably not cause lymphedema. Consult your gyn for specific recommendations. ...Read more
