In brief: Fallopian tubes
Fallopian tubes are paired tubular structures, right and left, that connect the uterus to the pelvic cavity.
The tube picks up an egg (oocyte) after ovulation at its far end and transports it down towards the uterus. If the woman had intercourse sperm swims through the uterus into the tube at the near end, when conception occurs it is in the mid-portion of the tube.
