In brief: From inside the tube

The fallopian tube secretes small amounts of fluid inside itself to bathe the interior in an environment that keeps it moist and healthy and appropriate for a possible fertilization of an egg.
If the tube is damaged or blocked, the fluid can accumulate and result in a hydrosalpinx.
