In brief: Many ways
If the tube is blocked or partially blocked, an egg can 'snag.
' if the tube is open but doesn't move properly the egg/embryo can GT stuck. Some believe, and it's likely true, that an abnormal embryo may sometimes stick in a tube for reasons unrelated to the tube.

In brief: Happens all the time
Eggs are picked up by the fallopian tube and if not fertilized melt away.
A fertilized egg, or embryo, can get caught in a blind cul de sac in the fallopian tube, possibly resulting in an ectopic, or tubal pregnancy.
