Caption: The auricle (trumpet-shaped ending) of the female fallopian tube, the channel which conducts the ovum (egg) from the the ovary (where it is formed) to the uterus, where the fertilised ovum develops into an embryo. Fertilisation (the fusion of a female ovum a male sperm) actually occurs in the fallopian tube. At around the 14th day of a woman's cycle the mature ovum is expelled from the follicle & received by the tube ending, passing down the fallopian tube towards the uterus (womb). Should fertilisation occur at this stage, the fertilised ovum is implanted into the wall of the uterus (endometrium), where development of the foetus continues until birth.
