Female reproductive organs. Endoscope view of the opening of one of the fallopian tubes in the uterus (womb). There are two fallopian tubes, one on either side of the uterus. One of the fallopian tubes receives the egg that is released from one of the two ovaries every month (ovulation). The egg travels along the fallopian tube to the uterus, where, if fertilised, the egg implants and grows.
