How to use Fallopian in a sentence
The Fallopian tubes receive the ova and carry them to the uterus.
The base of the triangle is upward, and at each lateral angle one of the Fallopian tubes opens.
If untreated, it can spread through the uterus to the fallopian tubes causing salpingitis.
The fallopian tubes carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus.
Above, there is the Fallopian tube, already described; below and in front is the round ligament; behind, the ovary projects backward, and just above this, when the broad ligament is stretched out as in fig.Advertisement
In partial salpingectomy, the most common occlusion method, the fallopian tubes are cut and tied with suture material.
The Fallopian tubes, like many other tubes in the body, are made chiefly of unstriped muscle, the outer layer of which is longitudinal and the inner circular; deep to this are the submucous and mucous coats, the latter being lined with ciliated epithelium '(see' Epithelial Tissues), and thrown into longitudinal pleats.
Damaged or blocked fallopian tubes can, in some cases, be repaired by tubal surgery.
While ovulation stimulation and egg retrieval research for fallopian tube problems continued, scientists also began experimenting with techniques to remedy other conception issues.
Each fallopian tube is either tied or burned closed.Advertisement
Fallopian tubes-The pair of narrow tubes leading from a woman's ovaries to the uterus.
After an egg is released from the ovary during ovulation, fertilization (the union of sperm and egg) normally occurs in the fallopian tubes.
In Bell's palsy, this process typically occurs after the seventh cranial nerve's passage through the stylomastoid foramen into a tiny bony tube called the fallopian canal.
If the inflammation within the fallopian canal is severe enough, it will exert sufficient pressure on the seventh cranial nerve to make it impossible for the nerve to carry messages to and from the brain.
If untreated, a chlamydial infection can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and scarring of fallopian tubes in women, causing infertility or ectopic pregnancies.Advertisement
The parts of the body involved in the menstrual cycle include the uterus and cervix, the ovaries, fallopian tubes, the brain and pituitary gland, and the vagina.
When the egg is released it travels through one of the two fallopian tubes and down towards the uterus.
If pelvic inflammatory disease is present, the fallopian tubes may become scarred and possibly cause later infertility or other reproductive problems.
For pregnancy to occur, an egg must become mature inside a woman's ovary, be released, and travel to the fallopian tube.
Sperm must travel through the reproductive track to fertilize the egg in the fallopian tube.Advertisement
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)-Any infection of the lower female reproductive tract (vagina and cervix) that spreads to the upper female reproductive tract (uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries).
The egg makes its way into a fallopian tube, a structure that guides the egg away from the ovary toward the uterus.
The group of diving cells begins to move along the fallopian tube toward the uterus.
Ectopic pregnancy-A pregnancy that develops outside of the mother's uterus, such as in the fallopian tube.
The internal structures of the reproductive tract, including the ovaries, uterus, and fallopian tubes, are normal.Advertisement
Most of the time, the egg remains in the fallopian tubes; hence an ectopic pregnancy is commonly referred to as tubal pregnancy.
If the pregnancy has progressed beyond the point where an injection can dissolve the egg, surgery on the fallopian tube may be required.
A tubal pregnancy, also called an ectopic pregnancy, happens when a woman's egg implants in her fallopian tube instead of her uterus.
The fallopian tubes connect the ovaries to the uterus.
Each month during a normal menstrual cycle, an egg is released from one of the ovaries, travels down the fallopian tube on that side, and enters the uterus.
Occasionally, a fertilized egg will implant in the fallopian tube and begin to develop there.
But, there isn't room in the fallopian tube for a baby to develop.
Women who have scarring in their fallopian tubes are at higher risk.
They are often diagnosed when the woman begins to have abdominal or pelvic pain from the stretched fallopian tube.
An ultrasound will reveal that the uterus is empty and help the doctor discover the location of the pregnancy in the fallopian tube.
The ultrasound may need to be done by inserting the ultrasound probe into the vagina, because that gives the best view of the uterus and fallopian tubes.
If the fallopian tube has not ruptured and the tubal pregnancy is caught very early, one treatment is medication to terminate the pregnancy.
This involves making small incisions in the abdomen, inserting a camera with very small surgical tools, and removing the pregnancy while attempting to preserve the fallopian tube.
A woman does not need both of her fallopian tubes to become pregnant.
When you ovulate, likely toward the end of this week, the egg will be released into the fallopian tube to wait for your significant other's sperm.
This is a very serious condition when the fetus implants into the fallopian tubes or ovaries rather than the uterus.
If the ectopic pregnancy isn't caught early, the fetus will grow until the fallopian tube ruptures, resulting in bleeding and abdominal pain.
A tubal ligation involves cutting the fallopian tubes, which carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus.
The doctor uses the camera to locate the fallopian tubes, then cuts the tubes and either seals them with clips or uses a technique called cauterization to close the ends by burning them.
At that time, the uterus is still enlarged and the fallopian tubes are easy to reach through a small incision just under the navel.
There is a newer method of blocking off the fallopian tubes which does not require any incisions.
Then, he/she uses it to push small metallic coils through the uterus and up into the fallopian tubes.
The coils stay in the fallopian tubes and cause scar tissue to form, which seals off the tubes.
When an egg is fertilized, it travels through the fallopian tubes where it implants into the uterus.
The most common place for an egg to implant other than the uterus is the fallopian tubes.
A tubal pregnancy, also known as an ectopic pregnancy, is one where the baby is implanted outside of the uterus--most commonly in the fallopian tubes.
When the man ejaculates inside the woman's vagina, his sperm swim up into her uterus and fallopian tubes.
He/she will also need to perform a variety of tests to make sure your conception problems are not caused by blocked fallopian tubes, Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOS), or other conditions that Clomid can't successfully treat.
During intercourse, sperm needs to travel through the vagina, past the cervix, into the uterus, and then on to reach the egg that is making its way down the fallopian tubes into the uterus.
Day fourteen of the cycle (mid-cycle) is the crucial day for conception when the egg is released from the ovary and begins its journey toward the fallopian tube.
The fallopian tubes are separated and sealed, preventing the sperm from meeting and fertilizing the women's eggs.
The goal of each method is to prevent the egg from reaching the uterus by creating a break or barrier in the fallopian tubes.
If the woman is sure she will not want to have any future children, the fallopian tubes will often be cut and a small section of the tubes are removed.
A tubal pregnancy means that the egg was fertilized inside the fallopian tube and cannot progress to a healthy pregnancy.
An ectopic pregnancy is one in which the fertilized egg does not implant itself in the lining of the uterus, but stays (often) in the fallopian tube or in some other area outside the uterus.
A fertilized egg outside the uterus should be removed as quickly as possible because the most common outcome of untreated ectopic pregnancy is a burst fallopian tube, which is a medical emergency and in some women leads to infertility.
During ovulation, the egg is released from the ovary and it travels into the uterus through the fallopian tube.
The goal of the procedure is to prevent the egg from traveling out of the ovary, through the fallopian tube, and into the uterus.
To prevent this, many doctors remove a piece of the fallopian tubes rather than simply cutting them.
A tubal pregnancy occurs more often in women with unaltered tubes when the fertilized egg implants itself in the fallopian tube before reaching the uterus.
A tubal ligation, often called getting your "tubes tied," is a procedure that prevents pregnancy by changing the structure of the fallopian tubes.
The egg, which normally travels through the fallopian tube, is unable to enter the uterus during ovulation because of the obstruction.
While using the viewing instrument to see, the surgeon cuts, blocks, or ties the fallopian tube.
The surgeon makes the incision right beneath the belly button because the fallopian tubes rest higher after a woman gives birth.
A pregnancy that is located in the fallopian tube is one type of extrauterine pregnancy.
The only clear diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is seeing the embryo implanted in the fallopian tube or some other area outside the uterus.
Ovulation is the process where the egg leaves the ovary and travels down the fallopian tube to be fertilized by the sperm.
The process begins when sperm enter the vagina and travel through the cervix and enter the fallopian tubes.
This single cell moves down the fallopian tube and it begins to divide into a ball of cells.
Endometriosis occurs when the tissue that usually lines the uterus grows on other organs in the abdomen, like the fallopian tubes, the ovaries, the outside of the uterus, or the bowels and bladder.
Endometriosis may lead to scarring; if the fallopian tubes become scarred from the implants, the egg may not be able to travel through them to get fertilized.
One theory is that of "retrograde menstruation," where small amounts of endometrial tissue go backward through the fallopian tubes and travel out into the pelvis and abdomen.
However, sexual intercourse during the end of this time can lead to conception a few days later because, under the correct conditions, sperm can live in the fallopian tubes for up to 72 hours.
Ovulation occurs midway between menstrual cycles and is the process when the egg leaves the fallopian tube and travels to the uterus to get fertilized by the male's sperm.
The male sperm has to travel through the mucus of the cervix, up through the uterus and into the fallopian tubes to meet the egg.
The egg then travels down the fallopian tube, and into the uterus where it attaches and grows.
When the egg implants on the fallopian tube, it may be referred to as a tubal pregnancy.
Damage to the fallopian tubes can prevent the fertilized egg from traveling down the tube and into the uterus.
If the egg is unable to pass through, it can become implanted in the fallopian tube.
What factors can contribute to damage to the fallopian tube?
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is infection or inflammation in the uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes.
Women who have ongoing PID may develop scars that damage the fallopian tube.
Abnormalities in the fallopian tubes that are present at birth can increase the risk of an ectopic pregnancy.
Endometriosis can cause scarring in the tissues near or inside the fallopian tubes that can block the passage.
The egg can't continue to grow normally in the fallopian tube, and the pregnancy will never be normal.
If the egg continues to develop, it can burst the fallopian tube.
The birth control works like a tubal ligation in that the fallopian tubes are blocked to prevent the egg from traveling into the uterus.
Essure is different, however, because the doctor places the inserts into the fallopian tubes without invasive surgery.
The Essure procedure is very quick; it takes roughly 10 minutes to place the inserts in the fallopian tubes and the whole process takes about 30 to 45 minutes.
The doctor uses a speculum to open the vagina and he or she places a tube into the uterus that releases dye into the fallopian tubes.
A radiologist takes an x-ray of the area to ensure that the fallopian tubes are completely blocked.
Essure birth control consists of two implants that are each placed in the fallopian tubes.
Since the egg is unable to travel down the fallopian tubes, they can't make their way to the uterus and they can't get fertilized.
The Essure procedure is non-surgical and it is not invasive because it uses the body's natural pathways rather than incisions to reach the fallopian tubes.
However, it is necessary to have a consultation before having the birth control system put into place and to have a follow-up test that makes sure the fallopian tubes are completely blocked.
The doctor uses a hysteroscope, which is a very thin tube that has a tiny camera lens that allows the doctor to see the fallopian tubes.
Metal coil implants are carried in a catheter through the uterus and into the fallopian tubes, where they are placed.
In the months that follow, scar tissue develops around the coil implants, which creates a barrier in the fallopian tubes.
You can see the Essure Procedure Animation for an overview of how the doctor places the inserts into the fallopian tubes, as well as an animation of the Essure Confirmation Test that follows three months after completing the procedure.
Sperm can live for two to three days in the fallopian tubes, so even sex the day before ovulation can lead to conception.
Usually, conception takes place in the fallopian tube.
Usually it takes five days for the blastocyst to travel through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus where it implants in the lining of the uterus around the sixth day.
Healthy sperm can live and survive in the woman's fallopian tube for around three to five days, though.
An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg remains in the fallopian tube instead of in the uterus.
