Usually, fertilization occurs in one of the fallopian tubes, but the implementation is carried out in the uterus; However, if the Horn is obstructed (due to previous infection or another cause of force majeure) the egg moves very slowly or, inclusive, may be stuck in such manner which does not reach its objective: the uterus.
