Adhesions tangle your fallopian tubes

A body's inflammatory response to endometrial implants can cause adhesions, or scar tissue, that really snarl up your fallopian tubes. Common sites for paratubal (around the tube) adhesions to form and, as a result, interfere with fertilization or egg/embryo transport are i By the fimbriae (at the ovarian end of the tube). When the fimbriae become entangled in adhesions, the tube has trouble picking up the egg after ovulation.

i Around the outside of the tube (causing the tubes to stick to the uterus, pelvic wall, or intestine).

i Inside the tube itself, making it difficult for an egg to get through the tube to the uterus or the sperm to get to the egg.
