Fallopian tube facts and mnemonics

Hello! I read some facts about the fallopian tube so I'll be sharing it with you today!

What part of the fallopian tube does fertilization occur?
Ampulla of the fallopian tube is the most common site for fertilization.

Sometimes, the embryo isn't transported to the uterus by the cilia, causing ectopic pregnancy. This is why, ampulla of the fallopian tube is the most common site of ectopic pregnancy.

How do I remember this? Mnemonic!
FAME
Fertilization
AMpulla
Ectopic

Another random fact to remember is, isthmus is most common site of rupture of ectopic pregnancies because it is inflexible and has a thick muscularis.

Mnemonic: ISTHMUS
Inflexible
Stiff
THick
MUScularis

That's all!
