Fallopian Tubes, also called fallopian ducts, are narrow tubes that join the ovaries and the uterus. The ovaries, fallopian tubes and the uterus have their roles to play in pregnancy. Ovaries create eggs (called ovum). Each month, an ovum passing through the fallopian tube reaches the uterus.

The egg sticks to the wall of the uterus (the endometrium). If it is fertilized, it begins to grow in the uterus; otherwise, it is shed along with the endometrium in periods. When sperm fertilizes an egg, it is usually in the fallopian tube. The egg passes through the fallopian tube slowly. If it receives sperm, it gets fertilized.
There is a possibility of get pregnant with blocked fallopian tubes. If only one tube is blocked, there is still a chance of getting pregnant with one fallopian tube. In this case, the doctor may also suggest fertility pills that can help the woman getting pregnant.

In a natural pregnancy, the fallopian tubes play an important role. They transport the egg to the uterus. The egg is meant to grow in the uterus. Without fallopian tubes, it would be very hard for the egg to reach the uterus.
If there is a blockage, cut or any other obstruction in the fallopian tube, the egg may implant itself in the fallopian tubes. And because of this, pregnancy in the fallopian tube may take place. It is called an ectopic pregnancy and is dangerous to both, the mother and the baby.
Therefore, it seems necessary for the tubes to be healthy (without any blockage) in order to deliver the egg safely into the uterus.
