No, women have to purchase fallopian tubes in order to get pregnant. Thankfully you can buy them from you local DIY store.

Not all women. I don't have any. But that took a couple of surgeries to make that so. All women (who do not have certain birth defects) are born with fallopian tubes. It is the route the egg takes to the uterus every month.

Dear Megan Goodgirl,

I love your questions, so straightforward, straight-from-the-shoulder...

And this one is right up my alley, this was part of what I here you go, more than you ever wanted to know and illustrated too...

Every month, the Fallopian tubes conduct the woman's egg from the ovaries, egg factory and storehouse, to the uterus or womb. When a woman becomes pregnant, the sperm actually travel up these Fallopian tubes to meet the egg and fertilize it; so when it reaches the uterus, the egg is ready for implantation there.

So yes, all women (typically) have Fallopian tubes. The tubes are also known as oviducts or salpinges (singular salpinx), and they were discovered by a wonderful Italian anatomist, Gabriele Falloppio (1523-1562), for whom they were named. Falloppio also studied and named other important structures of a woman's reproductive anatomy, including the vagina, placenta, and clitoris.

This illustration shows a portrait of Gabriele Falloppio, along with a drawing of the uterus, vagina, ovaries and Fallopian tubes he so carefully documented for science.
