How do ovulated oocytes get into the uterus?

1. Because ovaries are within the uterus, the ovulated egg is already within the uterus.

2. Cilia within an oviduct create currents that sweep the egg toward the uterus.

3. The oocyte actively swims through the oviduct, using its flagellum.

4. Fimbriae sweep over the oviduct.
