I know how the Female eproductive System works.


And I have a basic Organ Layout to.


But if you look at any Dyagram you see the Fallopian Tube and at the end it it is the Fimbriae or Fingers.


Right after the Fingers is the Overy.


And yes I do know that when an Overy lets an Egg out the Fingers grab it and pull it into the Fallopian Tube.


But am I right that the Fingers are right on top of the Overy?


Because if you look at any photo the Fingers are a little bit away from the Overy. But I always thought this is to show you a Clear image of the Fingers and Overy.


I think the Fingers and Overy have to be conected or the Egg would Float away into the Body?


Thank you.

My anatomy is a little rusty, but I think the current thinking is that the fimbriae just brush the ovary, there is no actual physicial connection.
