    How do ciliated cells move an ovum along the oviduct? Is it the oviduct?
    I don't know..

    movement of ovum in oviduct caused by fluid, set in motion by wall peristalsis, is the primary propelling force. This force may lead to back-and-forth motion, but the net movement is in the forward direction. Segmental contraction, fluid circulations due to ciliary beat and the force due to brushing action of cilia on the ovum, are of minor significance. When wall peristalsis is inhibited, cilia activity may lead to ovum movement at near normal rates.
