Default answer

The correct answer is D.
Ectopic pregnancy is the most common cause of a hematosalpinx (bleeding into the fallopian tubes). Endometriosis and tubal carcinoma are less common causes of hematosalpinx. Another less common cause of hematosalpinx is a transverse vaginal septum, which obstructs menstrual blood flow (cryptomenorrhea) and backs up in the fallopian tubes.
