We know that after sexual intercourse, sperm enters the female body and continues to pass through the oviduct by swimming. "Swimming" implies the presence of fluid.

I want to know what that fluid is called. Also could you please tell me the color of that fluid? Is it yellow/off-white?

Specifically in the fallopian tubes, the fluid is called tubal fluid, and is produced by the innermost mucosal layer of the tubes (specifically, the peg cells in the epitelium)

  • In the follicles, there is the follicular fluid, liquor folliculi.
  • In the uterus, the endometrial fluid.
  • In the cervix, cervical fluid.

I don't know about the color. For what it's worth, cervical fluid varies from white to yellowish, but it's transparent when it's best for spermatozoa to swim.
