Fallopian tubes: Is pregnancy possible with only one?

Question

I have only one fallopian tube. Is it possible for me to get pregnant?

Barbara

Answer

Pregnancy is possible with only one fallopian tube — as long as you have one or both ovaries, you still ovulate, and the remaining fallopian tube is healthy.

See your gynecologist or reproductive endocrinologist for evaluation if you're not able to get pregnant within one year of trying.
