To get pregnant a woman needs to have sperm in her vagina at the middle of her cycle. She needs to still be making eggs (not yet in menopause) and have at least one open tube so the sperm and egg can get together. If your only tube is burned closed, you are probably not able to get pregnant unless your doctor opens the tube or goes around the tube with in vitro fertilization in which your egg would be removed, put with your partner's sperm, and the resulting fertilized egg put into your uterus. If you are in menopause, you cannot get pregnant because you are no longer making eggs.
