I would like to know if I'm thru with menopause and have only one tube,which back in 1985 after the birth of my son I had it burnt closed,could i still get pregnant. What are my chances which I hope there is some chance. Please let me know. Thank-You
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.
