Doctor

A:   Usually if only one side of fallopian tube is removed, pregnancy is still possible because the other tube is still patent to carry the egg to the uterus. On the other hand, if a pregnancy does occur following 6 months, other options of pregnancy would include IVF after a complete evaluation has been made.
