  • Since it only takes one egg and one sperm I would say it quite possible. May take time but I think it could happen if there are not other medical problems. My friend got pregnant no problem with one tube has 3 kids!

  • Plenty of sperm produced with one testicle, so the problem might be the one fallopian tube, which would mean that every other month the egg wouldn't be accessible. So I'd say maybe half the chance of a person with both fallopian tubes? But on the months with the egg accessible to the tube, then the same chance as anyone else.

  • I have a friend who only has one ovary and has two children. PLUS she has MS. It is certainly possible to get pregnant if a woman is lacking a part other than the uterus. Plus, each testicle produces millions of sperm by itself ... It may take longer, but it can certainly happen. My davice for all people TTC is to stop trying and just practice, practice, practice.  I got pregnant very quickly after stopping birth control pills (about 2 1/2 months after stopping) and we didn't TRY ... we just practiced.
