Both my fallopian tubes have been removed, can I still get pregnant?

Yes, but you would need in vitro fertilization (IVF). The reason for this is that althought you are producing eggs and have your womb for a baby to develop, the tubes which allow the fertilised egg to travel to your womb are missing. IVF is where eggs are removed from your ovary using ultrasound scanning and a fine needle just before ovulation, mixed with sperm outside the womb, and the resulting embryo or embryos are re-inserted into your womb.

The moment of conception
Normally, only one sperm can break through the outer membrane of the egg; once the sperm enters the egg, the sperm loses its tail.

After six days, the cluster of cells develops a hollow cavity. Called a blastocyst, it attaches itself to the wall of the womb. Some cells grow into the womb''''s lining and the fetal life-support system (the placenta) begins to form.
