If your ovaries are ok, with only one fallopian tube you are only potentially able to get pregnant every other month. Your best chances of getting pregnant are about 2 weeks before the start of your period. The egg is only able to be fertilized within about a day of being released (ovulation). So statistically it's actually not easy to conceive. (Doesn't seem that was with so many "accidental" pregnancies).

There are ovulation kits that can help you track when you would be most fertile. The other ladies are right, though. Age is not your friend when trying to get pregnant. There are many risks to you and the baby. You should speak to a doctor with experience in this area.

You are 48. Chances are the fallopian tube is not the problem, your ovaries are. It is next to impossible to get pregnant naturally at your age.

At 48 your risk factors are increasing and the odds of conceiving even with 2 tubes are decreasing. I am not saying it is not possible. Put yourself in the hands of a good high-risk fertility doctor.
