Hi Icamacho08, since I'm not a doctor I try not to say anything with absolute certainty, but I don't think its likely that one can conceive naturally without fallopian tubes. This is not to say you can't get pregnant, its very possible to conceive with In Vitro Fertilization. The role of the fallopian tubes are to carry the egg that has been released from the ovary during ovulation. The egg can then be fertilized in the fallopian tube by the traveling sperm during intercourse. After a few days it leaves the fallopian tube and implants in the uterus. So without fallopian tubes I believe you would have to do IVF in which they collect your eggs and your partner's sperm and join them together outside of your womb and then place them inside your uterus.

Did you have your fallopian tubes surgically removed?
