I appreciate your query.
For understanding your TVS - HSG report, you need to understand in brief the process of fertilization.
A female requires active functioning ovaries, from which mature follicles ( eggs ) are released every month.
A healthy cervix and vagina is essential for sperm transport into the uterus and then , the fallopian tubes are responsible for transport of sperm and egg, and the fertilization occurs in the fallopian tube.
The uterus is where the fertilized embryo will implant and develop.
Now, coming to your report, the uterus appears normal
Both ovaries are normal sized, but follicles ( eggs ) are seen only in the right one.
The fallopian tubes appear to be open ( not blocked ) as dye has passed from them into the peritoneal cavity.
However, to explain to you your chances of pregnancy, theoretically,yes you can get pregnant.
However, the major deterrent is your age.
How long have you been trying for conception ??
Have you had any surgery or disease in the past?
At 45, the capacity of the ovaries to produce eggs is drastically reduced.
That is the major factor that will impede pregnancy.
For proper assessment of your ovarian reserve ( ability of ovaries to produce good quality eggs ), you should have a proper regular monthly menstrual cycle.
Also, get your AMH ( Anti - Mullerian Hormone ), which reflects your ovarian reserve.
Your AFC ( antral follicular count ) on ultrasound, is not mentioned, which also indicates your current ovarian reserve.
If your ovarian reserve is depleted, chances of pregnancy fall quite a lot.
Also, a major factor is your partner/husband 's semen analysis report.
Please get that done too, after 3 days of abstinence from sexual activity.
With these investigations ( also ruling out thyroid, sugar and other conditions ), please consult an infertility practitioner in your area, as your case will be tremendously benefitted with the use of ART ( Assisted Reproductive Technology )
I urge you to actively pursue this at the earliest, as time is of the essence in your case.
Hope this helped you.
