Fallopian tubes are two not one- right and left which carry eggs from respective ovaries to uterus where womb is grown.It is possible in one sided block that women get pregnant.
Hysterosalpingography or tubal insufflation test is done to see patency of tubes. The most common cause of blockage is PID-pelvic inflammatory disease.Go for the recommended test to see if tubes are open now.

Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic

There are two fallopian tubes in the body on the left and the right. Fertilization and pregnancy can occur if only one of the tubes are blocked. Fertilization would not occur if there is bilateral blockage. Consult a gynecologist in this regard. Fallopian tube patency tests will have to be done and an ultrasound taken.
