Yes it is possible to conceive with one tube normal and patent. Actually our ovaries release one egg per cycle on alternate basis. So, if one of your tubes is blocked with both normal ovaries then your chances of conception are 50%. If only one ovary is functional then it compensates for the other ovary and releases egg in every cycle.
