I have tubal patency in only one tube. Can I become a mother through IUI?

In the artificial insemination process, fertilization takes place in the Fallopian tubes and, therefore, it is necessary that at least one of them is permeable, that is, it allows the egg and sperm to meet.

If only one of the tubes is functional, achieving pregnancy is more complicated, but not impossible, since fertilization can take place in the other tube.
