Hi Alyssa16!

Thank you for your post!

Yes, pregnancy is certainly a possibility with IVF and you don't need any ovaries at all! But if you don't use your ovary, the egg will have to come from another woman. You will have to work closely with your doctor about your remaining ovary - they may do tests to analyse it's viability before starting IVF.

At 36 you should be looking into this sooner rather than later as it can take some time to see results.

Good luck!
