My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over a yr. My doctor found cysts on my ovaries and fibroids. In removing the cysts and fibroids, they had to remove my right overy; which he said he couldn't save because of so much stuff going on around or on it. I'm wondering is it more harder to get pregnant now and what should I do?

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. As long as you have once working ovary, you can get pregnant although your chances are slimmer, it is not impossible. Go to your physician and ne sure your ovary is in good working order. I hope this helps.
