Hello Sheryll,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community to ask if pregnancy is possible.

Do you have one ovary? Was the other one surgically removed? If so, why?

In most situations, getting pregnant with one ovary is not only possible, but no more difficult than if you had two ovaries. More important is whether the fallopian tube, a small tube that connects the ovary to the uterine cavity, is intact. If you are missing the fallopian tube that is attached to the remaining ovary, a natural conception is very unlikely.

If a woman is missing one of her ovaries, the remaining ovary will continue to ovulate each month, making pregnancy possible. Continue to have sex around the time of your ovulation, ideally a few days before. There are a few different ways to determine when you are about to ovulate: ovulation predictor kits, tracking cervical mucus and taking your basal body temperature each morning. Some women are also able to feel ovulation.

If you aren’t pregnant within one year, or six months if you are over the age of 35, you might want to consult with your obstetrician or a reproductive endocrinologist to make sure there isn’t another reason why you are having difficulty getting pregnant.

If the fallopian tube is absent, however, the egg is unable to travel toward the uterus and fertilization cannot take place.
